Wow. I'm in shock. 12th place!

Thanks for all the wonderful comments. graphicfunk - I love your portfolio - I'm honoured to receive such a compliment from you. I think I spent more time capturing this shot than any other in the past. Seems it was worth it.

The place is "Whangarei Falls". It's a smallish water fall on the edge of a volcano lava flow (so my Geography teacher told me) in my home town where I grew up.

The water falls into a sort of deepish round "hole" area (40m wide?) leading to some rather nice light/shading effects at times.

It has always been a favourite location of mine. It somehow oozes peace and calmness.

"Waldo" was a fluke. At the time I was frustrated he was in the shot at all and took several, timed to hide him behind the undergrowth as he moved around looking for his own cool photo. I just happened to take the photo within the submission dates for this challenge. I nearly deleted it before I noticed the new challenge title!

Nice bright photo with a little mystery. I have a real soft spot for cottoncandy water. Good luck
