The recent death of a Whangarei local woman after plumbiting from the Tikipunga Waterfalls does not appear to have put this young woman off. Seen here standing dangerously close to a potentially similar fait. The rocks under foot are very slipery and the water moves with considerable force. She is seen here making her way back to safety, in this case without incident...

Nice sense of scale but lacks depth... subject could be more prominent
