Project 365: Day 24 – Reality is too bland

25th July 2014 – Taupo, New Zealand

Beyond pine trees, and timber forests,

the water flowed home, with no levy nor toll.
I paused to stare, to admire, to adore.
The strength and the surrealism, of the waterfall.

The paracetamol helped.

Woke up at noon, though. Checked out of the hostel, kept my stuff in the storage room, and started walking to Huka falls, only 6 KMs away. Oh, this was going to be a long day, with a total of 12 KMs walked!!

It’s a nice walk though, and the weather was amazing. Maybe it was the cold weather, but had an inkling to try HDR today. Tried it, then merged the pics using Photoshop’s photo merge Pro, and gave it a surrealistic touch.

I was never very good at art, but photoshop helps me to fake it.
