Purakaunui Falls, New Zealand
"We Came, We Snap, We Leave"
Located 15 minutes walk from carpark. Once arrived in location, there is a small platform (fits 10-15 people) for you to enjoy the falls or take picture. Nothing much to do here except to meditate in tranquility of the greenery.

..... /// Frame 0008 \\\ ..... There are may times I get asked why I shoot film. Why do I wait and why do I bother. It’s simple really. I spend more time concentration on my actual composition, my lighting, my process and I only take a few frames rather than leave my camera 📷 on burst mode and hope. Yes having a digital camera is good for certain subjects in these modern days but 100 years ago photographers still got there passion and job done with the technology and cameras they had then.
Part of me always wants to be back 100 years ago photographing and not in the time we are now. Mainly because everyone seemed to care more about the story rather than, ‘what setting did you use to capture that’ also it would mean I could maybe be the first person to shoot a lot more and my style more grained in to history. That would be a bonus!
Anyways here is a frame I captured back last spring of a little hidden jem of a forest that always lights up with the smell of garlic and these b-e-a-utiful white flowers. Every time I look ok at it all I seem to smell is garlic, even sat at my desk 😂
What do you think? Could I of positioned it any better?

At 1300m of altitude in the mountains of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta and, accessible only after a 4 to 6 days hike, you can reach the Lost City of the indigenous #Tayrona .
Teyuna, as the city it's known by the #indigenous , was built between the VIII and IX century by the Tayrona people and consists of a system of 169 terraces connected by tiled roads and plazas making it the political and manufacturing center of the region. The Tayrona, at the time of the arrival of the Spaniards, abandoned the #city and then split in different smaller tribes most importantly the #Wiwa , #Kogui and #Arhuaco , all of whom still inhabit the Sierra Nevada and guard the sacred land.
The Lost City was only recently found by #Colombian archaeologist in 1976 following the footprints of treasure looters that found the city 4 years earlier. Since then the area has passed under the rule of different forces such as right-wing paramilitary groups as the AUC as well as left-wing guerrilla such as FARC and ELN. In 2003 the National Liberation Army (ELN) kidnapped 8 foreign tourists visiting the city. In 2005, after a large scale operation on behalf of the National Army, the site was once again made safe.
