Waterfalls of NZ

I couldn't find a forum on this, so I thought I'd create one. I haven't seen a huge amount of NZ, but even so, I've seen some spectacular waterfalls. These are a few of them.

The Waikato River is unbelievable in the intensity of the colour - I walked a few km beside it in conditions ranging from clear skies to torrential downpour, and the colour never changed. I still remember that day so clearly - including the wagtail-like bird that celebrated the return of the sun with me with an extended aerobatic dance and the occasional perch on shoulder, camera bag, chest, head and arm for singing.
