Eggs has it correct - it's the Falls of Glomach, in Scotland as NNW suggested.

And keithj was spot-on to suggest the Cape Wrath Trail as the journey name. There's no signposting, no constructed trail, and not even a fixed route. You just get yourself from Fort William to Cape Wrath however you like, by connecting your choice of glens (valleys) and bealachs (passes).

The key to making this possible is that the land access laws in Scotland allow you to walk almost anywhere - and you can also camp almost anywhere along the way.

I walked the Cape Wrath Trail this northern summer in 18 days (with resupplies every 4 or 5 days), as part of my section-walk along the length and breadth of Scotland. The Cape Wrath Trail was easily the most amazing adventure I've had in the UK. I'm planning to do it again in 2023 by a different route - and not during the midge season this time :(

Lovely shot.
Can I just detect the top of Tahurangi Lodge on the LHS?
And is this on the Maketawa Track on the climb up Mt Taranaki ?

Port Hills? They were actually on fire when we were visiting Christchurch, so couldn't go there.

Correct eggs. We were lucky with the weather the first 1 1/2 days we stayed in the area.
Managed this walk and both glaciers, then the heavens opened up with a vengeance.

Not Cannibal Gorge.
The name of the river will suffice.
Big hint - this is a Great Walk.
And if I remember correctly they were working to put in a new bridge at this location.

No, but that's close enough. This was on the parallel valley floor walk. Hendes Hut is somewhere behind me over my left shoulder.
Angle and zoom is a bit confusing, the track rises to the view point approaching the terminal face of the glacier.
Merry Christmas eggs.
