Lake Okareka, Rotorua, North Island, New Zealand
Image captured while on the beautiful Lake Okareka Walkway. Lake Okareka is
one of the smaller lakes in the Rotorua District.
A signpost on the walkway says that: "Standing here today, it's hard to
imagine the incredible violence that formed the land around you. In 1886 the
ground shook as thunderous explosions spewed rock and mud up to 15
kilometres away. Mount Tarawera was literally split open. Although the earth
is now at peace, change is actually still taking place. ..."
The 5.5 kilometre return walkway at Lake Okareka includes a raised
500m boardwalk, as shown in the picture below (Image No. LOK-2):

obtain the best appreciation of the quality of the images on this site, they
should be displayed at a relatively small size, because each image has been
reduced in size to a maximum width of only 870 pixels, from the original
width of at least 4900 pixels (or 6000 pixels from my full frame cameras).
In addition, the images have been saved at a low quality setting.
