Fiji Islands, Taveuni

Fiji Waterfall, Taveuni - Fiji






This is one of Paul's favourite Fiji images. It was taken on the island of Taveuni in Fiji with the Fuji G617 Panoramic Camera. The waterfall is located on the east coast of Taveuni, known as the Garden Island, and can only be reached by a 90 minute hike along the Lavena Coastal Walk. We were lucky on the day that we took this as the weather was overcast with the occasional shower making the image low contrast allowing heaps of detail. Many people swim in the surprisingly icy waters to the waterfalls (there's actually another waterfall slightly to the left but out of shot). Most people go to the more popular Bouma Falls which are not far away so you may get the place to yourself. We hired a guide in Lavena who not only carried the tripod but who also constantly ran off into the bushes or climbed coconut trees to provide us with a different fruit each time. 
We produce one of the postcard ranges that sell in Fiji and this image is one of the most popular ones. We try to make it to Fiji at least once a year so if you see us, give us a BULA (pronounced Boolah). The correct greeting is "Ni sa bula vinaka" but everyone just says the Bula.
