    Hi, its all detailed in the full post here - http://aperturepriority.co.nz/2012/1...m-legacy-pt-1/

    The falls are Marokopa Falls in the Waikato. There would be a safety barrier in the scene if I replicated this shot today...:-)

    I'm not sure what you mean by "the openness of the scene is misplaced"?

    cheers, Jason.

    Korkoro Falls is in dense rainforest as opposed to the relative open area this picture shows, so it can't be the same one (and it isn't, as you've named it). It just struck me as looking quite similar, but of course Korokoro doesn't (to my knowledge) have a safety barrier.

    I've just googled Korokoro Falls and your quite right there are some simiarities in appearance. There will be a lot more safety barriers around now than there were 40+ years ago when that image was taken.....:-)

    All those years ago enthusiastic snappers didn't have digital cameras. Now they are falling over themselves (and over cliffs...) in their zealousness to capture the definitive image of once-wild places, hence safety barriers, lookouts, engineered gantries, platforms and steps are appearing even in the most remote rainforests here (in Victoria) and in New Zealand. Where will the chance for real wilderness be, a generation from now?

    Congratulations on this Jason...your essays are great, and it is especially nice that you got the equipment as well as the story behind it. And now, you are getting to share that legacy. Pretty cool.

    It's great to see that one guy that we never heard of, just out taking pictures for his own enjoyment, can have left us so much beauty. Many thanks to you and the family.

    Perfectly put Jesse, I know the family appreciate the enjoyment people are getting from these, there are more to come.

    Thanks, Jason.
