Weekly Photo Challenge: Split-Second Story

In this week’s photo challenge, capture an image that tells a full story.

Aratiatia Dam

Before construction of the dam and hydro station, the Aratiatia Rapids were a prominent feature on the Waikato River. The dam construction meant that no water flowed over the rapids. However, several times a day, the Arariaria dam gates of the Waikato River are opened, which restores the rapids to their normal operation. There are several public lookout points on the high rock bluffs that dominate this turbulent stretch of Aratiatia Rapids.
