Pupu Springs

Pupu Springs, originally uploaded by nzcjs.

On the way back to Pohara one evening we stopped in at Pupu springs near Takaka. The water here is wonderfully clear. In the image above you can see a turquoise area centre left that looks a little cloudy. This marks the site of the spring from which the clear fresh water originates. Apparently this water is some of the cleanest, freshest water anywhere on the planet. As such contact with the water is prohibited to prevent contamination. This wasn't always the case as can be seen in the images here.

The colours are quite amazing. The image above was taken on a cloudy and grey day yet the colours in the water were as you see in the picture. Very very beautiful.
