Reflection Thursday

It's an odd one I know ... reflection in the viewing mirror at the Springs


Te Waikoropupu Springs also known as the Pupu Springs, it is the largest, clearest of New Zealand's freshwater springs. The basin containing the main spring is 42 metres across, and through a system of mirrors scientists have recorded the horizontal visibility at 62 metres (203 feet) a world record - the springs are considered to be the clearest fresh water in the world.

- The only place known to have greater clarity is under the Ross Sea Ice Shelf in Antarctica

- 14000 litres of water per second is discharged on average.

- The water stays underground between 2-10 years before being forced out.

No ... just the new navigation ... at present ... not sure if it is being fixed but these are just my last two ... if you go by certain methods you get the noumber after a multiple of six .. other ways you get all the last six ... the numbers underneath are the pages ... had someone looking at my first photos a few minutes ago so I think if it prompts you to do this a bit easier that is good.

Some topics in the Forums about the new stuff.
