After I took this shot I stopped and looked around at how many people were up early that morning, I counted 21 people standing at the tarn, only 2 years ago I hiked up in the dark and was at the tarns by myself, I can give you many comparisons like this.
Personally I think it’s to bloody easy to get here... in 2013 3000 people went to the hut, in 2018 they are on target for 14000 Without waffling I don’t think that’s a great thing.... my solution.
Rip up the wooden autoban,close the track until it’s muddy as hell... make people hike the Dover( you will only do it once), Put 30kg of salt in the tarn and get a big Croc from Darwin to guard it..... at least you will earn the shot then.
For the record I’ve promised myself not to photograph the tarn again until I have exhausted other options in this area ... there are plenty of them and I dare you to be original( unlike this shot).
Ruapehu you are a stunner 💜
