Wairaka

This statue of a young maiden sits atop a rock in the harbor at Whakatane and her name is Wairaka. Click here for her story.

So symbolic even in this day and age as women still struggle to show their power. The picture is very dramatic and beautiful. Nicely done ...

This is so, so awesome, Betty.
If you hadn't mentioned the statue, I'd have thought it to be a real woman up there.

Awesome catch of the statue, the rock and the water catching some light.
I could stare at this frame for a really long time. :)
