Syl­vain had planned a beach photo shoot to prac­tise his pho­tog­ra­phy at Kar­i­o­tahi Beach near Waiuku, but, as he and model Elena Sut­cliffe made their way down to­wards the beach, he spot­ted the wa­ter­fall. He pic­tured the shot im­me­di­ately, and asked Elena to stand be­hind the falls. The light­ing em­pha­sizes the in­cred­i­ble con­trast be­tween the clean white dress and the damp mossy rocks be­yond. While he used a 35mm lens for the ma­jor­ity of the photo shoot, Syl­vain liked the un­real ef­fect of the wide-an­gle lens, with the hu­man fig­ure over­shad­owed by the pow­er­ful falls and ap­pear­ing to be float­ing.
