On my top ten (of Iceland Waterfalls), I’d place Gullfoss first but ordering them is difficult. Another worthwhile area is Gjain which has a number of picturesque falls all visible from one vantage point. I have written a story on Iceland’s natural beauty including photos of five of my favourite waterfalls (Dettifoss, Gullfoss, Svartifoss, Ofaerufoss […]
Lake Waikaremoana or ”sea of rippling water” in Maori is off the beaten track for most travelers to New Zealand. This waterfall is only accessible via boat or during a 53km hike round the lake. On the weekend I made the hike the lake was completely shrouded in mist, I think it was a worthwhile […]
I took this picture with an old APS camera and it’s one of my favorites from a 14 month trip to Australia between 1997 and 1998. I especially like the flower (possibly an Orchid) in the foreground.
Have you seen Union Falls in the southeast part of Yellowstone? Height is 260 ft.
August of 2007, my dad and I took a short trip to NZ, which I’ve always wanted to do. We were the only ones booked on the trip around lake Taupo and Tongiriro park that day. This was one of our stops. I do happen to be a Lord of the Rings fan, and I […]
Hi, I’m Jason from Malaysia. We stopped by Whangarei Falls and was welcomed by the sound of its falling water. It was a very beautiful and relaxing place to be. We spent over an hour here just appreciating nature at its best. I highly recommend everyone who visits the North Island to drop by this […]
My most successful backpacking trip was from Tuolumne Meadows to Glen Aulin with my two sons, my nephew, my oldest son’s friend, and two of my best friends (the two handsome old guys on the right side of the picture). To see all the water falls in the early summer is truly beautiful. The trip […]
I belong to Madurai, Tamil Nadu, South India. We have two falls near to our place, One is Kutlaadampatti Falls within 20-30 km from my house and another one, Kumbakkarai Falls, adjacent to a small town, Periakulam about 60 km from my place, Madurai. At present, I am working in Karaikal, a spot about 300 […]
The locals actually call this fall Horsetail Falls, not sure why. It is indeed seasonal. My partner and I have driven past this fall a number of times, most times there is water going over it but on other occasions there is none. The road coming out of Queenstown, named 99 bends by locals, hides […]
I loved Wailua Falls. We hiked to the bottom and swam in the gigantic pool. We got such beautiful pictures of our family. The hike was not well marked and very steep. We did not take the route that people have died on. The book Kauai Revealed told us of another trail head to take. […]
We found Alapena Falls first. Tons of mosquitos, not a deep enough pool to swim, lots of litter from beer bottles to other trash around the shore. Not a spectacular falls. Then my friends tried to take a shortcut back to the car and found Kapena Falls. Much prettier, still lots of mosquitos, less trash, […]
Hello! I thought you might want to see a couple of my photos of Teinefossen called “Pastel night” and “Teinefossen revisited”. Birkeland is my birthplace and this waterfall is one of the most picturesque places in the area (thus there are plenty of magnificent landscape views).
This is actually VERY easy to do, as the falls are within the ROYAL NATAL NATIONAL PARK, administered by Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife and you can stay in the camp TENDELE in the park. It is possible to hike relatively easily to near the bottom of the falls (from within the park itself) and even to […]
Hi, I am from Tamil Nadu, India. I had visited Courtallum Falls in Tirunelveli District, Suruli Falls about 100 Km from Madurai, Tirumurthi Falls at Udumalaipet in Coimbatore District, and Silver Cascade Falls at Kodaikanal. Recently I was reading a serial story in local popular Tamil weekly Megazine ‘Ananda Vikatan’ about a waterfalls known as […]
There is another way to witness Tarawera Waterfalls. By far the best way is via water taxi across Lake Tarawera. This deposits you at the lakes outflow where a good track broadly follows the river until the river begins to vanish. It is wonderfull geology and delightful native forest. Eventually you descend the cliff face […]
Not high or forceful, but I like it.
In 1989 I saw beautiful Svöðufoss waterfall and was amazed. I shot a photo and here it is.
Werrikimbe is a national park that borders on the Oxley Wild Rivers National Park in N.S.W. but it gets a minimum amount of visitors and it helps if you’ve got a 4WD though it’s not essential. I had visited 20 years previously and been impressed with a short walk I did so I returned to […]
Pronounced “tyre” these falls are but one of a multitude that dispense their waters into the Oxley Wild Rivers National Park and ultimately into the Macleay River that runs through Kempsey. These falls are not anywhere near as popular as the nearby Apsley, nor are they as dramatic. No, these suit the keen bushwalker who […]
It was many years ago when I was first taken to this remote spot. You have to go through private property and then through almost trackless national park to get there. The drop into the Macleay Wild Rivers National Park is impressive. People have abseiled down the side on rare occasions and others have walked […]
