There are many waterfalls at Springbrook National Park in Southern Queensland, but if I had to pick a favourite it would have to be Twin Falls, a 40 metre drop on the Eastern side of the escarpment. The two waterfalls then cascade further down the mountain, as can be seen to good effect from Canyon […]
A small, but elegant waterfall plunging into a cave just outside the village of Durness on Scotland’s north coast. The cave itself is actually the inside of a cliff which is entered from the beach, where the ocean washes up inside a gorge. The gorge and the seafront alone would be worth the visit, but […]
I wanted to share another picture–this time from above the falls.
This is one of my favorite waterfalls mostly because I can visit often. Sometimes I stop by on my lunch break. When the river is running high, there is considerable spray from the falls. In the winter this produces a localized ice storm. When there is sunshine, there are vivid rainbows. When the river is […]
Eaton Canyon is pretty close to Los Angeles and is a great place to hike. It’s a very good falls with a good hike for about 1.5-2 miles ending at its base. The trail is pretty good and the small streams that you pass through while hiking leaves a pleasant feeling. A group of people […]
Went out to Manoa Falls after work yesterday for the first time since I moved to Oahu (3 years ago). This was a great beginner hike, and we completed the trail in about an hour and a half (including stopping and observing birds and plants and running water). It had been pouring rain all day […]
As a local to the Gosford area, I have been to these falls a few times and seen them with different amounts of water flowing through them. Off the beaten track, you can actually get to the lower falls which has a lovely overhang where you can walk in behind them as my pic will […]
In deepest darkest Africa on the border between Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of Congo lies a superb double waterfall. Next to the rustic village of Kembe with its mud-brick huts and thatched grass roofs, the falls of the same name roar for 24 hours per day breaking the peaceful silence of the […]
Hi Johnny Your website is great for waterfall addicts like myself. Just wanted to mention that the bottom 3 tiers of Kite Kite Falls are the most viewed but have attached a pic of the whole waterfall. There is another 30 metre drop above the triple section and then a series of shallow falls above […]
This hike is in Malibu and is on the website but the pictures don’t exactly show the REAL [Escondido Falls]. From the lower falls you start on a rough trail that requires some moderate climbing or scurrying up the path of steep rocks and dirt. It’s nothing to dangerous though, even borderline easy. Shortly you […]
Having never got there when in lived in South Africa, my wife and I spent a few days at the Kingdom Hotel in early May 2007 on a visit to SA from Australia. The Zambezi was at peak flow and though our viewing was restricted to Devil’s Cataract and the Main Falls it was simply […]
Ahoy! On or about June 1975, on an afternoon helicopter ride with Jack Harter, out of the Kauai Surf Hotel, Na’wili’wili, we were flying west of Kapa’a and heading toward Wai’ale’ale, hoping to go over the ridge of the volcano to Waimea Canyon and on to the Na’Pali Coast area. We hit an incoming squall […]
We would climb up the falls along the crevice to the left of the falls all the way up then over to the chute to the left of the falls and run down the gravel chute. It was so steep it was like running on the moon. One step, then sink into the gravel, then […]
When I first saw this scene, it looked like what I would imagine the Garden of Eden would look like. I too, love waterfall pictures and have taken many pictures of them in the Hawaiian Islands, the western United States and Canada. Roger
My last name is derived from this area of Norway. Foshaug – Fos meaning waterfall and haug meaning hill. My Great-great-great grandfather moved from southern Norway to the Malselv valley in the early 1800’s and built a homestead on the hill northwest of the [Malselv waterfall] – hence the name derivation. I traveled to this […]
I went here in 2005. The views from both sides are breathtaking. Zambia has close ups and rainbows and you get soaked! Make sure you cover your camera with a plastic bag.!! Zimbabwe has great views of the falls in general. On the way there you go over a great bridge, here there is a […]
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.
