Went April 11, 2011

Was only flowing at about 20 percent but was still amazing and it is a lot bigger when u see other people standing on the other side. It really puts the size of it in perspective.

Toorongo Falls – April 2011

On Sunday the 10th of April 2011, I packed up the photo gear into the car and made the trek to Noojee to photograph these iconic falls, taking in the surrounding landscape and the Noojee trestle bridge and other waterways also. I was not dissapointed. The river was in full flow. Normally I’d wade in […]

Amphitheatre Falls – April 2011

I recently, on the spur of the moment, packed up the car one morning with my photo gear and hit the road to Noojee and surrounding areas with the intention of photographing Toorongo and Amphitheatre falls and the Toorongo river. After recent rains, I was not dissapointed. Normally I’d wade into the flow to get […]

Please help identify waterfall

Please help my family identify this waterfall! My Great Uncle Jerry was a fighter pilot in WWII and he loved to take photos. This is one of his photographs. I have always been drawn to this photo and have not been able to identify the location. My Great Uncle Jerry was shot down in Northern […]

Blackstar Canyon – Hidden falls of Orange County

About a year ago, I was given a newspaper article describing these hidden falls in Orange County. The article itself did not specify the exact location, so I did some hunting online. Based on random websites and blogs, I managed to calculate the directions to this spot. Let me just say that this was NOT […]

Highway 39 is reopened

Caltrans has reopened the highway after being closed for nearly 10 years due to extensive fire damage (Curve Fire) and then the 2005 flooding. Access to Lewis Falls is difficult due to the inability for volunteers to get in to the area to maintain the trail leading to the falls. In that video you can […]

Nojoqui Falls Is Just Beautiful!

I’ve been living in Santa Barbara for 3 1/2 years. A photographer friend of mine invited me to go with her to Nojoqui Falls one afternoon, so off we went! It was a beautiful day; not too hot. The hike to the waterfall is very easy and not too long. The base of the falls […]

King George Falls is the Best

King George Falls in the North Kimberley between December and June is easily Australia’s most spectacular waterfall. With twin drops of over 100m it is enormous. It is like 2 Jim Jim Falls together. I’ve seen both and it is no contest.

Only Seen One…

I think you have a wonderfull site, and as a New Zealander I really liked to see your choices for our top 10. Alas I have only seen one during my travels and that was the Huka Falls. Sadly some people lacking in intelligence thought they could go swimming. The corpses were found some days […]

San Antonio Falls With Snow

My wife and I are fairly new to visiting waterfalls, as we just started at the beginning of the year. We’ve been to several so far, and we love it! A few weeks ago we decided to check out San Antonio Falls. It had just snowed over the weekend, and for some reason I wasn’t […]

Face of big cat (panther?) in waterfall

It’s probably impossible to ever find out, but if you can’t help me with this, no one can… When I was a little girl, my parents once watched a movie in which suddenly the face of a big cat appears in a waterfall. This gave me my one and only nightmare till now. It must […]

Driving up to the snow

Me and a friend were driving up through the 33 to see some snow because snow level had dropped a lot and hadn’t been in the snow for a few years so we went. He showed me a place where he got dropped off for a hike to go through Sespe Creek into Filmore, and […]

Stuart William Walker

Sadly I only have bad news on the falls. When I was a kid of eleven back in 1972, my best friend Stuart Walker was trying to climb down at Morialta Falls, he fell and died instantly. Stuart is buried at Athelstone Cemtetery in Adelaide, South Australia.

Forest Falls more than just Big Falls

There is a lot of unknown in the valley of the falls. First, when you turn off the hwy is the Monkey Face Falls with the profile rock of a monkey head. The falls is normally a trickle except for heavy rains and snow melt. The best part of Big Falls is going past the […]

What’s the first waterfall ever formed?

What’s the first waterfall ever formed?

Cascade d’Anglard

The Cascade d’Anglard is in France, in Auvergne region, at Besse-en-Chandesse. You can see it with a short hike of 20 min. The Waterfall is well-signed.

Getting Lost

I enjoyed watching the waterfall, though there was not much water on the day I went there. It took me almost four hours to drive there from Sydney, which was not a good experience on that day. The reason could be that I possibly followed the wrong route I knew from the map attached above. […]

2 Years Later

I visited Steavensons Falls on a recent photography excursion to the Marysville area in Jan 2011. Last time I was up this way the falls were closed to the public due to fire damage and the inherent dangers. Now they’re open, but lack some of the ferny green grandeur that they once had.


I like your explanations so can u do one for gorges and add some pictures too? Thanks a lot and keep up the good work! 😀

Native East Tennesseean

This is not waterfall-specific, but I am pretty sure that the Grand Canyon is not even close to the most-visited US National Park. Unless things have changed, that would be the Great Smoky Mountains NP, which straddles the TN/NC border and is about 45 minutes from my house. It has more than twice as many […]
