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 […]
‘an hour later found us in the only pasture in the Vetti mountains, or so it seemed. We all sat down for a rest and the sun came out. It was lovely. I took off my cycle cape and we set off again. The scenery was : trees, grass, streams. What a change! We followed […]
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
Had my honeymoon on Taveuni in 1999. My wife and I loved it, all of it: the scuba diving, the people, the Garden Island feel, the short golf course, the hiking, everything, but most of all, we will never forget our hike around Bouma National Park, and the swim into the lower Tavoro falls. It […]
What is the waterfall in the American version of The Vanishing?
This is one of the most beautiful fossen i Norge. Maybe the most beautiful one. I hope you will be able to come back and to watch it better. Charles
Hello, I think the parasite which is very dangerous for the salmons is GYRODACTYLUS SALARIS. If I remember, I will take many pictures of the place and I send them to you, on the summer . Take care all of you and an Happy New Year. Charles
I visited Yosemite National Park on 5th September 1965! I recall the absolute serenity and the breath taking beauty! The scenic beauty and waterfalls were fantastic and I remember laying myself down on one of the rocks at a distance and watching the the fall of water…It was heavenly and I lay there, for how […]
I need to know this for my homework.(GR5)
A long while ago I visited El Sapo Falls, not knowing what was in store for me, it was the most magical place and provided me with memories I will never forget. The Mosquitos were huge however and staying at Ureyen (I think thats how it is spelt) was a fantastic experience too but the […]
Visiting and collecting (bagging) waterfalls has been my hobby over the past 16 years… over 1000 and counting. I enjoy the research (how to get there), the execution (getting there by car and foot), the few momments taking in the beautiful waterfalls and their surroundings and the photo work, recording and scrapbooking involved. Most of […]
I have been twice to Iguassu and can say without a doubt it is the most beautiful and exciting Falls to visit that I have ever seen. It is easily accessible by place to the City of Foz do Iquassu and can be viewed from several vantage points…my favorite was when we went up river […]
We visited Glymur last summer, with our two teenage daughters. After a beautiful but challenging hike, we got tired of listening to older daughter’s complaining. We saw the falls, but didn’t make it to the top of the falls. We’re going back this summer, without kids, and WILL make it to the top. Amazing beauty.
That’s a wonderful collection of photos of the Niagara Falls. Been there a couple of times. Can’t help but be in awe of the falls – especially as seen from the “Maid of the Mist” Also the American Falls up close is awesome. It however does get really crowded during the holidays.
I think it is a crime that they have not kept the falls in a more natural state. The falls are an amazing sight, no doubt, but it is too bad they have built so many hotels, casinos and other structures around this natural wonder.
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 […]
My boyfriend was hiking with several of his friends in November 1975. The water at that time was deep and the waterfall was flowing. He went to jump over the falls and lost his footing on the moss and went down the falls facing outward. He landed face down in the water and broke both […]
