Waterfalls

Waterfalls are wonderfully photogenic - even if they can become rather over done at times.

As you may have gathered from other posts, my last trip away was marked by more than a bit of rain.  This is, of course, very good for water falls.

The first here is Erskine Falls.  This is a very well known waterfall just behind Lorne.  It takes less than 10 or 15 minutes to walk to the base of the falls, and is very popular. I can see why!

 While I like the "grand" shots of the waterfalls - I think I like the last one best.  I took a number of shots of this scene, and this is the one where I most like the balance between movement and clarity.

We also encountered some unnamed water falls, where recent rain was running off the cliffs around the 12 Apostles and London Bridge.  Somehow, these transient falls seemed more interesting than the named and well known ones with the well beaten paths.




You can find more shots from around the world at Our World Tuesday.  SM

Stewart, these are gorgeous. Just curious, is the bottom part of the corner post missing on this side of the photo? Scary.

Brilliant, pity we don't have such spectacular falls in the UK

I used to sort of "collect" waterfalls, but we haven't walked to one for way too long a time. Too often, it seems like photos don't capture the movement of the water very well -- it looks like milk instead. Your photos all look very much like beautiful rushing falling water and I wish I could take that walk!
