[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Victoria Falls is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world. It's situated on the Zambesi river and constitutes the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. It's 108 m high and twice the height of Niagara Falls. While not the highest or widest, it is the waterfall that has the greatest flow of water. I've seen Iguazu and Niagara, but Victoria is where you get the wetest!
David Livingston is believed to have been the first European to view the falls in 1855. I can imagine how he must have felt.... stupified and grateful to have seen such splendor.

Hi Michael

I can feel the power of the water. Love the spray on the right hand side The leaves at the top frame the photo well, but I feel you could have included more on the right for the same reason.

Hi Michael,
I have taken many photos from that same spot and can still hear the power of the falls by looking at your image. A breathtaking view it is and a well captured moment. I have also seen these falls almost dry with trickles of water. A great image of Mosi - oa - Tunya, as the locals call her.
