I like Deano's second one.

Iceland is chock full of waterfalls.

This one's like the Giants' Causeway turned upside down.


This is falling into a volcanic ravine beside the old outdoor parliament.


And this is Europe's most powerful (up to 500 tonnes per second falling 44m)

Or a dribble followed by a short drop?

Looks like High Force, Teesdale, England, to me, though no doubt Deano will be along to give us the definitive answer.

Yes, I thought High Force too when I originally saw it.

And I don't think that's too far from the other one which I'm wracking my brains as to where it is.   I think it's in Yorkshire, in the back garden of a pub you have to pay a tiny "waterfall viewing fee" to.   I recall stopping there once when driving home from the Lake District via a scenic route.

Hardraw Force, I think.

I like the effect you get with a long exposure on these sort of shots, the water almost looks like fog or clouds.  Deano's last shot appears to be like that.
Actually, it is rocket science.

Gold stars to everyone - High Force in Teesdale and Hardraw Force in Wensleydale (ish).  Sorry, I wasn't being deliberately enigmatic.

They both claim to be England's highest waterfalls - I think Hardraw Force has the edge, though.  And it's the Green Dragon pub that you have to go through to reach it, for the sum of about a quid, paid at the bar.  It would have been rude not to get a drink at the same time  ;D

Will jave to wait to get some internet access to load up some of mine. At Gullfoss in Iceland, you can get right out to the lip on an undercut cliff. In Eryri, you can get under the road bridge over the Ogwen falls where there is an older bridge contained within the arch. A magical place.
And I did enjoy the waterfalls on the Atherton Tablelands near Cairns.

Great pics...I love blurry water pics, me. :thumbsup:

Going to Iceland is a bit beyond me, so I make do with the NT woodland up the road



Very nearly 2 buckets of water per second crash down to the rocks 3 feet below :)

The Tees has to be quite high in order to get two falls at High Force - normally it's just the left hand main channel that's flowing.

Somewhere I have some snaps of the Krimml waterfall in Austria (Europe's highest).
Never tell me the odds.

Jura's Atlantic coast: Swimming in a small peaty waterfall's plunge pool on the edge of Loch Tarbert.  Taken on a cheapo disposable waterproof camera which sat around in a dive bag for about three years before being developed!

It takes blood and guts to be this cool but I'm still just a cliché.

That geological formation would have been produced by waterflow, right?

Man, that was some river.

I've forgotten the names of these falls but they're near Hood River in Oregon.
We were there last October.
