I know I declared last week a tough selection of words.

 However, this week it is the opposite end of the scale.  🙂

Nothing to dramatic about a fisherman

out to feed his family…unless…

the river is a bit wider than the first photo indicated…

and he was only a few metres from a waterfall.


And not just any waterfall,

but what is considered, by some,

to be the largest waterfall in the world



While they are not the widest waterfall

or the highest waterfall,

but with all dimensions taken into account,

including almost the largest flow rate,

they are considered to be

the biggest curtain of falling water in the world.

Surpassing the magnificent Niagara Falls and Iguacu Falls.


Spanning 1,700 metres and varying from

70 to 108 metres in height and listed as one of

UNESCO’s seven natural wonders of the world

it is the ideal place to

‘go fishin’.’  🙂

Nearly forgot to add,

we visited in late September…the dry season

and there was only

the Devils Cataract and the Main Falls

with any quantity of water flowing over.


Thursday’s Special: Zoom-In-Zoom-Out



Some fairly basic 50-year-old objects.

Buckingham Palace was around when I was

in primary school in the fifties.


Guides and research tell us the Colosseum

was completed around 1900 years ago.

The only part of my woolshed that was not ancient

was the roofing on the right side of the gable

and the skillion roof, same side.

They were both removed by the closest thing

to a tornado/hurricane to hit our farm.

And yet it was only strong enough to lift

a pile of leaves which MGW had just swept up

and dump them over the track

when it reached our house

about 100 metres further on.

I know I posted this shot last week, however,

I am fairly certain that it would have

been born before me.
