FOWChallenge-Rapid

~~~~~

rapid

a fast-flowing and turbulent part
of the course of a river.

The Waikato River which

drains New Zealand’s,

Lake Taupo…

…forms a narrow gorge through which

water rapidly passes over Huka Falls

Tuesday-PC-Wk176-Fall

~~~~~~

Considering we are at the opposite end

of the seasonal roundabout,

most of my photos, this week,

are of waterfalls

Because Victoria Falls was mentioned in the challenge,

my first image is of Victoria Falls.

I believe the stream of water in the foreground

is known as Devil’s Kitchen (not certain) and this

is erosion taking place to prepare a new site

for Victoria Falls.

As is visible in this photo there at least

five other sites of the Victoria Falls.

 

Hopkins Falls.

At 90 metres wide it is one of Victoria’s widest falls.

Athabasca Falls

near Jasper, Alberta,

Canada.

 

Maligne Gorge Falls

also found in

Jasper National Park,

Canada.

 

 

Rhine Falls in Switzerland.

 

Huka Falls,

near Taupo,

New Zealand

 

 

 

So, while the northern hemisphere is taking Autumn/Fall images,

these were taken in our garden just before

sunset on Tuesday September 3, 2019.

Leucadendron…a member

of Protea family.

Not only are these Snow Drops,

but today Google says they are

Giant Snow Drops.

A memory from the farm.

 

Not sure if these a ex-farm flowers or

purchases made since moving.

However, I first saw the Winter Rose

after I said ‘I do!’

A catch up post.

Falling water in Banff’s…

 

…Cascade Gardens.

The ‘fall’ may not be any higher than the

Cascade Garden falls, however,

Huka Falls a few minutes out of Taupo,

New Zealand wins, hands down,

for power and quantity.
