THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-Zoom-In-Zoom-Out

 

 

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.

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Scale

Today I bring you a big, strong, six-foot plus, fisherman.

victoria-falls_0357Right now that looks like a really cool spot to be.

 

 

victoria-falls_03571Still looks like a good spot to be on a hot day.

 

 

victoria-falls_03572White water?  Maybe not so good…but cool.

 

 

victoria-falls_0358In case anyone is wondering why I have included a water fall,

zoom in on the photo.

Our fisherman is still there…

just dwarfed by the size of Victoria Falls.
