August Waterfall by LinRuPhotography August Waterfall by LinRuPhotography
I recently visited Blyde River Canyon in Mpumalanga, South Africa.

I found this epic waterfall close to a hiking trail and decided to investigate, but there was no proper shooting angle through the trees - I saw a small island at the waterfall's feet and realized that it might be my only chance, as the island will be a distant memory when the summer rains come down. I braved the cold water with my bare feet and had an awesome time looking for some compositions under an overcast sky...

Great composition, very soft, balanced light and long exposure combined into this great photograph. Your efforts to get to that island weren't in vain :)

I normally connect South Africa with deserts. This one is an amazing shot.

South Africa is a medley of biomes, rather strange the different landscapes you find here
