Spectacular Waterfalls Around The World

January 19, 2014

The power, drama and majesty of waterfalls make them a natural subject choice for photographers. And with technological innovations seen in GoPro cameras, the lens is able to capture new angles and views like never before. This video of Niagara Falls was posted on the Internet during the summer of 2013 after a photographer used what appears to be a remote-controlled helicopter to capture some spectacular images. Even still photography, like the mystical, black and white photography of Ansel Adams, has rendered some amazing images of the world’s most dramatic waterfalls.

Either way you slice it, though, the sights are simply divine.

Lower Lewis River Falls Washington

Yes, the lake may be found in Washington, an alleged entrance to the much-mythicized northwest passage whose specious existence sent two explorers on their “merry” way across the country in the early 19th century.
