Oh great shot! The pewny little photographers down there certainly show the scale. Although it's higher than Niagra - it's deceptive because of the steps, isn't it? But this angle is quite impressive!!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks Elizabeth, glad those guys were there !

Higher than Niagra....I have been there twice..
This looks massive and the red water is very impressive. Those people make scale. Fabulous shot.
Frank L Croston.: Never been to Niagra, don't need to now..smile Thank you, Astrid.

This might be on my bucketlist.... what a place and that at your fingertips.
Frank L Croston.: We'll take you, Astrid. smile
I would NEVER have guessed the scale of this without those people, Frank, so thank you for including them! WOW.
Frank L Croston.: Much better with the people in there, Ginnie, thanks.

This is a wonderful image!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Ray.
Not a bit like the Lake District!
Frank L Croston.: Well it was wet, Tom. smile
I imagine the sound is pretty impressive too. Cracking shot Frank with the tiny people really giving the scale!
Frank L Croston.: Just a bit, Bill...It needed the people, thanks.

Ah. now I see the height of those falls; much higher than my first thoughts! The people show just the grandeur of this place. It had it been particularly stormy prior to your visit?
Frank L Croston.: Yes the people give its true scale Alan. The heavy flow is due to snowmelt after the last lot we had.
Crikey Frank, the figures really show the enormous scale of this place.
Frank L Croston.: Being there makes you feel very small, Andrew....And damp...smile
I have never seen such a thing as this. Grand Falls, New Brunswick, often has brown water depending on the season but it is clear.
Frank L Croston.: Me either, Mary, spectacular.
I didn't realise the height of this from yesterdays picture, the inclusion of those people makes it quite plain this a big, and beautiful waterfall.
Frank L Croston.: Yes, yesterdays needed something for scale. Oh yes, it's BIG, Brian !
Nature is immense...
Frank L Croston.: Bigger than all of us, Larry!
