And God Created Waterfalls. . . .

The greatness of some of the waterfalls makes us think of ourselves as  being a tiny part of the universe.

Think of our life as a waterfall; it may come crashing down at some point, it may have it’s ups and downs, but in the end, it will continue to flow.DSCF9503A

  1. When I saw your previous post of the Jiulong Waterfall, it reminded me of other waterfalls that are famous in the western world, like Niagara and the Victoria Falls – and then you post this lovely photo of the Victoria Falls. It seems that taking good photos is a family thing too?

    • Hi, my brothers, my father-in-law, my sister-in-law like taking photo. My wife also is more and more into photography too; for some of her photos, I think they are better than mine! Thank you 🙂

  2. Ahhh the Devils cataract … know this area so well… coming from Rhodesia and having spent 4 months in Vic Falls on a job… wonderful feature of nature…

    • Hi annetbell, there is no problem of using my photo/ text in your blog if you would provide a link back to my blog. Thanks so much for the nominations which I understand are important awards. I have decided not to pursue or accept any nomination / award during my retirement and for this reason, I have already turned down all similar awards. Knowing that my blog is read in many places of the world (over 160 countries) is already my biggest reward. Thanks for enjoying my posts and thinking of me for the nominations. Regards, Michael

  4. I opened this page and inadvertently said “WHOA!” while scrolling down, down, down the waterfall. Love this – hope I get to see the real thing one day 🙂

  5. Your words are so insightful. Water is my element. All things water I feel apart of. Waterfalls I do believe move me this most. I love the sound of falling water, so I would have to include rain in that group. 🙂 Jk

    • Hi, the sound of falling water can be very soothing. I also like sound from the gentle lapping of waves on the shore. Have a great week 🙂

  6. Michael – I would so repetitious if I said that your work is wonderful or beautiful, which of course are both accurate as far as they go … but I am never early enough in the praise parade to say something so simple and get away with it. This time magnificent, gorgeous, breathtaking and mystical – equally applicable words that get closer to my feelings about your work and, specifically today, to the combination of your words with your sister-in-law Jennie’s photo – have been gobbled up by others in their well-justified praise of your joint work. While I could wrack my brain in search of that perfect word that would properly convey the admiration that I have for your talents (and now your sister-in-law’s as well), I decided to fall back on a word I used a great deal in my youth when something was really great or wonderful (or person or a thing had those qualities). That word was “nifty” and I think that that your work (and now it seems the work of your sister-in-law) is just nifty. Thanks for sharing it.
    Regards,
    Rob

    • Hi Rob, I like your word “niffy”. This is the first time I have heard of this word. As English is my second language, actually, I have to check it out to see what it means – I like that. Many thanks for your continued support and for the time you send me this comment which is a big encouragement to me. Wish you a lovely week 🙂
