Water is life and is thus always fascinating, especially when it fills all our senses in such unimaginable quantities and with such force as at the Victoria Falls.
When you step out of the rainforest at one of the lookout points and stand still for a while, you will be mesmerized by the tumbling, plunging veils of water that form new patterns and shades of colour as you watch. The thunder of The Falls at high water is so loud that other sounds become inaudible and you are protected from the noise, the bustle and the constant demands of everyday life. At low water you feel the spray on your skin as fine, cooling mist or when the river carries a lot of water, it feels like the rain during a violent thunderstorm that soaks everything in a split second. You can smell the freshness of the water as well as the wet, earthy scent of the rainforest. Even if every facet and every new sight tempts you to photograph it stop for a few minutes and simply do nothing but enjoy the amazing sensations. This wonder of the world is always worth it.
