About 10 kilometers out of Sabie one can find the Horseshoe falls. A short walk from parking and picknic area brings one to a cool mountain pool surrounded by large rocks. The Horseshoe Falls are formed by three main falls forming a perfect horseshoe. All this is surrounded by indigenous forest and ferns. The hight of the falls are approx 50 meteres and are truly beautifull

Hi Ben
Another nice fall from the east, and once again, one that can only really be appreciated once one has traipsed up to the falls and see how difficult it is to get a proper shot of the scene!

Netjies Ben. This is a lovely view of a very beautiful place. Good work

Ben, ek geniet jou reeks oor die waterfalle verskriklik baie.

Excellent series and a nice follow up. Whenever I get to a spot like this I can't resist to take a swim.

Vat my volgende keer saam asb! This is beautiful and the setting is perfect. A different technique here could have been to use a slow shutter speed to get soft white water, but then the image would not have felt as "fresh" as it does now. Very well done,

Thanks for posting

I don’t think people appreciate how difficult it is to fit this waterfall into one picture. Very well done! This is a really magical place. But I think I need a new monitor, as a lot of the photos on TN are very dark. The bottom left corner here for instance. I must write that down on my Christmas list! Beautiful crisp clear shot.
