Hi Peter
another great view, I would suggest to step forwards 1 or 2 meters to have a free space as fg but most probably you would no more be alive to show us these nice pictures ;-)

Hi Peter,
Perfect picture.
It is exallant place.

Interesting how water appears to go in slow motion down a waterfall. Maybe, together with the beauty, that is what fills one with a sense of relaxation. Yet another of your beautiful images of waterfalls. Absolutely nothing that I do not like. Just beautiful.

PS: Do you perhaps know where the name Mac Mac comes from? Wait - have looked it up in "New Dictionary of South African Place Names" by Peter E Raper (P.216, 2004): "Named after the gold mining village nearby, which was so called either after the MacClaughton brothers, said to be the first diggers, or because a list of diggers handed to President TF Burgers contained so many Scottish names that he called it Mac-Mac."

Hello Peter,
Very beautiful photo of this waterfall in splendid natural colours and a good composition.

That is also one of the most dramatic waterfalls in that region Peter! Mplumalanga is the place every tourist should visit when came to SA! Very spectacular, very beautiful!

A good one from your archives Peter. You did well to include the whole waterfall.

Hellow Peter,
A powerful image well captured and presented.I can just imagine the noise as it crashes to the bottom.

Hi Peter,
I've been there so many times and still it is so beautiful. Beautiful image. Very well done and thanks for sharing.

Hello Peter,
My wife (Rosie) loves waterfalls and I must say this is a real duzzie. I could only imagine the roar you must have heard from this vantage point. Nicely composed shot with good detail and attractive coloration.
