[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Technically this shot could be from either Zambi or Zimbabwe. However, as my helicopter lifted off from the town of Livingstone on the Zambian side of the Zambezi river, I chose to post it in Zambia. Mosi Oa Tunya is the local name for Victoria Falls. It means 'The Smoke That Thunders'. Scanned from a photograph.

Hi Steve and Ioana,
Spectacular areial photo. Awesome detail and clarity for a scan, I would love to see the original photo.
great shot,

Hi Steve,
A wonderful helicopter view of this massive falls. It does give this scenery a completely different view. It is very interesting to see the force of the water and what it does over time. I also like the pathway that runs on the opposite of the falls. It has some great vantage points.

Hi Steve&Ioana,
Very interesting PoV, great aerial picture.
Beautiful landscape.
Very nice shot.


A splendid ariel shot of the waterfall,
