Photo101 : Day 3 – Water


Even though my star sign is Capricorn, the mountain goat, I enjoy being near water and listening to rippling streams on a lazy summer’s day, or waves crashing on the shore on a stormy day.

These are some of my favourite water photos.   The first one is a very photographed place of natural beauty here in Ireland, the Lakes of Killarney, which is a must see for visitors to this country.

And on the other side of the world, in Zimbabwe, no visit would be complete without a visit to Victoria Falls, and the mighty Zambezi River.   This gorge  is called the Devil’s Cataract, and the falls here only have a drop of 60 meters, as opposed to the main falls which are over 100m deep.    Even so, I wouldn’t like to go over the cliff into the ‘boiling pot’ below.

    They’re both wonderful but I think The Lakes of Killarney is my favourite. I love the moodiness – veryy atmospheric.

    Well-photographed or not, the Lakes have every right to be admired the world over. They are stunning. (A bit disloyal to Cork but the People’s Republic has its beauties as well).
