Waterfalls

Challenge #6 in the Art of Earth series. Hosted by luxborealis.
Challenge has finished
Continuing on with our Rivers theme - we can now concentrate on one of the most dramatic aspects of rivers - waterfalls. Again, to avoid images that show only flowing water, images must include at least part of the river bank or left/right side of the waterfall. However, the top edge of the waterfall is not necessary. Please NO HUMAN ELEMENTS in this Art of Earth series!

Second tallest waterfall in Brazil, with a 340m (1115 feet) freefall, its name translated into English is "smoke waterfall". This is due to the fact that since its very tall with a fairly small amount of water, a lot of the water "evaporates" (wind of the valley blows the water up) looking as if it became smoke. During dry season, the water barely reaches the bottom.
