Monochrome Wednesday – Milford Sound Waterfall


Yes, it is the third post on Milford Sound, though this one is more about a waterfall there and thought it would be a good subject for Monochrome Wednesday. There are two photos, I couldn’t pick just one.

Monochrome Wednesday the waterfall

Monochrome Wednesday – Milford Sound Waterfall

I knew when we first approached this waterfall that I would get some great photos. I especially liked the pattern that was being created at the bottom. Not to mention how powerful it seemed with all the water coming down. Apparently, this is one where the water comes off a glacier. I don’t know if I should be worried about the amount that is there.

They told us a story that if you got some of the spray on you then when you woke up the next morning you would look 10 or 20 years younger. I can tell you, that I did get the spray on me, but when I woke up I looked the same. Sadly, it isn’t a true story. Okay, I didn’t really believe it, but a girl can hope, can’t she?

There were many people on the boat rushing to get that spray on them and there was a lot of it. Waterfalls that are running that fast always have a lot.

You can see the pattern in this one a lot more. It was really incredible and just spread out from the bottom. Sometimes you know when you see something that it could be the hero of the photo.

Over the years I’ve seen a lot of waterfalls, but I have never seen a pattern like this at the bottom before. As I was watching it I knew I had to get lots of photos of it. They have turned out really well in Monochrome.

Joining in

It would be great if you would like to participate, especially if you are enjoying the monochrome challenge again. If you want to contribute there is a Facebook groupTPM Photos which you can join and share your images. Of course, if you are blogging no reason why you can’t post your own. I like this challenge and it is nice to be thinking in monochrome again.
