Specially for Leon

Don't mean to hijack, but Thought I'd try and make Leon happy, as he said he
likes waterfalls. The chunk sticking up near centre in the second image is the size of a four bedroom house.

Glad you like them Leon; Iguassu Falls at the conjunction of Brazil, Paraguay,
and Argentina. Over 200 separate cataracts, 4 clicks wide. The tragedy is
that around 30 yrs ago they dammed further upriver for a hydro station, and
in the process submerged an even more impressive falls. Money talks.
Went there in 2006 and sorely disappointed as falls at lowest ebb in 25 yrs; went back in 2009 and
falls at their best in 25 yrs, so happy camper.

Just goes to show you don't need huge volumes of water for a waterfall
to be beautiful.
