Waterfalls all have a peculiar attraction. This particular waterfall was about 75 feet high. It is hard to judge the scale of some landscape objects. This is especially true in the absence of anything with which we are familiar. This particular waterfall is in the jungle of Costa Rica. The challenges of this type of photo are the extreme contrast between the dark shade of the jungle and the bright sunlight. It is also difficult to get far enough away from the waterfall to get the entire objective within the field of view of the camera. To get some perspective, if you look very carefully at the left-hand side of the photo you will see a person hidden in the shade.
