The magnificent Stirling Falls at Milford Sound.
Stirling Falls is nestled at the base of a mountain called Elephant Trunk which faces another mountain called The Lion. At 151 metres in height, these falls are three times the height of Niagara Falls. Niagara Falls trumps this with its width, however.
In this image, I have presented the base of the falls. The wispy shape of the falling water resembles ghostly figures suspended in animation, and the impact of the spray then creates the illusion of broken glass on the lake. Keen-eyed observers may discern shapes resembling faces, or skulls, in the mist; a tortuous ghostly face screams out in eternal agony as cloaked and hooded faceless figures look on at the spectacle before them.
I got sprayed from head to toe in the process of making this photograph. It was definitely worth the slight discomfort.
