Victoria Falls is a spectacular waterfall located in southern Africa on the borders of Zambia and Zimbabwe.
The Zambezi River serves as the fall's water source. With the collective height and width of the falls, it is attributed as the largest sheet of falling water in the world.
The Victoria falls is 1 708 meters wide. It drops between 90m and 107m into the Zambezi Gorge and an average of 550,000 cubic metres of water plummet over the edge every minute.
The name Victoria Falls was given by the Scottish explorer Dr. David Livingstone.
This picture has been taken from the Zambian side of the Falls.

This is an astonishing view of Victoria Falls, the titan of all such falls – dwarfing the Iguazu and the Niagara. Thank you for sharing the photo with is ever present rainbow. The only one of the three I've seen is the niagara, that also has the omnipresent Footbridge between the Cliffs. But there you can see the reason why the spectrum of a waterfalls is always red on top and bluish on the bottom.

A breathtaking capture from Zambia! Now my bucket list for waterfalls adds up. Well chosen POV, although the framing could be worked on a little bit (wanted to see more of the waterfalls) but the inclusion of the rainbow is such a wonderful fixation. Nonetheless, a great contribution to TE! Very nice! Thanks for sharing!
Have a great day,
