Photographer's Note

Isn't every day we know a (Z)country. haha.
There are many ways to calculated how big is a waterfalls (showing how high it is, how large it is and how many waters it has). Using these three methods we have the three largest waterfalls in the world (the largest no more exist, is under a giant dam and it was located in my state).
Iguassu Falls, Niagara and Victoria Falls are in the exclusive top three and everyone is superior to the other in some aspect.
Victoria Falls are located in the borderline with Zambia and its waters falls in a narrow canyon in a shape of a zigzag. During thousands of years the waters of Zambezi River is cutting the stones and opening another branch of this canyon. Here we can see the point where there are more water and the main stream is opening a new way in the rocks.
Remember I visited the area in the last days of the dry season and the level of the waters was very, very low.

Não é todo dia que a gente visita um país com a letra Z. haha.
Existem muitas maneiras de calcular o tamanho de uma cachoeira e se levarmos em conta a altura, volume de água e largura da cortina de água, chegaremos a conclusão que existem apenas três cachoeiras no páreo. (a maior de todas foi destruída em 1983 e ficava no meu estado).
As Cataratas do Iguaçu, Niagara e as Cataratas de Vitória sõ portanto essas três, no entanto cada uma delas supera as rivais em algum aspecto.
As Cataratas de Vitória ficam na fronteira entre ZImbábue e Zâmbia, o Rio Zambezi fez um estreito canyon em forma de zigue-zague e continua aumentando sua extensão. Vemos aqui onde está o maior fluxo de água e o ponto onde ele escava a rocha abrindo mais uma parte do canyon.
Lembrem-se que eu visitei este local no auge da estação seca e o nível do rio estava muito baixo.
