Zambezi attracts many people who like to experience new challenges, like Victoria Falls and going as close to the thundering water as possible, one of the roughest and safest white water rafting in the World and many other attractions not talking about different culture of local people. I wanted to show the mighty power of the nature in comparison with the tiny boat, which if going some meter furthre would flip over and expose its crew to life threatenning experience. This is the Power of Nature and our everlasting will to uncover it and make it working for us.

Great capture of the Victoria Falls over the Zambezi .. as it gives us a very good POV of how strong the nature is and why it commands respect.
Thanks for sharing ... cheers ... sarju

Nice picture. A good POV, risky to the Camera, I guess ..

It must be a hell of a experience!!!
I love waterfalls, but I guess I would'n have the corage to do that!

You can feel the raw power of nature here. It is so wonderfully composed with great visual impact. Great shot Michael.

Very impressive POV! At Victoria Falls, I guess it becomes hard to frame this picture, as you have so much water you can put into the frame, and it becomes a matter of choice on how small you want the boat to look. Great Job!

Cette photo aurait pu s'appeler également la plus grande douche du monde, ou encore, comment prendre une douche totale en une fraction de seconde. Il faut se montrer humble face à la nature quand on voit l'embarcation par rapport à cette montagne d'eau.

It is the first time that I see the fall from the downside!

the power of the nature and we are just little men in front of her. This is really nice.

Un-be-lievable presentation!!! So impressive!
It reminds me painting by Ajvazovsky "Tenth Wave", that I grew up with.

This picture takes my breath away. The composition shows us the small, frail size of humanity next to nature. The fact that you could not capture the entire length of the falls lends mystery to the shot. Very well done!

Excellant enviornment. Well done.

An impressive shot and a wonderful captured moment. Wet wet wet was my first thought.

challenging indeed. Very powerful illustration of the feeling those people probably had in front of such power. The compo is impressing but it lacks a bit sharpening.

Wonderful shot/POV. No doubt about the power of the falls. The "little" boat is insignificant in the sceme of things. I would like to see the top of the falls so I can get a complete comparison of boat and falls.

This is a fantastic composition in the vertical canvas which befits the title...
Well done (ignoring the fact that the image appears to be a bit soft)...
