This is the top two falls that form a single fall below making the entire Hagoromo Falls. I decided to zoom in on the top part for this shot to give a closer view of the beauty of the flowing water and the green trees, not quite visible in the shot of the whole falls.
Hagoromo literally means plumage, but is used also to discribe the long flowing sleeves of a Japanese kimino. This is the falls' name, because they look like a kimono sleeves, especially when you can see the bottom of the falls as well. If you are interested in the full scene take a look at this other photo on my own site in which I used a wider lens.

beautiful image, a nice speed on the shutter and wonderfully framed by the lush green trees.

Good composition to show beautiful waterfall.
EOS gives us green by this hue, but I feel odd it.
White of the waterfall is very beautiful by an appropriate shutter speed.
By the way, Have you got E0S 5D? I found you in the camera magazine CAPA.
