Came across this site today: http://www.worldwaterfalldatabase.com/

Thought it might be of interest to some.

After a quick review, that website currently has very little information on Europe.

In my region, none of the falls are mentioned but I still find the database useful and hopefully, it will grow in the future.

I'm sure they'd appreciate suggestions through their Contact page.  I have no idea who/how many people are behind this... they may just be 'swamped'.  Wink

I have this before.  Just because its a waterfall does not mean it will make a good photograph.  The angle, the flow, the light, the light angle and its surrounding will either make it or break it.  Take the time to do the research. 

All to often I see too much water in one spot that will not make the composition look fantastic.  Do some research and type into the internet and see if you can find some snapshots of it and that should help you.

And for God sake use a framing card!!!!!!!

Secret Garden - Mossbrae Falls, California - good use of the foreground flowers.

... the others I don't recognise.

 the damn, elk have eaten all the dogwoods.  My friend Joseph Holmes said the dogwoods are all eaten down to 1-2 feet tall.  I usually only find places that are not recognized.  T

The Mossbrae Falls are a bit too well known...

This is not nearly as well known or accessible...

Thank you Tim and Dreed for posting these. I much prefer good shots of "intimate" waterfalls like these to typical views of "famous" falls.

Each of these is on a different continent...

The last of these three photographs is at a waterfall where I nearly lost my life trying to shoot it. Luckily for me, the only outcome was a lost walking stick, dirty walking pants, a few scrapes, a story to tell and a few minutes of shaking after I'd recovered to a situation where my life wasn't in danger.

If anyone out there is looking at these and thinking about getting out and exploring, I heartily recommend doing so, but be alert to the fact that as you try to access less well known (and therefore less photographed) waterfalls, it is also likely that the danger to your life will increase as waterfalls are generally not located in the most accessible terrain and therefore there will be no trails or platforms.
