Do you love waterfall photography? If the answer is yes, you are going to love this post.

Capturing pictures of waterfalls is a challenging task. Since the water is always running, you have to get the shutter speed and position of your camera just right. If you want to capture the waterfall as a still shot, you are going to have to use a very fast shutter speed (less than 1/30s). However, if you want to show the moving effect of waterfall in your photographs – you will use a relatively slower shutter speed (some photos below have a shutter speed of more than 15 minutes).

What slow shutter photo does is, it makes the water dreamy and blurry which depicts the moving effect of water. Below we have collected some big-time photographs of waterfall that you will just love.

The showcase of waterfall photographs we have here is the most extensive you will find online. We have tried to include some of the best photographs of waterfalls taken across the globe. The photos of waterfalls taken at night look outstandingly gorgeous.

    Amazing these pictures are truly beautiful. Thank You So much, these pictures are worth as much as their natural places in the world. I hope they will be around long enough to visit a few.

  7. One of the very most useful pieces of information I give to new customers is about web-site functionality. You will find so many agencies out there seeking to get ranked, but their websites tend to be rubbish. You should make several improvements to get positioned and stay ranked.
