I have captured this picture of Mac Mac Falls in Sabie area, Mpumalanga, South Africa. Mac Mac is halfway between Graskop and Sabie. Terrible condition I faced here when Sunlight was just on my lens and I had nothing to do. Here i needed a perfect exposure to illuminate the george.

*South Africa boasts a unique cluster of lovely waterfalls in the stunningly scenic province of Mpumalanga, one of the most dramatic is the 65m Mac Mac Falls named for the feisty Scottish miners who panned for gold here in the 1870s gold rush. The twin falls tumble into the Mac Mac River below.

*The Mac Mac Falls - a national monument - belong to a cluster of lovely waterfalls in Mpumalanga's Sabie area, on the stunningly scenic Panorama Route.

*It's twin falls plunge dramatically 65m into the george bellow as rainbows dance over the white spray.
