[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Rhine Falls are the widest plain waterfalls in Europe. Dettifoss in Iceland has two thirds their width, though twice the height and volume.

The falls are located on the High Rhine between the municipalities of Neuhausen am Rheinfall and Laufen-Uhwiesen, near the town of Schaffhausen in northern Switzerland and close to the German border.
They are 150 m wide and 23 m high.
In the winter months, the average water flow is 250 m³/s, while in the summer, the average water flow is 700 m³/s.
The highest flow ever measured was 1,250 m³/s in 1965; and the lowest, 95 m³/s in 1921.

The falls cannot be climbed by fish, except by eels that are able to worm their way up over the rocks.

hallo Adrian,
Du scheinst öfters in der Schweiz zu sein! Hier zeigst Du uns eine spektakuläre Sicht auf den Rheinfall, den ich nur einmal in meinem Leben gesehen habe! Deine Aufnahme erinnert wirklich an ein Whirlpool. Schönes Licht und herbstliche Farben der Bäume. Schade nur, dass man im Hintergrund die Stromleitungen sieht.
Ein schönes Wochenende!

Energy is flowing in this picture. Great colours!

Hello Adrian, WoW what a shot. Superb work with brilliant ISO. Sharp picture. Ganesh

Hi Adrian!

I have been at this place for several times and I would like to thank you for these souvenirs. The autumnal colours suit the subject very well.

Kind regards


Love this sentence:"The falls cannot be climbed by fish, except by eels that are able to worm their way up over the rocks."
Even EELS will have to be EXTREMELY STRONG WORMS to climb those falls.
BEAUTIFULLY portrayed image.
P.E.R.F.E.C.T.I.O.N!!! You are quite good at this!!!
Mario from COLD Calgary wishing you well.

Superba cascada,mai ales daca esti langa ea.Am fost si eu acolo,demult,si mi-a placut tare.

Hello Adrian,
As I am fluent only in Swedish and English and I don't have a multi-language computer programme I cannot address you in your native language, though I have some knowledge of French and Spanish.
This is a fine capture from your archives, the colours of this waterfall and the fine autumnal colours of the trees in the BG combine in an excellent composition to depict these Rhine Falls.
Tack ska du ha!
Hälsningar från Skåne,

What a view! Great perspective.

Hi Adrian,

The capture of the power of the water fall is an asset to the composition. The trees are framing well the fall. The point of view leads our eyes toward the top of the fall which is giving depth to the composition. The light is enhancing the colors. have a nice day.

Hi Adrian,
Interesting note.Great POV and well framed.You have brought out the power of the water very well in this shot.

Hello Adrian,
spectacular presentation of the Rhine falls. Delightful colour contrast of cool and warm hues in the crisp and clear light of autumn sun, dramatic depth and motion. Thank you!
With best regards,
