My second Photograph of this place...........

I had captured this picture of "Berlin Falls" in Graskop area, Mpumalanga, South Africa. It was very cloudy day.

* The Falls were named by German miners during the Gold rush, who named location after towns and places in their home country. Berlin falls was named for the capital of Germany.

* If you are in the Blyde River Canyon area on the Panorama Route in Mpumalanga, then don't miss the Berlin Falls. Shaped like a huge white Candle, the falls flow through a natural sluice before cascading down into a deep pool.

* The falls are on the Sabine River and fall 80 metres (260ft) dumping into circular basin flanked by red cliffs.

* The falls have the shape of a candle with the first short drop the wick, and the remaining, broader drop being the candle body.
