Cascades of Villaluz.

Leaving of Tapijulapa, in a journey of five minutes in motor boat, you arrives to Villa Luz; when disembarking, a sidewalk of 1.5 kms is continued.

The current of water comes from the "Cave of the Blind Sardine" 'Cueva de la Sardina Ciega', forming a splendid fall.

This picture is a small part of the natural falls of the water coming from this cave, the superior fall it is of approximately 3 meters and the inferior fall is approximately 6 meters.

Very nice Ninfa, good sense of movement of the water, there is a great deal of light and dark here and I htink you have done very well indeed to get this shot. I wish I could stand next to that fall.

Hi Ninfa
These are very nice falls. Water canbe shot slow, medium or fast. When you shoot fast, you freeze the water droplets, when you shoot a sloe SS, you created a flowing affect like cotton wool. The thing is to find a shutterspeed that works with a specific water fall or stream. Here, because there is very little sunlight, I assume a long SS, hence the white watwe in the front. Thake your reading off the green leaves, recompose, and shoot, it should give you the right exposure.

Hi Ninfa this I think is the best of your Cave of thr Sardine trip, it is well seen in the way the water comes over the lip of the fall and then crashes down in the shelf at the bottom, this is the weakest bit the water here is slightly over exposed, very dificult when the surrounding are so dark.

Hola Ninfa ;-) A great tribute to the power of nature with this view of the impressive waterfall. The strong downpour is very well conveyed, and the green colors around are quite pleasing. I think given the light conditions you had, the exposure result is good. Thanks for sharing!

Good photo water in motion. You almost get a sense of the noise you likely heard while taking this pic. Very fresh photo.
