Looking down a waterfall

The trails at La Paz Waterfall Gardens get very close to the waterfalls, including this trial that allows visitors to stand right next to where the water rushes down and crashes to the pool below.

You can tell that the rain the fed this waterfall was very recent, as there is a slight, darker hue from soil runoff in the left top of the photo.

The power of this small waterfall illustrates how Costa Rica, a country of about 4 million people, can get almost all of its electricity from clean, renewable hydro power.  Costa Rica is on track to be the world's first carbon neutral country within about 10 years.

Today is Sunday, so we have new photos posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.  This week we are showing some additional photos of the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca, Morocco.  Two weeks ago we showed the main prayer hall and the exterior facade.  This week we are showing the basement fountain/feet washing area and some of the people enjoying a visit to the mosque.

Wow, here is a lot of water!

I think it might be just a bit scary to stand here looking down.

I like the movement in this shot.

Wow. I've never seen anything like this in CR. A little more intimate than Iguazu, which I know you have visited.

This is quite a view from the top of the falls. Amazing you can get such a shot.

What a fabulous perspective! Love this series of jungle/frog shots. My favourite habitat to explore.
