Waterfall by Chris McKay

This morning I just had to share this stunning photograph from New Zealand photographer Chris McKay.

He writes:

Alexander Falls is a waterfall on Madeley Creek, a tributary of Callaghan Creek in the Callaghan Valley area of the Sea to Sky Country of southwestern British Columbia, Canada. The falls are located just below a bridge on the access road to Callaghan Lake Provincial Park, at the head of the valley, which lies to the west of the resort town of Whistler.

The falls consist of three drops that total up to 141 feet (43 m) in total. The falls are about 40 feet (12 m) wide.

Feel free to share but no other use without prior written consent.

  1. This is a great image. I would love to have taken it and liked even more to have seen the original before he pulled the exposure.
    It is stunning.

    1. Adrian - He's recently returned from Africa and keeps posting the most wonderful images since...

  2. The water looks like white satin.

    1. It does YP! That is a perfect description.

  3. As a work of art I love it. As a picture of a waterfall I do not.

    1. That's an interesting statement Geeb. I wish we had an hour to tease apart the difference.
