20 Beautiful Examples of Waterfall Photography

There are at least 12 different types of waterfall, including cascade, horsetail, punchbowl and frozen. Niagara Falls and Victoria Falls are both segmented block waterfalls, and Angel Falls is a cascade waterfall.

There are thousands of waterfalls around the world, and if you are standing beside them, each one is beautiful in its own right, and every waterfall, from the correct position, with the right weather circumstances and a camera in the right hands, can be the subject of a beautiful photograph.

Here are 20 beautiful photographs of waterfalls – Niagara Falls and Victoria Falls are both represented here, but the others, although lesser-known are just as photogenic.

I love using and learning Photoshop, and I also enjoy creating resources to share with the world. I am at my happiest when I have free time to further explore all that Photoshop has to offer and learn more about its powerful built-in tools. I hope people enjoy either using or learning from my free resources, and welcome any hints and tips - and of course, if you would like to offer a free resource on this site, please don't hesitate to contact me (top right of the page).
