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 hope you have enjoyed viewing these stunning photographs of waterfalls – some falls appear more than once but can look quite different depending on the angle, weather conditions, etc.
