Mosi-oa-Tunya


Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge

This is our last week of the Five Elements/Seasons series and today our topic is Water or the Season of Winter.

The World’s largest sheet of falling water, the Victoria Falls (or Mosi-oa-Tunya, meaning The Smoke that Thunders in Tokaleya-Tonga) is listed as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World – and it falls almost in my front garden!

  3. I have always wanted to visit Victoria Falls…in a few weeks my dream will come true…all being well. And I will know that it is not a fire I can see in the distance 🙂 A beautiful site and fantastic photos.
