In all my years of photography this is the closest I ever came to actually taking a shot of a waterfall. It was a shot taken from the the top of the Cleveland Dam looking down the spillway of the dam.

The Cleveland Dam is a concrete dam at the head of the Capilano River in North Vancouver, British Columbia that holds back Capilano Lake. Part of the Capilano River Regional Park, it is not used for generating hydroelectricity, but rather for storing a portion of the Lower Mainland's drinking water. Construction was started in 1951 and completed in 1954.

This shot was taken in August 1983. A Google will reveal images of this spillway taken on either a wet day or dry day. Quite a dramatic difference.

Nice view Jan! I like the shape of the water in the outer chanals and the rushing white water as it splits to 3 runs also the reflection in the pool is good well seen
Best regards

I like the way the water has reproduced with the rushing water compared with the slower water in the outside channels. Your viewpoint looks a little precarious !!

Excellent Jan, it made me realise I could have used a photo of the hydro dam just out of the city. A long way down there and quite scary,
