It wasn’t until a tunnel was built in 2004 that the residents of Gásadalur had an easy path to and from their home. At the time, the village—perched above this iconic waterfall on Denmark’s Faroe Islands—had all of 16 residents. Now that the village is accessible by car, and not just via an arduous hike or horseback ride, that number has risen to 18 residents.
Wait…so there’s actually a national park somewhere on Earth that uses the word “Basalt” in its real name and this is the first I’ve heard of it? I feel disappointed in myself that it took this long to learn that.

Kilt Rock Waterfall by Vieri Bottazzini Via Flickr: An impressive waterfall and a difficult one to photograph well when the light is low, Kilt Rock Waterfall on the east coast of the Isle of Skye is a sight to behold. Kilt Rock Waterfall looks its best bathed in the soft, pastel early morning pre-dawn light.
Shot with the Pentax 645Z and Pentax 28-45mm f/4.5.

Epupa Falls, Namibia. The Epupa Falls are created by the Kunene River on the border of Angola and Namibia, in the Kaokoland area of the Kunene Region. The river is 0.5 km wide and drops in a series of waterfalls spread over 1.5 km, with the greatest single drop being 37 m. The name “Epupa” is a Herero word for “foam”, in reference to the foam created by the falling water. Photo by @javiergarribas (Instagram)
