Krimmler Waterfalls.......or light is everything

By bliba  


Our holiday started this time in the Austrian mountains. Our hotel was at 1600 m and we had 0 degrees and a little snow .... a day before we drove off we had + 30 degrees .. a pleasant cooling
Krimmler Waterfalls.
Krimmler Waterfalls is a tiered waterfall. The waterfall begins at the top of the Krimmler Ache valley, and plunges downward in three stages. The upper stage has a drop of 140 metres, the middle of 100 metres, and the lowest a drop of 140 metres. The highest point of the waterfall is 1,470 metres above sea level
The Krimmler Ache is a glacial stream whose flow varies greatly with season. Its volumetric flow in June and July is 20,000 m/h (about 5.28 million gallons per hour), while in February it is only 500 m/h (about 0.13 million gallons per hour). The greatest measured flow was on 25 August 1987, when it was 600,000 m/h, or almost 160 million gallons per hour.

After the falls, the river joins the Salzach, which flows to the Inn, then into the River Danube and finally to the Black Sea.

It's very impressive. Visited here when last in Austria - on 08/09/2016, to be exact, looking at the photos I took there! Great set, Oliver, but like especially the lead, can feel the force of the water Smile
