water(fall) and sun rays

By bliba  
The waterhole
The Palfau Waterhole Gorge is one of the most impressive karst phenomena in Austria. In the midst of a steep and extremely difficult to access rock face on the southern slope of the Hochkar is the mighty spring cave. This giant karst spring is the largest water-bearing cave in Styria and, at 71 metres, the fourth deepest siphon in Austria.

Along five waterfalls, narrow canyons and rocky hollow basins, a climbing system with wooden stairs and bridges leads through the gorge to the Palfau waterhole. Unexplored subterranean watercourses, the force of the water that forms limestone rocks into gorges and caves, gives an idea of the mysterious power of the element water.

thanks for looking

Not a place to get too close to the edge. What a long ways down. And a tiring climb up by the sounds of it. Lovely light on this particular day. So worth getting too.

A well worth climb up all these stairs, and other obstacles to reach the viewpoint and take this picture. However, it would sound as if you would have to be fit and able to reach this place, so, alas, not for me. I might add a very good notes as an intro'!
