Horizontal Falls, Large opening, Western Australia by 

This image is taken as we approached the larger of the two falls at Horizontal Falls. As the name implies it is the water rising and falling horizontally as opposed to vertically that created this phenomonum. It only happens at two places in the world, this being one of them. It is created by the huge tidal range in this area and the speed at which the tides rise and fall. Look at my other images in this series for more information.

I am a fine art photographer who has found that nature can be very healing. Many people are unable to get out and spend time in nature, so my goal is to bring nature to them. “Bringing the healing of nature, from the outside in”. So now wherever you are or whatever you do, you too can benefit from natures healing. Whether it be for yourself or as a gift, buy an image from my healing art collection and see the joy it will bring to your life.

    I’d hate to say it… but that has immense hydro-power possibilities.. .

  • Shame on you:)) They are trying to get it heritage listed probably for that very reason. It is a unique and awesome display of natures power in a positive way.

    Would you accept underwater turbines? :)

  • lol, you’d have to speak to the locals, but probably a good idea for some of the nearby locations.

    Very nicely done Julia. I imagine you were on the jet boat and that just after you took this the young skipper called out “Hold tight” and promptly went into a gut wrenching turn and you were convinced he was headed straight for the cliffs!. Fabulous place isn’t it?
    Take care

    It is, you were right about the warning to hang on, but the guys we were with we’re pretty careful. The other tour operator had their license suspended after they hit the wall three times! I think it would have to be the ultimate job for young hoon drivers!!!
