Would you swim on the edge of Victoria Falls?

This is the Devil's Pool on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe at Victoria Falls. It is pretty much in my top 5 of places I WILL go soon.
Bucket List!!!!! Devil's Pool at Victoria Falls (or Mosi-oa-Tunya). In the fall, when the river is at its lowest and slowest, a natural rock retaining wall allows swimmers to safely jump into the pool, float to the edge, and look over the falls without being swept down. #zambia
On the border of Zambia & Zimbabwe lies Victoria Falls, largest sheet of falling water in world. The falls are stunning, awe-inspiring, until you see people enjoying themselves in most incredible feature of the falls-Devil’s Swimming Pool- it's breathtaking. A natural pool formed near the edge of the falls & during the dry months of Sept & Dec, the flow is safe, so people can swim close to the edge, within the pool area. A natural rock wall keeps them from falling into the 360 feet gorge.
Devils Pool, Victoria Falls, South Africa. This pool sits atop the magnificent Victoria Falls in South Africa, and gives you the eerie feeling that you are going to swim off the edge of one of the largest waterfalls in the world. Swimmers can look over the side as thousands of gallons of water from the Zambezi River plummet down into the gorge beneath them. The pool is thankfully completely safe though with a rock wall that prevents any swimmers from being pulled over the edge.
We may have pinned about the Devil's Pool at Victoria Falls before but it is most certainly something every traveller should have on their bucket list! #Zambezi #VictorialFalls #Dragoman #BucketList

On all our tours and workshops I encourage our guests to also shoot verticals, not only horizontals. Magazines for instance, are all based on verticals, so if you ever want your picture to grace the cover or to be published on a full page, you'll need to shoot verticals as well. A little while back I got an email from British Airways, asking whether I had a vertical version of my famous picture The Edge, of an elephant at Victoria Falls. And as a matter of fact I did, I just never processed it. When I started processing the image, I wondered why I hadn't done it earlier - the vertical version seems to make more sense because you can actually see the height of the falls and you can see all the water falling down. Anyway, British Airways published the shot and I was happy they had given me a good reason to dive into my image library again. Here's the background story that I wrote for the horizontal version: - It's hard enough to make original pictures, but with some subjects it simply borders the impossible. When I was at Victoria Falls last year, I thought about the billions of photographs that must have been taken there, and I almost decided to just visit the place without my camera. That was until I spoke with some of the local people, who told me that they had seen a bull elephant crossing the Zambezi river the day before. During my research I had not seen any images of the falls with an elephant in it, so I decided to stay a few extra days and try my luck. The course of the Zambezi is dotted with numerous tree-covered islands, which increase in number as the river approaches the falls. As the dry season takes effect, the islets on the crest become wider and more numerous, and with the water level of the Zambezi dropping, once submerged walkways and fresh foraging possibilities present themselves. This elephant was apparently aware of this. On the third day I left very early with a small boat to reach my location. On my way to the edge I suddenly saw the lone bull wading through shallow parts of the river, but it was far away and light levels were low, so I decided to continue to the falls. I took some sunrise shots and half an hour later I saw the elephant approaching the falls. I quickly collected my gear and moved carefully towards the edge where the water plummeted into a 360ft chasm - not particularly nice when you're afraid of heights... I set everything up in order to include as much as possible of the falls and made a composition. Luckily the elephant was aware of my preference to shoot into the light, so his position couldn't be better. After I took the shots, I knew I had just witnessed and captured something very special. Later that day local people confirmed this by telling me that they had never seen an elephant so close to the edge of the falls before - exactly what I wanted to hear! This image was featured as a double page spread in National Geographic, and won First Prize in the European Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards. - If you would like to join me on our next photo tour in Zambia and learn everything about wildlife photography, please check out my website for more information and tour impression video clips: Squiver Photo Tours & Workshops Hope to see you there!

Pulteney Bridge crosses the River Avon in Bath, England. Use to have lunch at a little pub right here on the weekend. Beautiful place. Tanya
Pulteney Bridge, a bridge that crosses the River Avon, in Bath, England, connecting the city with the new town of Bathwick. It is one of only four bridges in the world with shops across the full span on both sides. The much-photographed bridge and the weir below it are close to the centre of the city which is a World Heritage Site largely because of its Georgian architecture. Also, the city gets its name from the famous Roman baths which are in the town.
