This uber-cool view is commonly seen and an obvious choice for this location. A little too wide for my wide angle lens; an extra mm or two would have been nice as 12mm wasn't enough.

I had a bit of a trade-off to make here. I would have liked to show the violent nature of the falls themselves with all of that water churning over the brink, but at the same time, get the swirlie pool of water below. In the end I went for the swirlie pool using a 64x (6-stop) ND filter.
