16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Top of Murchison Falls

At Murchison Falls in Uganda, the entire White Nile River is forced into a gorge only 7 meters wide before tumbling down 43 meters, creating a force of water pressure like nothing I’ve ever seen. It’s like watching an explosion that just keeps going and going, and is truly an incredible sight.
