Usually there is nobody there but this day were full of tourists. Many photographers don't like when people appear in their landscapes, but actually I like it. People add proportions to your photos.

The water stream is split from the rock in the middle and gives the name of the waterfall. Chantara means a Scale or "weighing machine"

Tourists left. Now it is time for some art photography. Speed and aperture are fine but the reflections from the wet surfaces look a bit nasty. It is time for CPL filter.

Now it is much better... No reflections and the colors are more saturated.
