Nature is awesome. 🍃🌲🌿
This stunning ‘View of the Cascade’ by William Daniell, from Daniell’s Panoramic Sketch of Prince of Wales Island, 1821, depicts a waterfall in Penang, Malaysia.
The large hand-coloured aquatint will be offered alongside a second view of the same island, titled ‘View of the Great Tree’, in Bonhams upcoming Travel and Exploration sale in London. The lot is estimated at £600-800.
We’ve seen all kinds of waterfalls: hidden waterfalls, crystal blue waterfalls,underwater waterfalls, frozen waterfalls— heck, we’ve even seen lava falls.
But just when we thought we’d seen them all — alas! — we stumbled across one type of waterfall we’ve never before considered: Upside Down Waterfalls.
These oxymorons are actually quite natural, albeit rare. Rather than defying gravity, as their name suggests, upside down waterfalls happen when strong gusts of wind blow against a waterfall’s flow, thus forcing the stream of water to spray upward or blow backward.
This unique and gravity-defying wonder is only visible along the Pali Highway during wet season, especially after heavy rains, and in the presence of strong winds. There is no lookout platform so it can only be viewed inside the car while driving along the highway, eastbound direction towards Kailua. The falls is on the right hand side of the road.
So really, it’s an optical illusion: upside down waterfalls only appear to be flowing in the opposite direction. Mother nature, you so silly.
