Spring is coming in the Alps, everything turns green after a long cold winter. The perfect moment to capture forests and waterfalls.

'Spring is coming in the Alps, everything turns green after a long cold winter'. I have to smile at this description, a smile caused by the extreme opposite of what happens here in Western Australia. Here, everything turns green after a long, hot, dry summer where we see very little rain.
For example, this April we managed to get less than 1 mm of rain compared to our long term average of 36 mm. For Jan, Feb, March, and April we should have seen about 87 mm; so far this year, we have seen less than 10 mm. And our temperatures can and do get to the mid to high 40's.
Like your picture though.

At first I thought this was a waterfall I know here in the United States called "Spruce Flats Falls." It's located in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It is virtually identical, and I do mean IDENTICAL. Eerie. Absolutely wonderful photo.
