No I'm quite happy to leave them in peace. [Love your 'embiggen'!]
Cheers

I'll be happy to oblige!
My youngest son, however, wishes you had taken a picture of the snakes!

Disturb the snakes? Who in their right mind would do that? Oups - I forgot the lady who jumped into the water to swim with the polar bears....People DO need to be told sometimes!

A great photo anyhow! I can hear the roar from the waterfall!

Just hearing they may be around somewhere would get me jumping out of my feet and running as fast as I could away from here. I am soo afraid of them.

Lovely to look at but with snakes there it would definitely be from a distance. LOL!

Denise said...

Great photo, love the waterfall and like that you have added that sign. I have a fascination for snakes but don't know enough to recognize a safe one from a not so safe one, so keep my distance. Do like the reptile houses at the zoo though.

Ha! I'm glad you took such a good photo of that place, Mojo, because I'll probably see it in person due to all the snakes. ;-)

bettyl said...

It would be so lovely to stand at a safe distance and listen to the water!

Glad they told me about the snakes, although I wouldn't be wading.

Bryan said...

Warning signs like this often exist because of trouble in the past, which is too bad. This looks like a beautiful area judging by the foliage in the background.

Aileni said...

I wouldn't dream of disturbing them.

Tricia said...

I promise, I won't!!! No likey snakes!
Beautiful waterfall tho

daddyandboys said...

Beautiful photo. Looks like a great place to visit.

Bim said...

I'm another one who agrees that undisturbed snakes are far better than disturbed ones - but I'm also lacking the phantasy how people would disturb them from that particular point.

Pacey said...

Yay, snakes? but the cascading waters are just so beautiful. Great shot as always.

Ebie (The Main-Ingredient) said...

Yikes, snakes! Guess I cannot take a dive!

I would never have guessed that this place was a water snake habitat. The waterfall seems so strong. It's a good thing that there is a sign! I will take my distance. Have a great day :).

Lew said...

Where do the southern snakes hang out?

Martha said...

I wouldn't dream of disturbing them.

luna miranda said...

Shadow said...

Tulip said...

lovely waterfalls but i won't swim there if there are snakes.

Tarolino said...

Quite right too. Allthough I cannot see snakes thriving in such turbulent conditions. Absolutely beautiful sight though. There to just be admired. Lovely capture.

jadey said...

Umm just the thought of disturbing the snakes gives me the heebie jeebies lol. My 55 is up.

Regina said...

It's good..

NicoleB said...

OK, so not a place to take a quick nice shower ;)

Tammie Lee said...

Fun, do not disturb the snakes, okay!
Wonderful waterfall.

storyteller said...

Beautiful waterfall photo apparently best observed with caution from a distance ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

allhorsestuff said...

No worries with me ever visiting there, since I know that there are some snakes about ..that disturbs me!
Glad to see the beautiful falls though...thanks!

Dimple's Mom said...

Oh well, i will just have the view to shoot but will never get nearer enough to see them sleep or whatever they are doing. hehehee am just scared of them. :D

Nice entry, Mojo!

Laurieluc said...

love the waterfalls, but not sure i'd venture into known snake territory to get the shot! Very brave!

Lil Bit said...

OMG, gorgeous!!!

LOL @ that sign, given our recent chat. ;)
