St. Columba Falls is situated in the Northeast Highlands of Tasmania and as an art subject, it’s a good example of the ideal ‘vertical’ composition.

The power and indeed majesty, of this waterfall can only be expressed in vertical format. Anything expressed in a horizontal manner would do the subject a great injustice.

One always looks at the source of water when gazing at a waterfall, hence we look upwards. Why is this? Maybe it’s the noise of a waterfall such as this, or it may even be simple curiosity.

You will note that there are a number of horizontal bands that act as ‘steps’ as the water makes its way down.

Tomorrow I will post another ‘vertical’ example.
