Kirk Falls, a great location, but an extremely tricky place to obtain photographs at! The waterfall forms part of an enclosed (on three of the four sides) "amphitheatre" type geographical rock formation. The sun just never seems to get into a decent position at any time of the day and there are space constraints in terms of angle / position options for the photographer. To make best use of the waterfall as a feature, one also needs to have a train running contra-flow as well. As luck would have it, this was the case here, with 18-250 and this tanker train. The train has just (still is) exited the first of two tunnels, with the entrance portal to the second tunnel about 20m in front of where the train is positioned here now. Unfortunately, being a late autumn day when this photo was taken, the water flow was weak, but during the summer rainfall months the waterfall can be a pretty impressive sight.
Rare South African photographs (older and newer) on RailPictures.Net, where the potential to recreate them either no longer exists for any number of reasons, or the chances of another opportunity are very slim or non existent!
