Photographer's Note

You didn't like the pictures from Wales from yesterday, I am afraid today it will be much worse. The picture is of poor quality, it was made through the window covered with the water droplets, and in fact, it is the shot from the movie.

Milford’s second-highest waterfall is the Stirling Falls, a staggering 151m in height – three times the height of Niagara Falls, but the 1,300m mountain behind displaces this incredible height. This is the famous waterfall that Hugh Jackman ‘jumped off’ in the movie Wolverine. The sheer drop of the Stirling Falls allows boats and brave kayakers to get right underneath – it’s an incredible feeling to have the power of 151m worth of glacial water falling on top of you. Discovered by Captain Stirling, Stirling who discovered the waterfall chose to name the waterfall after himself; less of a gentlemanly move than Captain Bowen who named the Lady Bowen Falls after his wife.

The biggest attraction of the Milford Sound Cruise is when the boats come very close to the falls which allow people to be under the water. The legend says that the waterfall's water make the people younger.

I didn't know that this water could make me younger and stood safely with my camera behind the window :(.

More fun if you spend 3,5 minutes seeing these pictures.
