"The day it was so windy the waterfall ran uphill"
There was a massive storm in Britain on this day. The port of Dover was shut all morning. The wind was up to 106mph (170 kmh).
After some hours, the sky was already calm, but the sea was so rough, that this huge ferry hardly managed to cross the English Channel, getting hit by huge waves and splashing water everywhere. No need to say that I got all wet to take this picture...

The Iguazu Falls are the largest waterfalls in the world (in flow). Situated on the border between Brazil and Argentina, they are considered one of the 7 wonders of nature. The magnificent spectacle of these 275 individual drops has awed tourists, locals and indigenous inhabitants for centuries.
It is definitely worth a visit and a walk on the walkway along the canyon.
The Cofete beach is a very long, wide and mysterious beach in the south of Fuerteventura, the oldest of the Canary Islands. Deserted, lonely, always with some mist in the air. In the background you can see the 800m high mountains of Jandia where clouds get caught. There are no signs of tourists or locals here, apart from the mysterious "Villa Winter", a huge old house which you can see in the top right of the picture. The conditions here are perfect for photography, specially during the sunrise/sunset hours.
