I took this picture of the beautiful Victoria Falls on my recent visit in November 2009. The photo is taken from the Devil's cataract in direction of the Main Falls. The water at that time of the year is at it's lowest compared to the rest of the year. However the green vegetation around, the many thousands of litres of water storming down into the valley and the sound of twittering birds around you makes this a location worth visiting any time of the year.

Maligne Lake is a lake in Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada. It is approximately 22.5 km (14 mi) long and 97 m (318 ft) at its deepest point. The name Maligne is French for "wicked" and was used by Father Pierre-Jean De Smet (1801-1873) to describe the treacherous river that flows from the lake. The name soon spread to the lake, canyon, pass, mountain and range.
