There's something about the image that makes me wonder.

The 1/500 sec. shutter speed and the change in color across the falls leads me to believe that those are not falls, but rocks shaped by water flowing over them, and that she is standing in a pool of water that is barely below the level of the rockledge.

Have I got that right, or are those really falls?

TCav, You are right, they are rock although I'm not sure what sort.

Bahadir I know could give you a much better explanation than me of what they are and how they formed.

How extraordinary!

My guess would be limestone.

Very nice shot, btw.

In the picture above there's only one cascade observable. Actually there are many of them spread subsequently followingthe slope of the hill.Roughly, the calcium deposit in hot spring water is left on the rocks as the water drips from one cascade to the next and these deposits gets hard in time. That's why stepping on these cascades of travervine with shoes, etc.is forbidden.

Below is linkto a photo I found on the web whichdisplays more than words : ) Ah shame, my hundreds of old slides are awaiting to be digitilazed. (Btw,a decent flatbet recommendation that would do the job is quite welcome!)

Bahadir is right, there are many. Here is another view across the valley.
