Bourke’s Luck Potholes

Bourke's Luck Potholes, Blyde River Canyon area; Mpumalanga, South Africa. This natural water feature marks the beginning of the Blyde River Canyon. The potholes are a rock formation caused by the grinding of water and small stones on the soft limestone rock. This forms large holes cut from the side of the canyon which look like over sized spa baths. They have built a great system of bridges to see the falls and holes. That's our shadow on the bridge on the bottom third of the image.
