Splendid

This is something I consider splendid.
Victoria Falls
The Victoria Falls
On the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1989, the Victoria Falls, so named by the explorer David Livingstone in honour of Queen Victoria,  is a magnificent waterfall on the Zambezi River, between Zambia and Zimbabwe. The Falls are also known by the indigenous name of Mosi-oa-Tonga, meaning "the Cloud that Thunders".

Victoria Falls
Wonderful, impressive, magnificent, phenomenal, grand, majestic, unforgettable...
Claimed by some to be the largest, this is certainly one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world.
  
This post is part of a weekly feature that is hosted by Jake, who provides a word for inspiration and we, the participants, post our interpretation. Splendid is the theme for this Sunday Post.
