Jog Falls, created by the Sharavathi River falling from a height of 830 ft is the second-highest plunge waterfall in India. It’s located in Sagara, Shimoga District of Karnataka state, India. The water comes down in four distinct falls, presenting a scene of transcendent grandeur and sublimity, whose effect is greatly heightened by the wild and beautiful country around, covered with a wealth of luxuriant vegetation. The Raja Fall pours in one unbroken column sheer to the depth of 830 ft. Half way down it is encountered by the Roarer, another fall, which precipitates itself into a vast cup and then rushes violently downwards at an angle of forty-five degrees to meet its famous compeer. A third fall, the Rocket shoots downwards in a series of jets; while the fourth, called the Rani (Dame Blanche), is an Undine-like cascade gliding quietly over the mountain side in a sheet of foam.

I had a hard time capturing the falls due to the heavy fog and rain. In one moment, the entire area will be covered in fog and one will be surprised to see such a falls exists except by its sound. I took several captures and the one here was the best where the four distinct falls can be seen.
