The Reichenbach Falls were already one of those 'must see' items on the route of 18th and 19th century travellers through Switzerland before being brought to even greater prominence by the confrontation of Professor Moriarty by Sherlock Holmes in the 1893 novel 'The Final Problem' by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in which the pair plunge to their deaths here.

Prue Bishop says "These falls were a subject that over many years I'd promised myself I'd portray. I visited many times and in different seasons of the year, getting totally 'immersed' in the sound, fury and mists of this raging torrent. In December 2015 the water was diverted elsewhere during work to improve the public viewing points, and this allowed me to view, touch and feel the massive rock structures worn by centuries of cascading water. The size of everything when 'inside' the area normally occupied by water is vast; way larger than the impression from a distance."

Below: Prue Bishop takes a very close look at just one small section of the Reichenbach Falls Rock Structures
