Astronomy Photo Of The Day meets Ridley Scott's "Prometheus"

Sci-fi film fans out there may recognise this location (i.e. the waterfall) from the opening sequence of Ridley Scott's recent return to the "Alien" universe in "Prometheus", where the Engineer sacrifices himself to sow the seeds of life in the water going over the falls.

And the photo itself...? Well, no surprise to see it won a competition. Just stunning.
