Iguazu Falls, are waterfalls of the Iguazu River located on the border of the Brazilian State of Paraná and the Argentine Province of Misiones. The falls divide the river into the upper and lower Iguazu. The Iguazu River starts at the city of Curitiba and runs for the most part of the course in Brazil and at the end at the border of Brazil and Argentina.

This is taken at the Argentina side. This specific section is called Devil's Throat, where the river's falling from 3 sides, like a U shape. It is an unforgettable feeling to be standing there. I could feel the tremble of the power of the falls under my feet standing on the bridge and the sound was deafening. The mist was blasting toward me like heavy rain at times, making taking picture very difficult because of the visibility and moisture. I was hiding my camera under my raincoat most of times to keep it dry. I was only able to take a couple of shots when the mist was not so strong. Regardless, It still got wet and I had to clean and dry it many times.

Hi Way,
beautiful place! Incredible. Amazing power of nature. Excellent presentation and composition.
Thanks for sharing,

Way Lim,
This image is almost as breath-taking as being there.
We, my most beloved wife and myself, have seen this FRIST HAND.
In fact, I've posted a few images from Iguazu. Please click above where it says FIRST HAND. Thanks.
Thank you for sharing this occasion; it is FAR MORE LOVELY than Niagara Falls in Ontario.
These are the GREAT WATERS (3)

Hello Way,
These waterfalls are for me the most beautiful ones on earth. We were there several days and made photos from the Argentinian and Brazilian side. You can see them here on TN.
This wonderful photo is really fantastic in every aspect. The rainbow completes it all.

Hello Way,
I must admit this is the first time I have ever seen or heard of these beautiful falls, they somewhat remind me of Niagara Falls. I like the way the brackish water is visible in little strands on the left hand side of the frame. Wonderfully composed and tac sharp. Beautiful vivid yet natural colors. Great work!!

Way Lim,
照的清晰 很漂亮的瀑布風景
就像萬馬奔騰 一發不可收拾 沒有盡頭
鏡頭的視野特別寬廣 非常細膩 尤其中間還有彩虹
非常的別緻 亮眼
構圖美麗大方雄偉 背景深遂粗獷
