The fall`s of Iguacu. We where at the brazilien site, but went one day to the Argentinion site. This picture is in Argentie
``The waterfall system consists of 275 falls along 2.7 kilometers (1.67 miles) of the Iguazu River. Position is at latitude (DMS): 25° 40' 60 S, longitude (DMS): 54° 25' 60 W . Some of the individual falls are up to 82 meters (269 ft) in height, though the majority are about 64 metres (210 ft). The Devil's Throat (Garganta del Diablo in Spanish or Garganta do Diabo in Portuguese), a U-shaped, 82-meter-high, 150-meter-wide and 700-meter-long (490 by 2300 feet) cataract, is the most impressive of all, and marks the border between Argentina and Brazil. Two thirds of the falls are within Argentine territory. [1] About 900 metres of the 2.7-kilometer length does not have water flowing over it. The edge of the basalt cap recedes only 3 mm per year. The water of the lower Iguazu collects in a canyon that drains into the Paraná River in Argentina, shortly downstream from the Itaipu dam.``

Hello Kristy! Excellent POV and capture. Dangerous waterfall. Nice light and bright, very nice colours. Good work. Well done!


this is a great picture. I like the composition with just a touch of sky at the top of the picture. Many people try to shoot with a slow speed to make the water blur, but I very much like the way you have stopped the water with high shutter speed. The lighting and depth of field is also very good.

Nice shot - thanks for sharing.



What superb detail you have captured here with this waterfall! I tried the same at Niagara Falls, but it was frozen when I went so I settled for a panorama.
