[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The waterfall system consists of 275 falls along 2.7 kilometres (1.67 miles) of the Iguazu River. Some of the individual falls are up to 82 metres (269 feet) in height, though the majority are about 64 metres (210 feet). The Garganta del Diablo or Devil's Throat (Garganta do Diabo in Portuguese), a U-shaped 150-metre-wide and 700-metre-long (490 by 2300 feet) cliff, is the most impressive of all, and marks the border between Argentina and Brazil. Most of the falls are within Argentine territory. About 900 metres of the 2.7-kilometre length does not have water flowing over it. The edge of the basalt cap recedes only 3 mm per year.

Hi Monica
Really nice view with beautiful rainbow.

Hello Monica! Catch the rainbow! Good moment, very good effect. Best regards!

Hi Monica
That is wonderful shot of one of the most beautiful places in the world. Very good composition, beautiful colours and good sharpness.
I would like to see these waterfals not only in the pictures.
By the way, have you seen the movie "The Mission" that got an Oscar prize for cinematography. These waterfals were in that film as well.
Best wishes
