|Another picture of Iguacu Falls (from Brazil side of the falls)|
This magnificent array of waterfalls is located in Southern Brasil in the state of Parana on the border between Argentina and Brasil. They stretch for 2.5 miles plunging 269 feet (82m) into Iguaçu River. They are absolutely "deslumbrante." Numerous rocky and wooded islands on the edge of the escarpment over which the Iguaçu River plunges divide the falls into some 275 separate waterfalls or cataracts. The name of the falls comes from the Guarani Indian word meaning "great water." In 1986 Iguacu Falls were declared a Natural Heritage of Mankind by Unesco.
The vegetation of the region is rich and varied, ranging from semideciduous to tropical. Contrasts are also abundant, with orchids growing next to pines, bamboos next to palm trees, and mosses next to lianas and colorful begonias.

Thank you for welcoming me. I always look at the work from people who sent me a message. I have to say that I like your work very much. You work a lot with strong colours and I like that very much.
In this specific photo I als like that it's possible to see the movement of the waterfalls. Very good photo. Well done.
