Curtain of water

Firts at all I have to appologize for the lack of responce I do after posting my yesterdays picture. On the office I have very limited time to react on the nice and encouraging critiques I received so I planned it to do it in the hotel, unfortunately for unknown reasons I'm not able to log in at the hotel's internet. I will try to catch up as good as possible when I'm at the office.

Anyway here again a view of the Iguaçu Falls on the Argentinian side. The amount of falls in this area is over 270 and here a few of them. I can assure you the view was breathtaking. The white plume on the left side is the mist created by the biggest fall of Iguaçu called: Garganta do Diabo, translated: The Devil's Throat. Later I will post a picture of the "throat".

Wow, amazing view Hans. Love the sweeping curtain of waterfalls here - it takes the eye into the shot from right to left.
Looks like a very impressive place ... hope you're enjoying everything down there!!

There you go!! SUPER WIDE!! That is so amazing Hansie!! What an incredible view, it does put Niagara to shame! I can imagine the sounds you hear at this place! Wonderful shot!

Machtig mooi, Hans...!!
Prima standpunt; heel fijne kleuren en belichting.
Ik droom ervan ooit nog es één van die grote watervallen met eigen ogen te aanschouwen; dat moet heel indrukwekkend zijn!

Hi Hans,
Nice contrast between the white water, the green trees and the blue sky, great PoV with the falls in the distance and nice depth keeping all in focus. Best wishes

Hi Hans,

Where's Ron Ely? ;-) (I used to watch Tarzan as a kid, & every opening sequence to the old tv series, had this waterfall, supposedly set in deepest, darkest Africa.) A superb view of the impressive falls. Tfs!

Wow thats impressive Hans. Nice wide shot gives us plenty to look at.

The noise must have been deafening.

Curtain after curtain after curtain of water. Just brilliant, and what an amazing place to visit Hansie.
It's all green, white and blue - It must be quite noisy, I imagine.
Well captured Hans - thank you
