The roar of thunder

Last weekend a had the opportunity (and took it) to visit world larges waterfalls, the Iguaçu (or Iguazu in Spanish) on the Barzilian Argentinia border. Well I didn't regret that discission! What a awesome view on those falls.

United States First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt reportedly exclaimed "Poor Niagara!" when she watched these falls and I can say poor Victoria falls.

Despite the poor weather (drizzle, low grey clouds) on Saturday the impression was breathtaking. On Sunday the weather had changed. A perfect blue sky with some fluffy clouds, a perfect background for the falls. This picture is taken on Sunday when I visited the Argentinian side of the 2.7 km long falls. These Iguazu falls contain out of more than 270 smaller and larger falls.

Will post in the near futer some more pictures.

PP work, shot in RAW, adjusted brightness and contrast, converted to jpeg, adjusted levels and curves, removed some dust spots, resized and sharpened, add frame.

Hi Hans,
Prachtig beeld.
Super samenstelling van je, gefeliciteerd. Een prachtig landschap.
Ik denk dat je ergens in ... wereld. En ik was verkeerd.
Een dag en een prachtige week,

Dit is een schitterende opname Hans!
Als je er wat langer naar kijkt hoor je bijna het gedonder van het water.
Erg mooi en deze foto gaat bij mijn favorieten.
Bedankt en groeten,

Hans i can imagine the sound just looking at this image excellent pov and well captured

Oh yeah, this blows Niagara out of the water! No pun intended! This is an amazing shot Hansie! Tell me why didn't you use a super wide for this shot? Or do you have one? Amazing beauty, nice control of the light here. White water, bright sunlight, hard to shoot!

Bonjour Hans.
Magnifique image qui présente ces chutes d'eau.
La composition est parfaite et les couleurs sublimes donnent de la dynamique à la photo.

Bonne soirée.

Ohhhh, this place is so wonderful - it's my dream to visit it any day.
Your shot is fantastic, it seem your were standing in the water.
Impressive moment, thanks

wow, amazing natural beauty !
Goregeous shot; congrats !!!

Hello dear Hans!

This is very lovely place and wonderful falls. I love to see and visit waterfalls. Unfortunately we do not have such sites here. Very nice details specially of the flowing water. I love to present the water in its actual for while it flows rather than giving it silky look or sort of smooth look. Here you have done that. Nice and vivid colors with lovely sky and great DOF.

TFS, indeed a fabulous POV!

Best Regards,

  • Great

So you got here. I was thinking of you going there last weekend.
Wow Hansie - what awesome Falls. And 2.7 km long.
You were lucky with the weather - absolutely brilliant. And what beauties the falls are
Well done - I am so happy for you to have been able to see them. You show them well.

Hello Hans, a wonderful shot of these awesomely spectacular falls.
Your PoV makes us feel as if we actually standing in the river!
Excellent atmospheric shot and beautiful colours.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Es muy bueno poder ver nuestras cataratas del Iguazú vistas con un lente de un observador extranjero.
Me encantó la foto.
