Iguazu Falls - Brazil

By forilion  
This was taken at the Iguazi Falls on the border of Argentina and Brazil. Truly an awesome place.

Taller than Niagara Falls, twice as wide with 275 cascades spread in a horsehoe shape over nearly two miles of the Iguazu River, Iguaz˙ Falls are the result of a volcanic eruption which left yet another large crack in the earth.

These matter of fact details do nothing to describe the grandeur of the falls, the tremendous amount of water (an average of 553 cubic feet per second) thundering down 269 feet, the tropical location and the sheer beauty that led Eleanor Roosevelt to say Poor Niagara. Four times the width of Niagara Falls, Iguazu Falls are divided by various islands into separate waterfalls.

Great shot - but needs a little more foreground as we only get a hint of the rocks at the base!
