    Wonder of Nature - Iguassu Falls

    Dear all,

    Here are some pictures of the Iguassu falls, one of the 7 wonders of nature (http://world.new7wonders.com/new7won...ers-of-nature/), in the border Brazil-Argentina. They are formed by around 275 falls, varying from 60 to 80 meters high. I shot these during my recent visit to Iguassu, after my trip to Pantanal.

    Note: If you would like to know the Indian legend that explain how the falls were made, just click here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T_jpnhNc6p4. It's funny...

    I hope you like them. C&C welcomed.

    A very impressive set of pictures. Each one is a well-composed, well thought-out image. And, the series has educated me and, I am sure, many other people.

    Really nice set of images, Otavio. You did a good job of giving the overall sense of scale as well as some more intimate looks. Nicely done.

    Many thanks, Donald. I am really glad that you liked these images. CIC has educated me during these months I've been here, so, if I have offered any usefull information to the members, I feel like I'm just paying a little of my debt with this wonderful community!

    An interesting series Otavio. You certainly chose a good selection of angles, thanks for sharing with us and I'm not going to pick a favourite.

    Same here. How on earth did they manage to construct that walkway? Do the fall have a low water season?

    WOW! I was thinking they were nice pictures of a waterfall until I got to #9 and saw how large of an area they covered. Very impressive. Cool walking bridge, looks like a fun place to visit. Oh, and excellent pictures too.

    Hi John. Yes, there is a low water season, but even so, there is always water at the level of the walkway lower structure. They did it the same way they do a bridge foundation, I suppose. Thanks for viewing and commenting!
