Photographer's Note

This is my continuation of old pictures I took 10 years ago. This picture is scanned from a hard copy. I hope you enjoy as much as I do.

Iguazu is one of the greatest falls in the world for its beauty and grandeur. It is a testimony of Love and Jalousie. The Guarani legend says that Iguazu fall was created when the god of the forest, enraged by her warrior lover escaped downriver by canoe with a young girl, dropped the riverbed in front of the lovers producing a precipitous falls over which the girls fell and, at their base, turned into a rock. The warrior survived as a tree overlooking his fallen lover.

Iguazu falls are located on the border between Brazil, Argentina, and Paraguay. Taller than Niagara Falls, twice as wide with 275 cascades spread in a horseshoe shape over nearly two miles of the Iguazu River. Their height isn't as inspiring as is their length - the falls seem to go on and on in the distance. When the water level of the river is high, the whole ridge is almost covered in the huge expanse of water pouring over. At other times, when the river level is lower, the amount of water is less and trees are rocks jump out from the fall wall providing a beautiful break in the water.
