Photographer's Note

One of the world's largest dams, Itaipu dam is situated only 10 km from Foz do Iguaçu. Dam has eighteen 700.000 kilowatt generators and became fully operational in 1991. Damming of the Rio Paraná created a 1350 square kilometre reservoir seen at the bottom of the photo. Though I didn't do it, dam can be visited and guided tours are organized.

Photo was taken during my Rio de Janeiro-Curitiba-Foz do Iguaçu flight when we started descending for the Foz do Iguaçu airport.
