Iguazu falls and Hotel das Cataracas
Iguazu Falls are a spectacular sight; they are a UNESO World Heritage Site and one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The Iguazu River cascades over the edge of the Paraná Plateau (2700 long) in a series of 150-300 waterfalls, depending on the water level. The individual waterfalls are from 60 to 82 m high. I took a helicopter ride over the falls one morning with a high overcast that prevented blown highlights. This shot is of Ilha do Sao Martin (St. Martin's Island) and the St. Martin falls with the famous old Hotel das Cataracas to the left.
