Iguazú Falls - Argentina 2002
"A personal World favourite! Truly amazing place in the depths of the jungle. Thick vegetation and wildlife amidst an alley of rainbows. I foolishly put down my lunch bag whilst taking this shot and returned to find it was being consumed by a family of small mammals with sharp pointy teeth!"
Shot on 35mm film and digitally re-mastered for optimum effect. Some analogue film texture can be seen in print which adds to the beauty of the image.
Iguazú falls, border of Argentina and Brazil
Iguazú river is born in Paraná state in Brazil, and after crossing 1,200 km. on a plateau until it reaches a series of faults, and suddenly an 80m. canyon in the Devil's Throat where the water produces a thundering sound and then drains into the Parana river. There are more than 270 falls in the area. 500 species of wild fowl, 80 species of mammals and an immense variety of reptiles, fish, insects and butterflies live in this abundant ecosystem.
