Photo of the Week: A Thundering Drop
This photo takes us to Iguazu Falls on the border of Argentina and Brazil. Every second an average of 62,000 cubic feet of water (1,750 cubic meters) plunge over Iguazu, creating a lingering cloud of mist and ever-present thundering noise. Lush green vegetation surrounds the impressive waterfalls and adds to the picturesque location.
A visit to Iguazu Falls presents travelers with several opportunities to observe its beauty: stroll out on an extended catwalk, as illustrated in this week’s photo; take a boat at the base of the falls for an up-close encounter; or observe an aerial view from a helicopter. Which way appeals to you?
