a dive in the rainbow...
Argentina.. the land where I was born, where I live.. the earth that I love and where I belong to...
the hugest pampas... the silent Patagonia, with whales and glaciers and rocks and fossils... the arid north, with colourful mountains and music of valleys.. los Andes and the Aconcagua, the highest peak of America.. and the rainforest with Iguazu in the north east , where a triple frontier is shared with Brazil and Paraguay.
Its name means big waters (I =water Guazu =big ) in language of Guaranies, those who live and lived there before the conquerors irrupted..
So, Iguazu is the name of the river and also the name of the waterfalls...
The whole system is more than 4 kilometers wide, which combined with its height and the volume of the water during the rainy season makes it one of the largest in the world. Its width is four times larger than the Niagara Falls. 275 falls reaching up to 70 m height..
a roar breaking the air, a wonder pervading all senses...
this is my first photo there...

It is a wonder.. a wonderful place and a wonderful photo with all the shades of the light that plays with water... but what plays with the other? the light? or the water? you are lucky, Sil...

Dear Sil! Wondeful! Amazing! I like it! And I like your notes - I hear the roar, I admire the rainbow and I feel the freshness of the BIG fall.
