The masterpiece of 20th century residential architecture.
When I originally edited my New Zealand trip galleries, the Milford Sound portion of the trip made for some difficult decision making. There were just too many amazing things to see in that corner of the country. This shot, taken from the boat, was left out of the original collection.
A long exposure of a group of falls on the Argentina side, processed to look like vintage wet-plate photo chemistry.
Nearing the end of the trail on the Brazil side of the falls, a glimpse behind the water. This perspective is from the top left corner of the Devil’s Throat photo.
The roar. The spray. The sheer power of nature on stark display. Heading into those falls, it didn’t take long to be very glad I put the camera into a dry bag just after this shot.
On the Brazilian side, looking up the “Devil’s Throat” toward the mouth of the falls, with Argentina on the right. These shots had to be taken quickly because of the extraordinary amount of spray coming from nearly all sides.
Looking through the trees on the Brazil side of the falls. The rightmost side of the walkway at the top is where On The Edge was taken.
People departed. Tour boats stopped. Just the roar and the early evening sun over this massive ring of waterfalls.
A pair of “tiny” waterfalls near the end of the main trail in Iguazu National Park. With hundreds of falls in the park spilling millions of gallons of water per minute, it’s easy to overlook these tiny cascades as afterthoughts.
From the walkway atop the Devil’s Throat portion of the Iguazu Falls, looking south at the Argentine side.
Upstream of the main falls, there are plenty of interesting locations to watch the water. This long exposure captures the junction of the churn and the constant flow of the Niagara River.
When the veil of fog and rain finally lifted, there was yet more water. The rapids upstream of the falls have a lot of character, and stand in stark contrast to the still, leafless trees.
New Year’s Day meant a long drive from Toronto to Baltimore. It was a slight detour to visit the Falls, but worth the diversion to spend a few hours walking along the water.
The site of the fifth highest annual rainfall anywhere on the planet, Milford Sound sees some 9 m (30 feet) of rain pour from the sky each year. And most of it seems to be coming down tonight. After driving through places like “Devil’s Staircase Bluff,” so many rivers that they’re numbered rather than named.
