Photographer's Note

Situated in Iguaz National Park, some 20 km. from Puerto Iguaz in the north of the province of Misiones, Argentina, the Iguaz falls are shared by Brazil and our country.

Iguaz river is born in Paran state in Brazil, and after crossing 1,200 km. on a plateau where it receives several affluents, it reaches a fault forming a crack in the interleaved layers of sandstone and basalt where the river runs.

This river runs through a smooth geography until it reaches a series of faults, and suddenly an 80 m. canyon in the Devils Throat, the main fall of Iguaz, where the water produces a thundering sound and then drains into the Parana river.
