Upon arriving Argentina, their dulce de leche (a thick caramel-like mile based sauce/spread) really caught my attention. Their version is simply the best, it's not the sweet, so creamy, soft and flawlessly blended together. As soon as we arrived the park and see the spectacular falls, this Argentine delicacy seems to not let go of my imagination as the water flowing from the falls resembles the dulce de leche.
The water levels is very high due to the rain, causing the water to change into a muddy dulce de lcehe-like color. During normal levels the falls changes it colors to a simple and very striking blue. Imagine how amazing this falls changes its color huh?
Weather conditions were not that good, a little bit of sun and blues in the sky, and it was very cold. The Photo may not be the best, but I did my finest way just to capture this breathtaking falls, being there in front of it was just amazing.
This shot was taken on the Argentine side, on the upper circuit.

A very dramatic photo of one of my favorite spots on earth! Such an amazing place, and I love the walkways they have constructed to allow access like this right over the falls. And you're right, the water is definitely reminiscent of dulce de leche! Nicely done.

Nothing short of spectacular!
This place is fabulous and you have captured it in a masterful way. You chose well the POV - it seems to be just on those troubled waters!
Even if the weather conditions were not good you managed to obtain a pretty good image with enough contrast and lovely pastel colours. But IMO what makes the photo outstanding is the composition where the curve of the waterfall creates a great depth.

Very impressive sight, Matt.
A good take from close proximity to the water's, noteable the foam it produces.

A dynamic photo - I feel as though I am right in the scene. Great colours. Cheers, Marlene

This looks pretty amazing just as it is! If it was blue then there would only be maybe 1/4 as much water? Excellent sharpness, framing & colour. Tfs!
