Photographer's Note

The many steps of the waterfalls of the Iguacu are distributed in a gorge and sorrounded by rainforest. The 2km long 'waterfall trail' offers great views of them. This picture highlights one of the smaller falls in the gorge, combining different elements of this unique landscape.

Making of:
Taken on a hike along the cataratas trail.

Goal: My intend was to frame the small waterfall with the leaves of the dense rainforest at the sides of the gorge.

Technical notes:
I used a small exposure time and a high aperture to get a big depth of field. To achieve a depth effect parts of the waterfalls in the background were left visible, being vague behind the wall of drizzle and a saturation gradient was build up.
