Waterwheel in Black and White

This is a waterwheel from the John Wood’s Gristmill in Indiana. I liked the symmetry of the reflection and thought it would be better in Black and White

Iguazu Falls, Argentina

Iguazu Falls, Argentina

Iguazu Falls, Argentina

Iguazu Falls is a complex of about 275 separate waterfalls on the Iguazu River on the Argentina-Brazil border. Both Argentina and Brazil have established  National Parks on their respective portions of the falls and they have done an excellent job of preserving the area, particularly when you consider the huge number of visitors it has each year.

Compromises have been made to accommodate the tourist traffic. A small train takes people from the visitors center on the Argentine side to the portion known as the Devil’s Throat, as well as a stop to the other two main falls trails. This eliminates the need for buses in this area.

The Falls themselves can be reached by a system of catwalks and lookouts which provide excellent views to various portions of the falls while remaining fairly unobtrusive, They are all accessible to the disabled.

One thing that is obtrusive is the helicopter rides leaving every seven minutes from the Brazil side. They are very noisy, pollutive, and disruptive of the wildlife. Only one one helicopter is allowed in the air at once, an improvement from past years when as many as eight would be airborne, but they are still a very jarring element.
