In this case, I was glad to be toting my least expensive DSLR. A promenade along the boardwalk to the viewpoint along one tier of the fall resulted in a complete drenching. Fortunately it was a warm day and I quite enjoyed the shower, but my lens was water covered and resulted in many smeary photos such as that to the left.

The viewpoint boasts a 270 degree surround of waterfall, partially captured by the panoramic below (consisting of 3 photos stitched together). One wonders how they managed to build this boardwalk, and to securely anchor it, considering the massive volume and speed of water constantly hurtling by. I suppose they waited for dry season to do this. How non-permanent, compared to the eon enduringness of the waterfall; this little human construction is much a speck in the lifetime of Iguacu Falls.

Of course, I have whole bunches of Falls photos, but I've selected only a few from different angles that I think are useful for illustrating the experience. The task of Post-Vacation-Photo-Curating (PVPC) is one that many of us face. It is an important task - I want to share my pics and presumably y'all out there are interested in seeing them, but if I posted 50 Iguacu Falls photos, how bored would you be? We've all visited a friend's album with 10 shots of the same view (maybe with slight angle change or zoom/unzoom). Sure it was fun to take those photos but in my opinionated opinion, we gallery viewers don't need to see all attempts. Curating is as much a part of the photo album process as taking the photo (and editing, if you are an editing person). Yes it is time consuming, and perhaps the advantage of prompt posting is more important to some. I say it's worth the extra time; each chosen photo will be better appreciated.

Am I in this picture? Maybe.
