Monday Moment: Iguazu Falls, Argentina

Iguazu Falls, Argentina

It’s hard to fathom the amount of water tumbling over the edge of Iguazu Falls in Argentina. As one of the largest waterfalls in the world it is an impressive sight on a normal day. The storms from the days before had saturated the earth and caused the falls to be even grander on this day. Coloured red from the soil, the water had started to take over the surrounding jungle.

Hard to believe that there was a time in 1978 when the falls were completely dry.

  1. It is indeed an amazing shot, and I can’t take my eyes off of it. And yes Shing, as I was as intrigued and concerned about the matter as you are, I googled it, and yes, the Falls dried up for 28 days. It happened twice, first was in 1934 and then in May and June of 1978.
