Looking down the Devil's Throat (Garganta do Diabo).  Yesterday I took a helicopter ride over Iguazu Falls and was able to open the window and shoot out.  We went on the first flight of the day at 9 am, and at that time there was a high overcast, perfect for photographing the falls and avoiding blown out highlights from the sun reflecting off the water.  The Iguazu River cascades over the edge of the Paraná Plateau in a series of 150-300 waterfalls, depending on the water level.  Right now the water is high due to recent rains. The edge of the plateau is 2700 m long (1.7 mi) and the individual waterfalls vary in height from 60 to 82 m (197 to 269 ft). Approximately half of the river's flow falls into a long horse-shoe shaped chasm called the Devil's Throat, depicted in this image. At the upper right you can see the ruins of the walkway to Devil's Throat on the Argentinian side of the falls, which were destroyed during record rainfalls and flooding in June of this year. Iguazu Falls are a spectacular sight; they are a UNESO World Heritage Site and one of the Seven Wonders of the World.  A wonderful ending to my first trip to Brazil!  21/11/14 www.allenfotowild.com
Saturday, November 22, 2014  "ANGELIC CENTERPIECE"  "Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful" ~ William Morris  I immediately fell in love with this centerpiece on the dining room table of the "The Hampton" home - one of five homes that we toured during the VESTA Home Show last month. Of the five homes, we agreed that this one had the best interior design/décor. I love seasonal candles; and the aromatic scent from these and other candles burning throughout the home were perfect for this time of the year. I might make an attempt at recreating this centerpiece for our dining room table.

11/22/14 - Amaranth; I really like all the detail in these flowers; check it out in the largest size.  Thanks for your comments on my Studebaker shot;  The surgery went well; I have a patch over the eye which will be removed tomorrow morning.  It is going to take a bit of doing to get the reading glasses for books and the computer but I should be set in a couple of days.
November 22, 2014   Welcome to Antigua.

21.11.14 - Heading Home  This is actually from a couple of days ago, but it could easily have been from yesterday which was grey and wet too. The weather seems to be alternating between beautiful sunny autumn days and miserable rainy ones at the moment. If I finish work early enough I try and get Willis up the hill before it gets dark, but we usually end up heading back home in the gathering gloom. Here it was much darker than it looks in the photo, hence the city lights coming on in the distance.
