We stayed in Iguaçu falls for 3 days, one day for a hike on the
Brazilian side, one day for a hike on the Argentinean side and 1 day
to hopefully KAP them.
The first 2 days, the weather was just perfect, no cloud, beautiful light, very pleasant temperature and humidity and…NO wind at all. The last day of our stay came some clouds, wind and a very dull light but at least we had some wind and KAPing the falls seemed possible, even if I knew that the results would not be the best.
There is a very dense forest by the falls and the closest we could take off (according to Google Earth and scouting the neighborhood) was roughly 800 meters from the “ Garganta del Diablo”, on the lawn of the Hotel das Cataratas. A bit far, but not much choice and I thought that taking some height would be the solution, but of course we had to deal with the helicopters (which are supposed to fly at 500 meters or 1600 feet) and Heidy was so stressed that the entire session only lasted 15 minutes.
The wind was very unstable, the Fled was moving like the wipers on my car, the rig was jumping all over but nevertheless we managed to get half a dozen of almost “keepers”.
Time for a Caipirinha !!!
