Sunrise Over Iguazu Falls

Hola from Argentina! I just arrived in Buenos Aires after two days spent visiting Iguazu Falls, one of the natural wonders of the world. It's a truly stunning place.

I took this photo right at sunrise from the rooftop of my hotel, the Sheraton, which is in Iguazu National Park. Unfortunately the park is closed to visitors until 8am, so shooting the falls up close at sunrise was out of the question. I do like this wide view, with the mist plume catching the pink/orange glow of the rising sun.

This is a blend of two exposures. The rainforest was just too dark otherwise.

Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 24-70L, f/11 @ .6, ISO 50. I didn't bring a tripod with me on this trip, so instead I balanced the camera on the rooftop using a small towel and used mirror lockup.
