DescriptionTaller than Niagara Falls and almost four times as wide, Iguazu Falls consist of 275 cascades spread in a horsehoe shape over nearly two miles of the Iguazu River. But the matter of these fact details do nothing to describe the grandeur of the falls, the tremendous amount of water thundering down 269 feet, the tropical location and the sheer beauty that led Eleanor Roosevelt to say 'Poor Niagara'.

The greatest treasure in life is peace. A still photograph, be it of a landscape or of a violent act of motion, is a moment frozen in time. Photography is peace that places one's mind at ease and allows for an avenue of expression.
Some of the photographs here were captured with careful thought and planning, while others occurred organically. All were captured for a somewhat selfish purpose of creating an object, and more importantly, an emotion, that is greater than oneself. Many have since brought enjoyment to others, which in turn could not make the humble artist any more pleased. It is my ultimate wish, that this trend continues.
