The Gates of Calypso by michaelanderson The Gates of Calypso by michaelanderson
"You hear it before you see it. You feel it before you hear it, through the soles of your feet, in the chambers of your soul—a low rumble, the very ground thrumming beneath you. Step to the edge. A gust of wet wind and the earth falls away in this great leap into the abyss." -Jeff Rennicke from National Geographic

Runoff from the heaviest rains in 25 years funnel over the cliffs of Iguazu Falls, one of the greatest natural wonders on the planet. This is the first image of a new series from South America. I spent the last 2 months traversing the wilderness continent, from the windswept of dunes of northern Brazil to the crystalline icebergs of Argentine Patagonia. I came face to face with a puma in the middle of the night below Fitzroy, trekked 50 miles barefoot across a spectacular wilderness of sand dunes, and was lucky enough to get on the first train back to Machu Picchu after the disastrous floods of the past winter. I've got lots of stories and images and share, and I hope you enjoy the ride.

Thanks in advance for any commentary.

-Mike
