Flight of Fantasy

A condor flies toward a rainbow forming in the spray of Iguazú Falls. The falls, located on the border of Argentina and Brazil, plunge a remarkable 269 feet and are among the world’s most picturesque. “Beauty and the power of nature take the breath away,” photographer Tomasz Tyrka says of the scene. “The cascades with condors flying above made perfect composition. I quickly grabbed the camera to capture this wonderful spectacle.” This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
