Falls Down

Your Shot member Thomas Major saw the opportunity to create this image from above while in Foz do Iguaçu in Brazil. “I wanted to get a shot looking down at the people watching the falls. When I got to the top of the observation platform and looked down I noticed this geometric shape ... When the person put their arms out I knew that this completed the composition.”
