Oviedo Images

Here are three random photos I took while I was in Asturias Spain this summer. I like the combination of the three. I like the lines, cirlces, colors, texture and lighting. I hope you like them too. (1# window, #2 rental car, #3 Univeristy of Oviedo sidewalks)

Iguazu Falls

View from the Sheraton Hotel inside the park.  It was worth the money to be able to be next to the falls.  You could hearing from from the balcony.  You could see the animals.  You could walk around after the park was officially closed.  You could be the first one out on the trails in the morning.  The first pictures are views from the hotel.  The last two photos are my favorites.  I them took up close to the falls (Devil's Throat).  If you have never been it is hard to imagine the power, size and volume of Iguazu Falls.  This should be on your bucket list, no matter what.

Argentina - Corrientes and Resistencia


 I spent a few days in Corrientes and Resistencia with friends.  It was nice to spend time in a less touristed area of Argentina.  I really enjoyed the sunset by the river; great conversation, beautiful view, calm breeze.  I made this made base camp for some side trips to Paraguay and to Iguazu.

Buenos Aires, Argentina

Buenos Aires is big, lovely, exciting, edgy, passionante, fun, and I love it. :)
