Falls Down

Photograph by Thomas Major, National Geographic Your Shot

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.”
