I have just returned from a short photo trip to Ubatuba in Brazil. Ubatuba is a region in the state of Sao Paulo and a very photogenic one. It is situated on the northern coast of Sao Paulo state and is a couple of hours drive away from the massive metropolis Sao Paulo.
I recently visited the beautiful city of Ouro Preto to take photos. I can confirm that Ouro Preto is one of the most photogenic places i have ever visited. Ouro Preto is a former colonial mining town situated in the Serra do Espinhaço mountains which are in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. It was and designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Ouro Preto means black gold, it was the main location of the 18th century gold rush and Brazil’s golden age under Portuguese rule.
I have just recently returned from a trip to the island of Ilha Grande off the coast of Rio de Janeiro State in Brazil. I managed to take a few photos from Ilha Grande to share with you. Although it was more of a relaxing holiday rather than photo trip.
Chapada dos Veadeiros is an ancient plateau of some 1.8 billion years, making it one of the oldest rock formations on earth. Chapada dos Veadeiros is based in the Brazilian state of Goias. It is 655 square kilometres and is listed as a World Heritage Site by Unesco. The landscape is called cerrado here, similar to the plains of Africa. The climate is tropical, hot and semi-arid.
