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.
Parque do Ibirapuera (Ibirapuera park) is a beautiful park in the centre of the mega city that is Sao Paulo. It is a well needed oasis in a sea of concrete and chaos. Ibirapuera park is around 2 square kilometres and contains around 120 bird species, from black swans to the great Kiskadees to the Carcara.
I have just returned from a wonderful photography trip to one of the seven natural wonders of the world – Iguazu Falls. The falls are shared by the Iguaçu National Park (Brazil) and Iguazú National Park (Argentina) , and have been designated the title of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The “Iguazu” name comes from Guarani or Tupi words, and means big water. Iguazu Falls resides where the Iguazu River falls over the edge of the Paraná Plateau, some 14miles upstream from the Iguazu’s confluence with the Paraná River. The waterfall system comprises of 275 falls along 1.67 miles of the Iguazu River. Iguazu falls boasts the greatest average annual flow of any waterfall in the world.
