Photos from Brazil Trip

Unread postby sury » Thu May 31, 2018 10:49 pm

I am somewhat behind in posting photos from a recent trip to Brazil in late December 2017 that my wife and I went.

This is at a place called Escadaria Selaron https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Escadaria_Selar%c3%b3n.
As I was taking photo of the tiles this young lady (from Argentina) jauntily started posing and I grabbed a quick
street "candid".

Sury, Good shots!
Are you sure in the first shot it's Brazil, not Kazakhstan as label say ? :) :) :)

Thank you Valery. Kazakhstan... Hmmm. Need to talk to missus.
The whole place is full of tiles from different parts of the world.

Interesting shots Sury.

My immediate reaction was that the actual sunset surely must have been over your right shoulder somewhere?

I must admit I didn't spot the "Kazakhstan" until it was pointed out. In fact I didn't notice the tiles too much - the centre of attraction certainly does work :wink: !

Peter,
You are right. I uploaded the different (incorrect :oops: ) picture for the sunset. It was sun rise. The Copacabana is on Atlantic and our hotel room was facing easterly direction. What threw me off is also is the EXIF data since the clock on my camera was still set to Pacific time.
Kazakastan... Hmmm. Should suggest to missus for a future trip. :D

Here is another one to prove your point and confirm my error. :)

Thank you Henry.

Igausu falls from Argentina side. Igausu falls like Niagara falls straddle Argentina and Brazil. From Argentina side you get a "top" view of the falls and from Brazil side you get to be closer to the falls. An interesting dichotomy. One of the more notable events is the boat ride from Argentina side. The open boat is actually driven into the falls. A once in a life time experience.

Post drench under the falls. The falls we drove into is to the right as you see the photo. You feel asphyxiated with so much volume of water pouring over you. I think one may die due to lack of oxygen than due to drowning. Unique experience. I am told the boat ride from Brazilian side does not do this activity. That is the missus to my left, who also plans these trips and tells me to pack my camera back and leave. :lol:

Rio Negro, Amazonas State, Brazil. I am told the high temperatures (30oC typical) caused the vegetation to be "infused" and the water becomes dark. Hence the name.
Anavilhanas State Park, I think.
