234: Water reflection
AUGUST 2009: Water reflection
During my stay in Maceió in August 2009, I didn’t restrict myself to the city limits, but I also made some trips by bus. Two of these trips were provided by the tour company, while I was on my own in the other trips. It was not really difficult, I only had to request some information at the hotel and at the bus station for the necessary bus schedules and bus stops. I took the bus to various beaches at some distance from the capital, like Ipioca and Sonho Verde. During the bus ride, I kept the camera on my lap, and I shot several pictures of the varied landscape. A hilly, green landscape with coconut plantations, sugarcane plantations, and grasslands; often the landscape was intersected by rivers or streams, like here on the photo. On this semi-cloudy day, the clouds were sharply reflected in the almost stagnant river water.
