[rivers/lakes and trees]

Our sister-companions of nature who are trees also always follow the courses of our rivers, lake margins protecting them by supporting their banks with their roots, softening the effects of the high temperatures of their waters with their shadows, offering refuge from predators and a breeding ground for aquatic animals.

For passers-by and photographers, like me, they give them everything they want: a view of the beauty of their trunks, branches and majestic crowns and their breathtaking reflection’s images in their calm waters of rivers and lakes.

In the Amazonian rivers there are many trees that are so prominent in the environment that they are called Notable Trees and are included in the mavegation maps. The featured image tree of this post is one of them.

I'm an amateur photographer based in the city of São Carlos, São Paulo state, SE Brazil. I used to make photographs since I was about 15-17 years old. My first camera was a Olympus Trip, an analogue camera. Many years after that I switched to several digital cameras. Presently I own a Nikon D500 with a small set of lenses and a Fujifilm X100T 23mm. A few years after my retirement as an university professor, after teaching Environmental Chemistry at the Federal University of São Carlos (UFSCar) for 45 years, I decided to invest money and time dedicating myself more seriously to photography. I´ve taken on-line courses as well as I´ve participated to various photography festival across Brazil. By far, my biggest interest is street photography. And in it, I'm interested in portraits, everyday street scenes and architecture.
