In Jericoacoara, even where nature died the landscape is beautiful. Here the mangrove got dried up, and we can observe that kind of landscape while we go on a buggy ride along the coast.

When I see this interesting and impressed image , I remembered a writing. I want to share it with you.
"The universe is a palace, but it is such a palace that in it is a city which is being constantly shaken by destruction and reconstruction. And in the city is a country which is being continuously agitated by war and emigration. And within the country is a world which is unceasingly revolving amid death and life. But such an astonishing balance, equilibrium and equilibration prevail in the palace, city, country and world that it self-evidently proves that the transformations, incomings and outgoings apparent in these innumerable beings are being measured and weighed every moment on the scales of a Single Being Who sees and supervises the whole universe.
For if it had been otherwise, if causes had been free and unrestrained, which try to destroy the balance and overrun everything, through a single fish laying a thousand eggs and a single flower like a poppy producing twenty thousand seeds, and through the onslaught and violence of change and the elements flowing in floods, or if it had been referred to aimless, purposeless chance, anarchic blind forces, and unconscious dark Nature, the equilibrium of beings and balance of the universe would have been so utterly destroyed that within a year, indeed within a day, there would have been chaos. That is to say, the seas would have been filled with things in total disorder and confusion and would have become fetid; the atmosphere would have been poisoned with noxious gases; and as for the earth, it would have turned into a refuse-heap, slaughter-house, and swamp. The world would have suffocated.
And especially the compassionate balance on the face of the earth of the births, deaths, livelihoods, and lives of the four hundred thousand plant and animal species, it shows a single Just and Compassionate One, as clearly as light shows the sun.
And especially the members, faculties, and senses of a single of the innumerable members of those species, they are related to each other with so fine a balance and equilibrium that their balance and mutual proportion show an All-Wise and Just Maker so clearly as to be self-evident.
O wasteful, prodigal.. wrongful, unjust.. dirty, unclean.. wretched man! You have not acted in accordance with the economy, cleanliness, and justice which is the principle by which the whole universe and all beings act, and are therefore in effect the object of their anger and disgust. On what do you rely that through your wrongdoing and disequilibrium, your wastefulness and uncleanliness, you make all beings angry? Yes, the universal wisdom of the universe, which is the greatest manifestation of the Divine Name of All-Wise, turns on economy and lack of waste. It commands frugality.

un paisaje infinito aquí, parece que no se termina en la línea del horizonte.
Los manglares muertos dan una sensación de tristeza, pero aportan un fuerte grafismo a la imagen.
Buena luz y suaves colores, para una composición atractiva.

A great capture of this fascinating landscape. Well composed with the sea in the background and topped by a pale but interesting sky.

Pitty about the trees, but the result as a nature's scenery is unique.
Very interesting how the process goe's, and you managed a nice image.

Uma foto incrível.Gostei dos tons amarronzados e do grafismo criado pelos galhos mortos,

una immagine triste con le mangrovie portate a riva dal mare.
Per il resto unaimmagine ottimamente composta con una bella tonalità dai colori pastello,

it's always sad to see some died landscapes,even if we can find this beautiful.I like the softness of the light and blue colors behind the dead trees.

Hello Fabiano! Amazing landscape photography, beautiful simpicity idea! Excellent POV, framing and composition, ! Faultlessly light management, wonderful colours! Beautiful of phenomenon atmosphere! Congratulations!

It is absolutely devastating to see the dying nature. They appear like piles of bones. I have a mixed feelings and reactions. The view of the ocean is stunningly beautiful. But the view of the dead nature at such scale is hurting. The beauty of your photo is in the contrast of living and dead nature. Nature recreates itself. Your photo captures such living nature and its cycle of life. Thank you for this image, it makes me think of wondrous beauty of nature once again.
With my very best regards,
Have a very productive week, Fabiano

looks like a hostile environment indeed!
The dead trees make an impact, even if this is the result from a natural change...
A fine documentary with good details!

Bonsoir, cher Fabiano,
Paysage de désolation, de fin du monde !
L'image est fort bien présentée malgré l'aspect général.
Félicitations pour cette réalisation qui laisse le spectateur songeur.
La nature prend parfois sa revanche !

Hi Fabiano, singular image, an interesting phenomenon, the image is striking for its extraordinary clarity, I really like the framing, the depth and shades of gray, great job, have a nice day, Valter

Impressive compositon and low pov, revealing the dead mangrove trees along this coast filling much of the mid frame and the contrast against the environment A very unique seascape, but light looks flat but manageable, pin sharp and excellent colors. A sad scene indeed and the dead ecosystem, this certainly gives an idea of current problems being faced here, Good record shot on your part. TFS
Mangrove is considered as our heritage is highly protected and very very well maintained and highly respected in my country.

A beautiful landscape with these dead plants scattered on the shore. I like the color contrast between the blue sky and the brown plants. Nice sharp image.

Sin duda una gran composicion y una bonito imagen, dentro de la desolacion que supone, contemplar esta naturaleza muerta, las ramas secas dan un bonito grafismo a la imagen.
Ideales estos tonos suaves de color, con una luz muy agradable.
Disfruta de un feliz fin de semana.

the muddy place with the branches as are spread in it makes the scene as an original one.I like the authentic image as the good light management of the scene.
Angshu (55035) 2011-10-16 6:01
The stumps & the roots of the mangroves.. a real pity about why they dried up! Mangroves are an integral part of certain ecosystems and is preserved in quite a few countries. The scene has been brought out with fine clarity & sharpness and the soft light enhances the scene
Atousa (7123) 2011-10-17 2:12
Yes, its beautiful as you yourself mentioned.. it is also impressive with good natural colors.. poor trees! nothing hurts but truth!
Best regards, Atousa

Good discovery to the dead mangrove, clear to show the remnants of woods, nice blue sea and sky in a sunny day, thanks for sharing a fascinating natural view.
mkamionka (29724) 2011-10-23 1:45
very interesting: you say it dried up even if there is so much water around.
The view is very unusual and photogenic. Great idea.
Pleasant natural colors,
very well done,
