Photographer's Note

My region is located in a climatic borderline between the tropical and subtropical zones. Sometimes the winters can be very hard and to bring big damages to tropical plants, pastures and plantations. When I was a kid the winters used to be harder than they are today, anyways at each 10 years my region has a winter stronger that the usual. This was the case of this last winter when we had many frosts and even frosted rain, almost snow.
Here we can see a plastic water reservoir covered with frost, this day it was around minus 3 Celsius.

Minha região está localizada numa zona climática fronteiriça entre zonas tropicais e sub-tropicais, sendo assim nosso inverno pode por vezes ser severo, trazendo grandes danos às plantaa tropicais, às pastagens e às plantações. Quando eu era criança os invernos eram bem mais fortes. A cada dez anos a região sofre com um inverno mais forte que o normal, este ano tivemos um inverno bem rigoroso com geadas fortes, chuva congelada e quase neve.
Vemos aqui uma tampa de caixa de água coberta de geada numa manhã em que tínhamos temperaturas de cerca de 3 negativos.
