Guarapari is a well-known tourist destination in Espírito Santo, known for its curving black sand beaches, backed by commercial development. With its heavily built-up coastline, like Vila Velha and Vitória, it caters heavily to seasonal tourists (loud ones, by the way, at least from Christmas until "Carnaval"), and consequently has quite a dramatic seasonal population fluctuation.
Within the municipality there is the Setiba nature reserve, a pristine example of a coastal ecosystem and important for local turtle and bird populations.
The municipality has had European presence since 1585 when Jesuit missionaries built a small chapel and dug a well.
Guarapari has the highest known background radiation of 175 mGy per year.

J'aime beaucoup la tonalité de couleurs de cette image,le bateau apporte beaucoup et des couleurs chaudes dans l'architecture équilibrent parfaitement ces bleus.
Bravo et bonne journée
A nice year 2009

Not only the 2 seconds which gave you a nice blur on the water, but i'm more impressed by the light and the use of the Lee for the sky, that worked perfect here. Light on the buildings is also pretty good, and with some nice clouds on top you have created a very nice shot, i like this a lot.

você deve estar com uma coleção muito boa. Agora, sim, estou vendo bom uso dessa 40D :) A imagem está um prazer visual. O efeito dos 2 segundos na água e os tons alaranjados sobre as nuvens são dois pontos fortes na composição. Dá a impressão de que seu ponto de vista era bem vulnerável...as rochas parecem bem planas e quase ao nível da água. Muito bonita, mesmo!
