The beautiful beach of Parnaioca is one of the most isolated beaches throughout the Ilha Grande, State of Rio de Janeiro (Big Island). Facing the Atlantic with its yellowish and thick sand has violent sea is deep, with little shadow in its 1000 m long. On the west end, flows the river Parnaioca is a charm, forming a small lagoon beach. In the heyday of Parnaioca, its river was once much more massive, to the point that it was impossible to cross it in times of heavy rains.
There is no lighting grid in Parnaioca. In campsites energy is provided by electric generator. The cell signal is very weak and often non-existent. A place to be "unplugged" fully interacting with nature, without the distractions of modernity.

Plage de rêve, la présence d'un personnage dynamise la composition.
Il est bien difficile de détacher son regard de la composition tant la beauté des lieux est superbe.

this view is beautiful and fascinating and you are presenting this place in an excellent way through your photo and note. I love the bold colours and the way you moderated the strong light, it's brilliant but not disturbing and you have allowed details and textures stand out so well. Your composition is deep and interesting, layers of interest succeed each other and give us a sense of discovery. Sea and sky look so relaxing. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
