Photographer's Note

Tree tops emerge from a black water lagoon. The Cuyabeno Reserve was formed in the wake of burgeoning exploration and development for oil to protect this part of the complex Amazonian ecosystem. The area comprises of rivers, lagoons and flooded forest.

The reserve is characterized by its incredible biodiversity. Its geomorphology is a consequence of the rivers carrying sediment and materials from the Andes. It is considered to be one of the most biodiverse sites in the world together with the neighboring Yasuni National Park.

Taken from a canoe between paddling!
