Photographer's Note

In the rain forest there is an area where they have giant trees with giant roots that look like the the "flying buttresses" of the churches in Europe. Though the giant redwoods in California are taller, these trees are a sight to behold. This one on the photo has a width of about 30 feet at the base. The root starts tapering out about 50 feet above the water. Once you look at 3 or 4 of them lined together, you cannot see beyond anymore. Another view is posted in my WorkShop, Giant Roots. It is unfortunate that the tour guide does not know much about this tree. Green algae covers the flood waters of the rain forests bottom floor.

Also look at my postings in TrekLens Faces & Images of the Amazon River.

PP Work: Adjust levels control; Adjust saturation; Sharpen; Crop; Frame; Reduce image size for posting.
