Photographer's Note

This is the third image of the same spot you saw before, vegetation hadn't occupied the red soil yet. In the background we can see one of the many small mountain ranges that cut my municipality, they are old volcanic gaps where magna went up when Atlantic ocean was created and Africa was few kilometres far from this same spot.
This small mountains, Iguassu Falls, the red soil you are seeing and the Atlantic were created in the same event.
Remember this spot where the cow is positioned, it is moving around 1.5 cm at each year, going to west.

Essa é uma imagem do mesmo ponto que já mostrei antes; a vegetação ainda não havia ocupado o solo vermelho. Ao fundo vemos uma das muitas pequenas cordilheiras que cortam meu município, elas eram falhas vulcânicas por onde a lava subiu quando o Atlântico foi criado e a África ficava a poucos km desse mesmo ponto.
Então essas pequenas montanhas, esse solo vermelho, as cataratas do Iguaçu e o oceano Atlântico foram criados nesse mesmo evento. Lembre-se que essa terra onde a vaca está se move cerca de 1,5 cm por ano rumo à oeste
