Photographer's Note

One of the most popular tourist attractions on the island of Boa Vista is a shipwreck located along the Coast of Good Hope (Costa de Boa Esperança). The wrecked ship was called Cabo Santa Maria and even if it looks ancient, it was stranded here just in 1968. I will show you a closer view of it later. In this photo you can find it as a black dot along the beach in the distance. This was quite an impressive panoramic view in a real life but there was a mist hanging over the area which made it difficult to capture an interesting photo. I am not a big fan of shipwrecks and I was more interested in other destinations but this was part of the tour and I am glad I had a chance to experience this place. I read in few different sources that in the past this area was dangerous for tourists with some cases of violent attacks, but I think this is the matter of the past. We drove through this area on quads, which added an aspect of adventure to this trip but sine there were few of us it was more difficult to stop for photos every time I would normally do.
