Photographer's Note

Last weekend I had the idea of taking new photos, but the weather was lousy, so this time it will be something from my archives.

This is a beach named Muro Alto (which would be ‘High Wall’) and this is because of a natural stone formation that extends for about 3 kilometers in front of the shore-line, thus creating a ‘swimming pool’ with very calm water, great for water sports. When I took the photo, the water was about my waist.

The place is in the state of Pernambuco, and located between Porto de Galinhas (you can see other posts here and here) and Cabo de Santo Agostinho.

Although the portion of beach that I show looks rather natural, there are some big resorts (behind my POV) and still worse, a big industrial port (Suape) where a huge oil refinery will be built a little far ahead.

In the workshop you will find two more views of the place.

Hope you enjoy the photos!
