Amazon


Sunset on the Amazon, between Tabatinga and Manaus, Brasil, February 2010

Again on our voyage down the Amazon on local mixed cargo-passenger ships. My last weeks Sky Watch Friday was from the same trip, but on a different boat.

For me one of the most beautiful places on earth.

For more Sky Watch from around the world, drop in to Sky Watch Friday.

I dream of traveling the Amazon someday. Your photo makes me dream all the harder!

THE SKY’S A MOST WONDERFUL THING

The sky’s a most wonderful thing,
Within it some strange creatures sing:
The angels and such;
But dragons? Not much—
They’d rather breathe fire and take wing.
