    "Monumento Natural das Falésias"

    Fotografia Aérea com Pipa em Morro Branco (Beberibe, CE - Brasil).
    (Melhor vista ampliada)

    Labirinto de areias coloridas. Há 12 cores de areia, que são usadas na confecção de desenhos em garrafas. Estas falésias estavam sendo gradualmente destruídas pela remoção da areia e por vandalismo, mas agora os nativos supervisionam o local para evitar depredações, e a areia para artesanato vem de outro local. A maior parte da população local vive do turismo, que é a maior força motivadora de preservação.

    Kite Aerial Photography (KAP) in Praia das Fontes (Beberibe, CE - Brazil)
    (Best viewed large)

    This is a maze of naturally colored sand. There are 12 different colors in total, used by the locals for making sand art bottles and other handicrafts. These cliffs were being destroyed from the excessive removal of the sand, but also by vandalism. The place is now being supervised by the locals to avoid more depredation, and the sand used for art is being collected at another site. Most part of the local population now depends on the tourism, the main reason behind the preservation efforts.

      That love declaration in the river bed is the best.

      So this photo was taken from a kite? What a great and clear and very colorful photo from a moving object with a cam attached! Amazing!

      I agree this one is the best of a very good set. We have a similar place in Queensland called Rainbow Beach (not a terribly creative name but a beautiful spot) but it isn't as spectacular as this. It is next to the largest sand island in the world though Fraser Island which is pretty cool. How do you trigger the camera?
