DECEMBER 2006: Natural mirror
Belo Horizonte, capital of the state of Minas Gerais state, is over four hundred kilometers away from the nearest beach, in Rio de Janeiro. But there is a large artificial lake just outside the city center. This lake, Lagoa da Pampulha, was created in the forties of the past century. Architect Oscar Niemeyer became world famous with his works along the margins of this lake. In winter, when virtually no rain falls roughly six months, there are few clouds to be seen in the deep blue sky. However, in the Brazilian spring, there are sometimes large cloud formations to see. The great diversity of shapes and types of clouds are ingredients for fascinating cloud formations, which are reflected in the still water in the lake. An interesting natural mirror of clouds.
