JULY 2007: Tree stump
This tree stump was found in the immense dune landscape of Lençóis Maranhenses, in the state of Maranhão. It is not common to find such a stump in the dunes, because the closest group of trees was some hundreds of meters away. The tree had died here, or something, someone had dragged it to this location? With time, the stump will erode further, by water and the sand storms. The photo appears to be a bit hazy, caused by plastic foil that covered my camera against tiny sand grains. Those grains might intrude the smallest holes of the camera and eventually cause irreparable damage. Covering the camera in plastic was an excellent solution, albeit sometimes awkward when the foil was not fully stretched with the opening of the lens. However, the haziness added some mystical effect to this picture.
