A personal selection of photographs with their stories.
A colorful sunset always appeals to the imagination, anywhere in the world. Sunsets from the attic window, from the balcony, from a hilltop, on the beach, or, as in Belo Horizonte, along the margin of Lake Pampulha. Belo Horizonte is built on countless hills and slopes, and therefore only few flat spots are to be found within the city limits. Lake Pampulha is one of such locations. Therefore, the road along the lake is very popular among cyclists who don’t have to climb challenging slopes here. The path along the bank is also suitable for inline skates. Hikers like me would rather prefer to pause an instant, in order to watch the fascinating color show during a sunset. The vivid red and orange hues in the sky are here reflected in the water.
