316: Tree silhouettes
The Pampulhacampus of the Federal University in Belo Horizonte (UFMG) is particularly large, more than five square kilometers. The faculties, schools and institutes are spread over the green, wooded area. Every day there are about fifty thousand people, equal to the population of a small town, in the campus. Due to the vastness it is sometimes lovely to walk along or through the green areas. Natural forest trails give you the sensation of being in a natural park, far away from the urban noise. In the small forests it is possible to meet small monkeys, or small and medium rodents, or even a large lizard. The picture was made near the main entrance, during a colorful sunset, with the tree branches turning black against a reddish purple sky.
