    Walking through places that no one has walked is an amazing experience. The expedition had 29 adventurers and crossed the Lençóis Maranhenses National Park from north to south for 33 kilometers of areas where not one or a few human beings passed. For four days and three nights we walked and camped surrounded by the most beautiful dunes and lagoons of sweet water in the world. We were able to climb huge dunes up to 20 meters high and dive into ponds with the most different shades of green.

    Story 1

    A very incredible scene to take in. I love the split of the landscape with the water flowing through between the sand dunes. The people make a great use of scale as I'm able to take in the wide scope of the location you are photographing in. Love the wide angle you chose to go with here, Mike.
