Photographer's Note

I hesitated in posting this as it is not up to my usual standard of sharpness. But the colour and mood were too attractive to ignore. Hand held, probably because the fence was not camera friendly with spikes rather than flat ledges. Until 2014, the Nile River seen here was thought to be the world's longest river at 6,693 Km. "The 2014 study claims that the origin of the Amazon can be traced to the Cordillera Rumi Cruz from where Peru’s Mantaro River originates. This river then confluences with the Apurímac River (whose headwaters were earlier regarded as the source of the Amazon) and then other tributaries join the river downstream to form the Ucayali River which finally confluences with the Marañón River to form the main stem of the Amazon River. However, critics of this measurement point out that the study has not been published." The conventional view is that the Amazon is 6,436 Km.
