Fotoeins Friday: Up to Southern Brazil’s highest point

Latitude: 25°20’01.3″ South (-25.333695)
Longitude: 48°54’03.4″ West (-48.900934)

My friends have taken me on an afternoon drive west into the mountains which lie between Curitiba and Brazil’s Atlantic coastline. We’re on the Estrada da Graciosa, a picturesque road on Rodovia (highway) PR-410 in the state of Paraná. In the picture above, the view to the northeast from the Mirante (lookout) faces the Serra do Ibitiraquire mountains. At 1877 metres, Pico Paraná is the highest point in the state and in southern Brazil. This area is part of the Atlantic Forest South-East Reserves which in 1999 was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

I made the photo above on 10 July 2011 with the Canon EOS450D, 18-55 IS kit-lens, and the following settings: 1/125s, f/8, ISO100, 45mm focal length (72mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at as
