I start my participation in TrekNature with the tree which marks the Brazilian shoreline, especially in the Northeast, for its abundancy and beauty - the coconut tree. When we look at Ilhéus' coast, we see a big line drawn by those trees, although the city is known as the land of cocoa, but that's another story.

Bem vindo ao TN caro Fabiano.
Legal essa sua tomada de baixo pra cima no coqueiro.
Um abraço e até breve.

Hallo Fabiano and welcome to the Trek Nature community. I trust you will have a most pleasant stay and that you will enjoy the interaction amongst the members. We have one of these coconut trees in the back of our garden that also carry some lovely coconuts at the moment. Next time I look up into the tree, I'll imagine myself being on the Brazilian shoreline. I like the way the blue sky with its fleece clouds play hide and seek between the branches of this beautiful coconut tree. It is a very basic, yet very eye-catching shot, as the colours and detail are natural and without make-believe. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Fabiano,

Ola Fabiano,
Welcome to TN!
You make a good start by a fine capture of a Coconut palm as seen from below to show tha heavy cluster of coconuts. The sharpness, lighting and composition of the fronds against the sky are excellent.
I hope you will enjoy being with us and I look forward to seeing many more photos from you!
Thanks and best regards,
