Another capture from the inside "Buraco do Padre" (Priest's hole), now showing just the waterfall. Please observe that the river waters came from a hole in the rock wall. I´t a pity that I don´t have any super wide to show you the entire hole where I was taken this picture, because "Buraco do Padre" is a 360 degrees hole inside the rock with this waterfall inside it. There is a passage on the ground, where the river goes on its way ahead. I´ll copy and paste now the information note I´ve posted with the first picture a couple of days ago:
"This is the "Buraco do Padre" (Priest's hole), situated in the region of "Campos Gerais", second plateau of Paraná State, around 1 1/2 hours by car from Curitiba, in Itaiacoca, Ponta Grossa.
It´s a perfect hole in the middle of a huge rock formation. The water falls from the middle of the rock wall, where there is a hole almost on the top.
Buraco do Padre is an underground amphitheater 30 meters wide and 43 high. The waters came from the river Cerradinho, to fall in this spectacular view.
The name "Buraco do Padre" came from the Jesuits history in the "Campos Gerais", where they used to came to meditate. The indians, observing the Jesuits, denominate it "Buraco do Padre" (Priest's hole)."

Hello Jose,
Lovely capture of waterfall.Colors,POV,details,sharpness and effect of slower shutterspeed are excellent.

Bonjour Jose
C'est une très belle prise de vue avec cette belle cascade qui coule parmis les rochers,très belle compositon,avec de belles couleurs et de jolis détails.
Merci et au revoir....JP

Hi Jose,
Very nice shot here. Colors and detail look excellent . Nice soft effect from the slower shutter speed. Well done!

Nicely done, Jose. Great subject and composition. I'm not sure what was around it, but as a guy who is somewhat claustropohbic, it seems just a little bit "tight" especially because of the dark colors.

Hola Jose,

Good picture here of this great fall! Good shutter speed to get this softness in the water. Maybe the water (in the center of the image) is a little bit OE but it's not a big deal! Nice pov and colors! Good job and TFS,


Grande Zeca, realmente o religioso tem um belíssimo buraco... a foto é maravilhosa. Para ficar perfeito só encontrando uma caranguejeira durante a expedição...parabéns lucky man.

Hola José,
Muy linda foto con una interesante nota. a pesar de no tener un gran angular en ese momento, creo que es una buena muestra de ese maravilloso lugar, y que has logrado una bella foto. Me parece curioso, pero aquí se dice buraco en vez de agujero en el argot porteño (lunfardo le decimos aquí); no sabía que es de origen portugués.
