Seven Day Nature Photography Challenge

Day One.

Ituni, Berbice River, Guyana.

I took this picture while working as the photographer on a three-month expedition in South America.

It was early in the morning and the mist was starting to lift from this beautiful river.  Ituni is a very small Amerindian village in the South American jungle and the only opportunity the locals had to trade the rice, plantain and other goods they had grown, was onboard a boat - a floating market - that travelled down the river once every two weeks.  The pontoon in Ituni had fallen into disrepair and the locals had to use dugout canoes to get to and from the boat, making trade difficult.  As part of the expedition, we helped to repair the pontoon.

On Facebook I have been challenged to post one photograph per day of 'Nature' and will post those pictures here too.
