Excelente foto! Composição também! Cores magníficas...
Segundo informações o Ipê roxo pode passar dos 35 metros e o amarelo é menor, como diz em notas, algo em torno de 7 metros!
Muito obrigado por citar meu nome...

This is a beautiful image Carmem. I like the colors and composition a lot.

Very well done and thanks for posting

O céu ficou muito bonito, contraste da árvore (Ipê) contra ele é ótimo. Você tem de voltar lá quando estiver florido.
Cores em geral muito boas.

Grande Carmem, magnífico.

Cores fortes e vívidas. A gradação do azul no céu é um espetáculo.

Belos tons de verde.


Linda foto

Beautiful picture with lovely colours and good composition.

Hello Carmen,
A beautiful contrasty capture with the most amazing blue sky! The low angle of lighting really makes the tree stand out in this lovely composition

Grande foto, com cores admiráveis e ângulo perfeito.
