An area of completely pristine forest. Every one of those dots is a tree crown, around 20-30m across. The scale is staggering. The trees continue past the horizon in every direction. This is completely undisturbed rainforest, as it should be.
I love the way the river splits and reforms.
It's around 20km long, and it's taken less than 5 years to make. It looks like a pustulent wound inflicted on the forest. Smoke billows from a patch where trees have recently been cut.
That ox-bow lake is what the water colour ought to be like. The sickly yellow colour of the main river comes from silt, sediment and run-offs from the many gold mines nearby.
