I haven't seen any pictures since I've been browsing this forum from this part of the world so I thought I'd share some. I recently was on a business trip to Manaus, Brazil and had the opportunity to take an Amazon River tour. Here's some of the pictures I took.

The first one is just after we started out on the tour and went a couple of miles out. The river really is as big as they say it is!



The next three pictures are what is known as "The Meeting of the Waters". It is where two different rivers meet to form the Amazon and actually flow side by side for about 5 to 6 miles without mixing together because of a difference in temperature, density, and velocity. In the third picture you can see where they are finally starting to mix together somewhat.








The next picture is one of the shoreline.




I took many more pictures, but this is probably enough big files for this page! I know they're not technically perfect, but they kind of give an idea of the magnificence of thisamazing river.

Nice shot's - the first/second/last one are just great, it's really incredible that this is "but" a river, looks more like the sea.

And don't sell yourself to short, (imho) their real good. - Ronny

Amazing is the right word to describe that river. Great shots of it I enjoyed the series.

Jimbo, that was a wonderful treat, I didn't realize the two rivers did not mix right off. Your photos definitely show the interface. Thanks for sharing such wonderful photos.

Enjoyable photos, glad you posted.
