zdenekhavel: What a great place this is! 😊 This view

What a great place this is! 😊 This view of Lago di Livigno is spectacular, especially if you can witness it during the golden hour πŸŒ… when the lake reflects the colorful sun light. There are not many places in the Alps πŸ—» I like more than Livigno. This Northern Italian village, sitting at 1816 m above the sea level, has an unique atmosphere. The high altitude makes it one of the best places in Europe with a snow-assurance β›„ even during warmer winters. But this season they certainly don't have any problems with snow, or warm weather there πŸ˜… Having the opportunity to come to Livigno once in a while for skiing is simply priceless. Anyway, I would be interested what is you the most favorite location in the Alps?😎

zdenekhavel: The exotic paradise of Ilha Grande 🌴 Being now

The exotic paradise of Ilha Grande 🌴 Being now back in Europe experiencing our "normal" winter makes me think about the great time I had on this island.😊 Unspoiled beauty of the Atlantic ocean with all attributes of paradise - exotic flora, crystal clear water, nice and somehow slow-paced people and not to forget diverse fauna 🐦 Talking about local animals, I have a puzzle for you. Can you find two birds on the picture? 😎 Let me know in the comment section below. Don't forget to keep exploring 🚢

zdenekhavel: What a great sunrise at my most favorite

What a great sunrise at my most favorite Ilha Grande's beach πŸŒ… Which one is it? I will keep that for myself as I don't want to spoil it with too many tourists πŸ˜„ I missed this place very much so I am happy I will be able to spend a few more days there in February with my girl. I can't wait! πŸ™πŸ™ One the other note, I took a small break from the Instagram over the holidays. It was nice to step away for a while and focus on more important things in my life, my family πŸ‘ͺ I am well rested now and hopefully it means that I will be able to work on my pictures more consistently since I have many pictures I want to share with you which require some attention πŸ˜… Anyway, Happy New Year everyone! 🌠I hope that 2018 will be even better than 2017 for all of us. Never forget to keep exploring 🚢 as you never know what may you find out πŸ˜ƒ

zdenekhavel: Calm dusk on the Ilha Grande 🌴 The sun

Calm dusk on the Ilha Grande 🌴 The sun is setting down behind the Brazilian coast πŸŒ… This little boat was sitting on the water as a lone guardian of the harbour. It was truly a magnificent view. The mist which covering the mainland coast adds so much to the whole atmosphere 🌁 I wish that moments like this never end. I would really like to stay in this moment forever. Beautiful place and perfect timing. I love Ilha Grande 🌴 What is your the most favourite island? Let me know below and as always, don't forget to keep exploring 🚢

zdenekhavel: Deep and mysterious Atlantic rain forest 🌴 in the

Deep and mysterious Atlantic rain forest 🌴 in the tropical paradise of Ilha Grande is protecting its highest peak, Pico Papagaio πŸ—» which sits almost thousand metres above the sea level. If you want to get to the top it is highly recommend to hire a guide as it is the most difficult hike at the whole island 😎 The peak itself is accessible only with climbing ropes and only for those with at least a decent fitness level so it is not for everyone. Have you ever hiked a thousand vertical metres in a tropical jungle? Let me know below 😊 in the meantime, don't forget to keep exploring 🚢

zdenekhavel: Yet another beautiful sunset over the port of

Yet another beautiful sunset over the port of the main city of AbraΓ£o on Ilha Grande 🌴 I don't know if you have noticed it but I have published a picture from the very same spot a few days ago. The only difference is the time of the day. I can't decide with one I like more, the night or the sunset picture. The night photography has something special. I love to shoot in the night. Not many things are nicer than a clear night sky πŸŒ‰ on the other hand nothing can conjure colours on the sky as sunrise and sunset. This is a simple frame but I think it proves it very well 😊 How do you feel about it? Which one do you like more? In the meantime don't forget to keep exploring 🚢

zdenekhavel: Ilha Grande is a magical place 🌴 especially during

Ilha Grande is a magical place 🌴 especially during the golden hour. Everyone knows about the turquoise ocean 🌊 and white beaches but the third wonder of the island is the pure and unspoiled rainforest - Mata AtlΓ’ntica 🌴 I am in love with this place. It gives me so much energy just to be there. It is a perfect place to wander around as there are many beautiful trails to walk and hike, some of them are easy, some of them are not. Nevertheless, I think it is a perfect place for adventures minds πŸ˜ƒ Anyway, I wish it wouldn't be so far from my homeland in the Central Europe 🌎 I can't wait to be back. Hopefully, it will come soon enough. It is a place worth exploring 🚢

zdenekhavel: Finally! I had some time to put together

Finally! I had some time to put together panoramas I took in the tropical paradise of Ilha Grande. This is the first one I would like to share with you 😊 A long time ago I have posted a mobile shot of the same photo. You can check it out in my gallery. Now is the time to share the "real" picture! Lopes Mendes is a stunning place. The turquoise and warm Atlantic ocean meets the white sandy beach full of palm 🌴 and 🌿 almond trees. This view never gets old.Β It was kinda difficult to get to this view point but it totally worthed it as you can see 😊 moreover, as I always say don't forget to keep exploring 🚢 Anyway, I hope that in the future Instagram will allow to post wider pictures so everyone will be able to post panoramas. This panorama is originally 12630x4210px so I just had to shorten it from 3:1 to 1,91:1. I hate that. It looks so much much better when it is wider πŸ˜… Let's change it Instagram!

Waves rolling over 🌊 stones at one of the Ilha Grande's secret gems - Santo AntΓ΄nio beach, the so-called little sister of the bigger and more famous Lopes Mendes beach🌴. I admit this photo has been adjusted quite a lot, but that is the beauty of photography. You are creating an art and the only boundary should be your imagination, and I like this picture very much πŸ˜„ What do you think about that? Do you prefer realistic view or you think that art has no limits? Let me know below πŸ˜„ and as always, don't forget to keep exploring 🚢

The night sky πŸŒƒ over the village of AbraΓ£o, the main city of Ilha Grande 🌴 I love the night sky. I was trying to capture it very often last few months and it all started here. My first night on Ilha Grande. The mountains πŸ—» you can see on the other side the form the coast of Brasil which is several kilometers away. It is a lovely view which I will never forget, especially because I had someone special there with me, πŸ˜„ never forget to keep exploring as you can find beauty everywhere 🚢 _bra _brazil _world_photo _world_colors _shooterz photography_exclusive photography photography earth _places _perfection _earthpix _pictures _shots _shots

zdenekhavel: A hidden gem of Ilha Grande πŸ’™ Santo AntΓ΄

A hidden gem of Ilha Grande πŸ’™ Santo AntΓ΄nio is the little sister of the much bigger and much more famous Lopes Mendes. The trail to the beach 🌴 is almost hidden and it is much more challenging than the ordinary hike to Lopes Mendes. Do not go there on foot during the raining period! It might be impossible without ropes and very dangerous indeed as it is steep and muddy πŸ—» Fortunately, during the South American winter it is much easier. You are rewarded with empty beach and beautiful scenery after the hike. There is even a little creek slowly moving its waters to the Atlantic ocean πŸŒ… What a paradise on the Earth. Never forget to keep exploring 🚢
