A view of Ilha Grande's northern side, on the way to the famous Lopes Mendes beachIlha Grande, off the coast of Brasil, has wonderful nature spots, and the beaches on its northern side are world-famous, in particular the beach known as Lopes Mendes. To reach it you have to either take a boat or make a long walk. We decided to walk, and this is a view from the path leading to Lopes Mendes. It's shot with Nikon's amazing 14-24 f 2.8 mm, and my Nikon D700. The lens is heavy and bulky, but the quality makes it worth to lug it around!
