Cidade histórica de Minas Gerais.

(Founded at the end of the 17th century, Ouro Preto (Black Gold) was the focal point of the gold rush and Brazil’s golden age in the 18th century. With the exhaustion of the gold mines in the 19th century, the city’s influence declined but many churches, bridges and fountains remain as a testimony to its past prosperity and the exceptional talent of the Baroque sculptor Aleijadinho. - http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/124 )

Fantastic synth, really enjoy the closeups of the town that allow you to explore the buildings from the position on the hill, thanks for sharing!

This would be a great synth to geotag so you share it's location on the map.

this is a great synth - what camera and lenses did you use?

hi, Fred! Thanks!

I used two cameras: Canon 20D and Canon G9

With the 20D I used 2 lenses: Canon 10-22 and Canon 70-200 F4 L

Thanks canesh - you got some amazing shots with the 70-200 - this synth gives me some ideas for a future synth in the UK/Europe
