My contribution to the contest is this image taken at the deep forest in the Azorian Archipelago, more specifically in the biggest island, Sao Miguel.

Azores Islands are located in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, between Europe and Northamerica, and have a continental climate, so rainfall is a constant, which is necessary for the laurel forests to be as lush as the one in the picture. This forest surrounds the 'Lagoa do Canário' (The Canary Lagoon)

My last travel to Ilhabela - Jabaquara beach 🏖️

I learned after a while that jabaquara means Refugee in Tupi Guarani language.

And its indeed a great refugee. Low cellphone signal. No wifi. Very Remote spot, that you need to go to southern part of island, more than 8 km on a dirt road or by boat.

A pleasure green day, with lot of nature, 2 rivers on each side of beach, slackline, green grass, Silence, and a great spot for snorkeling and standup paddle.

We spend all day long there, bring our drinks and food and aways remember to bring back your trash.

Bellow the Beach overview from road when you are arriving there by car and the beach view.

Thanks a lot for the mention! Happy for my work to be considered.



When I see or hear 'Green day', the first thing that comes to my mind is Recycling. Why? Let me explain...

Yes, the word green is associated with nature, but with technological and economical progress our nature suffers a lot. Many products that we use are harmful to nature. Furthermore, the production of some of the products negatively affects nature. A lot of plastic that we use every day goes to the ocean, and ocean residents eat it and then die.

I try to use less plastic by myself, and I am always interested in different projects that are aimed to save the planet, keep our planet green and friendly. And, these days I see some plastic recycling machines in Korea. Of course, not everyone uses them, and the number of such machines is much less than the amount of plastic we consume, but I think even a small effort, even a one recycled pet bottle plays a big role!

And I think it will be really awesome if there will be at least one Global Green day in the year, when everyone avoids using plastic, clean the roads from the trash, consume less water and electricity.

Wonderful interpretation of the theme, bravo! :)

My night mooN photography


These are my entries to the theme "Green Day" - photos from my latest trip to Austria, at the Magdalensberg mountain hotel:

img_0.7350076602730999.jpg the hotel is on the top of this green hill

img_0.5821120489001813.jpg there's a huge metal statue of a bull guarding the entrance

img_0.17023088219108387.jpg the grass was green & cows were white

That beautiful day, the clouds were low & constantly changing. In any direction I looked there were green hills & valleys & high mountain peaks in the distance above the white pillows of clouds & fog.




I can think of few places greener than the Bamboo Chathedral inside the Ankasa Forest in Ghana. In the far western corner right on the border of the Ivory Coast is this rarely visited forest. These photos were taken in 2011 when I visited there. I wold love to get back and see it today, and hopefully this time get to see the elusive forest elephants.

Indeed an amazing place where green prevails! Great entry!
