Re: Great shot!

Yeah I know, it looks like an old book's photo right?
My friend (also named Paulo) is a professional photographer and he loves B&W shots.
I really, really like the way it came out!
Be good buddy!

good to see you back in nature! (I didn't even think it got that cold in Brazil at such a relatively low height.)

Re: Yes,

Every year between early may and late september! Cold!
Not "I can't take it!!!" cold, but cold for sure...
At 3pm we had to pee on one of the four corners of my tent so it could let go of the ground, it was frozen with it!
