Amazon River photo

10 beautiful and fun photos of the Amazon River.

If you haven’t noticed, I love water. Every time I do a post for this 10 Friday Photos series, I seem to pick something related to water or at least include a lot of pics with water in them. Perhaps that’s why Martyna decided to do one on deserts last week, to balance things out a bit.

If I can’t get to the ocean, my next choice for enjoying nature is probably heading to a nice river. I thought I’d make this post 10 beautiful photos of rivers from around the world, but ended up finding so many cool or beautiful Amazon River photos that I decided to just make it an Amazon River post. Enjoy!
