Photographer's Note

I was walking around the areas of Alvorada Palace, that is surrounded by Parano Lake. This big artificial lake was created to supply the city with its waters and electricity, but at same time to give it air humidity because during six months of the years Brasilia has an humidity similar with the deserts, as you can see in this dead grass in FG.
The lake has many long branches and when the city begun to grow it was necessary to build more bridges to cross it and the most beautiful of them is JK Bridge, created by architect Alexandre Chan in 2002, with 1.2 kilometers and receiving an international prize because the project. The bridge has three big arches positioned in different positions. A pity I had no time to visit the bridge and take better photos, this one is not good and the nocturne view was a deception.

Eu estava caminhando prximo ao Palcio da Alvorada, que rodeado pelo Lago do Parano. Esse grande lago artificial foi criado para dar a Braslia gua e eletricidade, servindo para aumentar a umidade do ar durante a poca das secas.
O lago tem vrios ramos e quando a cidade comeou a crescer foi necessrio erguer mais pontes e dentre elas a mais bela a Ponte JK, criada pelo arquiteto Alexandre Chan em 2002, com 1,2 km de extenso e formada por trs arcos posicionados em posio diferente. Por conta do projeto ele ganhou prmios internacionais. Uma pena que no pude visitar a ponte por falta de tempo e esta foto distncia no das melhores, sequer a vista noturna prestou.
