"The Black River (Rio Negro)"
The Amazon's Rio Negro has water the color of Coca Cola. It's all organic matter that washes into the water from the great difference in the water levels from summer to winter. I went swimming in it a few times, but have since found out about some really nasty creatures that live in it, and I won't do that again. This picture was painted from photos taken one afternoon when I was just sitting on the back of the boat contemplating the water as the motor churned it up. Notice the reds, oranges, and blues in the churned water.
