Sunrise on the Rio Palotoa

by Wout Salenbien

As part of my PhD research at Duke University, I examine the link between biodiversity and the geosphere through the fossil records.  This means I get to travel along the Amazon river during my field season to look for fossils.  During my latest trip, I was staying in an indigenous village deep in the Manu Rainforest Preserve.   This photo was taken one morning at sunrise along the Rio Palotoa in Peru.
