Meeting of the Waters: Rio Negro and the Rio Solimoes

I was inspired by a comment made by Abbas, “He has set free the two seas meeting together. There is a barrier between them. They do not transgress. ” (Quran, 55:19-20) on the Water: The Two Colors River post, I found that it’s not only in Laos and Thailand that have the two colors river, but in other parts of the world as well, this one is very profound, it is the meeting of the waters Rio Negro and the Rio Solimoes in Manaus, Brazil, photographs by Global Nomad1 at Flickr.

According to Global Nomad1, the dark water from the Rio Negro gets its color from the humic acids of decomposing forest litter. The muddy waters of the Rio Solimoes originate in the Peruvian Andes, where erosion contributes huge quantities of sediment. The two rivers meet near the city of Manaus in the Brazilian Amazon.

  1. Hellow. In Venezuela, where i´m from, the Orinoco River and the Caroní River produce the same phenomena when they encounter each other.

    Cheers

    1. Hi hectorfran, thanks for stopping by and comment. That is amazing, and thanks for the picture, I’ve learned so much from different parts of the world, one great thing about blogging. 🙂

    1. Hi Pretty Project, thanks for stopping by and comment. This is definitely something different from our everyday, but yet it’s something so ordinary to those that live there and see it everyday, it’s life. 🙂

  2. I agree with whatsinaname, “Nature is wonderful.” And the reason? Because God is wonderful, and he made it! “All things were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made…” (John 1:3)

    Thanks for the beautiful pictures!

  3. i am a great nature lover! that is why i always like looking at nature’s photos, videos and so one. i think that you would never fed up with nature! it is the part of us and we are the part of it. and i completely do not understand those people who say they do not like nature!

    1. Hi jettroll, thanks for stopping by and comment, I guess those that don’t like or appreciate nature is because their basic needs have not been met. I think if you’re lost in this chaotic world, you can definitely find yourself in nature, the wonders and mystery of it all.

  4. Hello Nye, it’s my pleasure to be here! And yes, you guessed it correctly. The names are because of those rivers. Do you like Brazil? I mean, can I know what are your interests? I’d love to be pals if you give me a chance! 😉
