I really like this artists carvings showing things trapped in a block of wood. Eerie yet beautiful, imo. The artist is Tung Ching Ming.

Tucked away in the Fernando de Noronha archipelago (Northeast Brazil, Atlantic Ocean) is Baia Dos Porcos , also known as the “Bay of Pigs,” one of the most awe-inspiring beaches to experience. The myriad of blues meddle in perfect harmony on the still water filled with rock formations, including the iconic “Dois Irmãos” rocks which means the “two brothers.” Even better – the beach is likely to be all yours, as it requires a trek to get to, and you have to pay per day to stay on the island, limiting the number of daily visitors. Water sports are forbidden – which means it’s all serenity, all the time. Instead, search for the turtles and wildlife that inhabit the area and find yourself in preserved and natural beauty. The largest Canadian travel agency, FlightNetwork, released in November 2017, a survey of the 50 best beaches in the world. The Bay of Pigs, in Fernando de Noronha, was in sixth place.
