Lencois Maranhenses dunes FG0010.jpg
Lençóis Maranhenses dunes. State: Maranhão; Brazil. Between January and July the dune fields are flooded by a near infinite number of cold and crystal lakes. During these months it rains constantly and the soils become saturated and standing water accumulates on the surface, forming ponds up to 100 meters ( 300 feet ) wide, which merge with the perennial streams and lakes that dot the landscape. Between August and December ( photo ) the lakes get dry.
