Ó Minas Gerais | My Land Our Landscape #25

Dry Season. Itabirito, Minas Gerais, Brazil.

Mining open pit exploration. The Itabirito peak is part of the state's cultural heritage. It is a unique monolith in the world, containing 94 million tons of ore. It is part of Vale's Pico Mine mining complex and, as a result of years of tipping and hauling, the surrounding mountain range and the monolith have lost its original configuration.
