Drifting on the Amazon

The creeks and rivers act as roads in this part of the Amazon, and people travel by canoe, boat or raft. In the middle of the photo there is a man standing on a raft made of tree trunks. He was the sole occupant of the raft, floating by himself in the rain, downstream to Iquitos. With grey skies and miles of water all around him, it was a sight I will never forget.
