The Campos do Jordão cable car, inaugurated on June 11, 1970, was the first built in Brazil, being today one of the main attractions of the city. Departing from the village of Capivari, it reaches the top of the Elephant Hill, with an altitud of 1800 meters, from where we have a privileged view of the city.

Hello Alexandre,
This looks an exciting trip. The boy in the red gondola is well placed against the green background. The wires and pylons and the trees lining the cable car system give the photo fine depth. Colours and sharpness are excellent and there's a great view of the city on the distant hill.
Kind regards,

Ciao Alexandre, lovely composition with cablecar, wonderful colors, fine details and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Alexandre,
A great view down the cable car on this sunny day. The town in the background looks great and is nicely framed by the trees on both sides.

Quelle vue et ocmpo quel télésiège sueprbe à une place j'avais jamais vu de tel télésiège seulement avec une personne et la végétation quelle montée et vue.
Bravo et amitié

Bonjour Alexandre,

Cela doit être très excitant comme montée quoique cela doit être plus intéressant à deux...juste pour partager nos impressions. Très beau point de vue sur un beau paysage de montagne.

Ola Alexandre,
nice the charmy snapshot with the young boy in the cable car to upload on the mountain.The surrounding greenery make the image even more attractive.


The ascending / descending cable chairs and the view through the trees towards the town on the far side, contributed to the advantageous POV and its depth (in double meaning here) on the scene, Alexandre.
Wonderful and intriguing sight, well collected.
Boa tardes,

Ola Alexandre,
Interesting view of the cable car with the city in the Bg between the trees . Perfect timing and attractive colors.

Olá Alexandre,
muchas gracias por tus palabras, ahora estoy muy bien, aunque no ha sido cirugía urgente, sino programada por culpa de una hernia inguinal.
Me gusta la profundidad de tu toma, que nos permite ver nítidamente desde el muchacho en el telesilla en el primer plano, hasta la ciudad en las colinas al fondo, en una imagen muy atractiva y con colores vivios y naturales.
Espléndido trabajo, amigo.
Um abraço,

  • Great

Hello Alexandre,

Good sharpness and framing with superb color and saturation. It's been a while since I have been on one of these open air contraptions. I did get a ski lift in both Romania and Turkey for views from the summit. Unusual to see single occupant chairs. Tfs!

Witaj Alexandre!
Nice view, cable car makes impression.
The boy looks a little scared.
I like frame and colors.
Well done.
Warm regards.

Hola Alexandre.
Esplendida esta gran panorámica, que abarca una gran parte de la ciudad extendiéndose por la verde ladera, la visión del cable car y un pequeño pasajero visto en primer plano da una gran perspectiva a la composición.
Un color magnífico, que da a la imagen mucha riqueza cromática.
Muy buena gestion de la iluminación y la nitidez.
Bien hecho. Me gusta.
Que tengas un buen dia.
Saludos muy cordiales.

Bonjour, cher ami Alexandre,
Il faut avoir le coeur bien accroché pour admirer l'environnement depuis cette nacelle !
le regard de l'enfant semble un peu inquiet !
Très bonne prise de vue.

Hi Alex
How colourful! A lovely shot taken on a fine day smartly composed by placing the fiery red car at third which has strongly boosted the visual effect tenfold. Well done shot.
Best regards

Hello Alexandre,
Nice capture of this landscape with cable car in Campos do Jordao.
This boy seemingly enjoys his trip !
TFS and best regards

Hi Alexandre,

You have captured well the movement of the cable cars. The point of view is showing the details of the trees and of the cable cars system. The light is bringing out the colours. Have a nice day.

Ciao Alex,not the best place to who suffer of vertigo like me but still a lovely capture with a great view from the cableway on the green,perfect quality as usual.Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

Hello Alexandre,

This is a very well composed photograph, the wires of the cable car creating effective guide lines, whilst the little boy, in his red seat, makes a great focal point. The surrounding trees make a very natural border, helping to steer us into the scene.
It a bright, colourful photograph.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Hello Alexandre,
An interesting landscape with cable car in foreground.
I like the nice colors and the great composition.
Nice presentation

Hi Alexandre,
lovely reportage advertising of of the tourist attractions of this area. The weather was lovely and the colors are nicely saturated. The child on the cable car adds some life to the scene.
Very well done,

Sempre um passeio interessante. Boa perspectiva mostrando a cadeira, a torre, as árvores abundantes e a cidade ao fundo.

Hello Alexandre,
Nice view of the cable car and its young rider. Does this lead to a ski slope or is it just for summer guests? 👍
