Photographer's Note

View of Leonsberg’s big mouth located at Atlantic Ocean. Two wonderful, wide and muddy rivers are joining together here just before arrive to the Atlantic Ocean. Left side is Suriname River and right side is other beautiful Commewijne River.

Commewijne River : (Sranan Tongo: Kawina-liba) is a river in northern Suriname (estuary located at around 5.9° N 55.083° W).

It originates in the hills of Commewijne District and flows northwards and enters the Atlantic Ocean together with Cottica River.

It has a river basin of 6.600 km².

Commewijne River was known in the 16th and 17th centuries as "Camaiwini" and "Cammawini". Today's name "Commewijne" is probably derived from Arawak words "kama" (tapir) and "wini" (water/river).

I was in the boat at New Amsterdam shores during these horizontally taken two photos. I never mentioned stitching them before but I decided lately, just hour ago.
