Colombia

August 19, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

 Colombia seems like a beautiful, friendly country. Travelling much was not an option, as I was there for work. But even so, I was fortunate enough that "work" doesn't necessarily means "office"... Work, for that matter, also meant driving through the beautiful mountainous area northwest of Medellin, travelling by foot in a small town for hours, and staying there on different times along the day - from early in the morning until late at night. Wherever I went, the camera joined.

 There were some limitations, though. Taking photos "on the go" means that you don't have much time to compose or steady the shot. Some images were taken almost as snapshots, and others I actually took from the window of a moving car (including some in the landscape gallery - see if you can guess which...). 

 Further, it also meant that I didn't have much choice as for the place, or the time of day they were taken. If I was there on a trip, I most definitely would take the time to pass through several more view points, at the more photogenic late-afternoon or early-morning light. I did have some opportunities for that as well, but quite a few images were taken around noontime, with a very contrasty light. Luckily, the green slopes of the mountainous area and the colors of the village provided a nice, colorful subject to shoot with that contrast.

 After some thoughts - I decided to divide the photos into 3 separate galleries, different as the different places they were taken in: Medellin, the Landscape from the drive outside the city, and last - Santa-Fe de Antioquia. Maybe not surprisingly, the first of them to be uploaded to the site was the Landscape gallery...
