A snake in my photo bag

This was one of those afternoons in which I went to see the Moon and the planets Venus and Jupiter sunset over the horizon. Getting to the most interesting places is not always easy, you have to make a path that does not exist loaded with bags and backpacks of material. I went with my friend Jose Luis, he is also passionate about these kinds of moments. We got to a good place, we left the bags on the ground […]

Santiago de Compostela: The Windows

The begining of the trip: Santorini (Thira), Greece

When I arrive to a new city or area, I like to take a look around. Usually, the cities are designed for the inhabitants and for the activities that they developed. So, if you pay attention you can understand it. I like to go to the highest point in the area, from where I can see the landscape. From there I try to recognize the terrain locating the strategic points for every community: water, food sources, defensive needs, communications, garbage […]

Mount Olympus

Climbing the mountains produces many wonderful sensations, Mount Olympus offers one more to reward the effort of climbing it. It is a mountain of legends. On each edge you can imagine some of the adventures that mythology tells that happened there, and at each break the view looks for shapes in the landscape that could inspire those stories. It is also a climb for the imagination. Starting the climb before sunrise offers the magic of seeing the mountain fill with […]

Barrel of oil found in Elafonisi, Crete (Greece)

It is not uncommon for some ships to dump garbage into the sea or clean dirty tanks when they are distant from shore. Sea currents, or storms or tides end up dragging the content to the beaches, making the location of the polluter almost impossible. Other times they argue that they “lost” the load in bad weather. Ironically this happened the day before Earth Day, April 21, 2006 at Elafonisi Beach: “The Amazing Pink Beach Of Crete”. The island is […]
