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

Santiago de Compostela is a city of Christian pilgrimage. All roads lead to Santiago de Compostela. The entire city is organized around a tomb, the Sepulcher of the Apostle Santiago.

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 […]
