A street shot taken in La Candelaria, the 17th locality of Bogota, Colombia. It´s a historic neighborhood in the city's downtown, the equivalent to the old town in other cities. The architecture of the old houses, churches and buildings has Spanish Colonial, Baroque and art deco styles. It houses several universities, libraries and museums.


Going through the Uyuni desert is quite the experience. We get to see some amazing scenery and encounter some cool animal that north American don't normally see. Say hello to my new friends the llama and the flamingos.


This is Iglesia, one of the departments of the province of San Juan, Argentina. It's one of the places I like to go the most. One of the things I like the most in the world is the mountains, especially I'm very attracted to the Andes, which are those that are seen in the distance.

Margarita island- Venezuela

The margarita island logically has countless beaches. absolutely all precious with a different touch that makes them unique and unforgettable. Playa bella vista is one of them; from a small boat photographed these birds, in a spectacular sunrise!*


Espectacular fotografía. En el momento indicado.

Today I bring you this shot from when we made the crossing to Roraima, it was already our fifth day of hiking already back, and the weather was gentle with me to be able to take this shot, I had to get a little ahead to capture my wife and sister in the photographic composition. To think that we were two days and nights at the top of that stone mazizo.


The "Parque de la Amistad" located in Lima (Peru) is a very famous place for its attractions, but especially for its large 29-meter mosaic arch that symbolizes friendship. It's a replica of an arch that the spanish community gave Lima in 1924.


Night view of the Paseo Colón beach ,in Puerto la Cruz, Anzoátegui State, Venezuela. In the distance you can see the colorful lights of Cerro el Morro that can be seen in all its splendor.

One of the highlights from our travel in South America came on our schedule in the first days and it was Torres del Paine National Park. When you are looking at Towers of Paine from the distance you know it is an amazing place, so we couldn't wait the next day to go closer to this majestic mountains.


My favorite sunsets are still these, on the same beach that I came from as a child with my family. Now I bring my daughters to throw rocks into the water, and after much laughter we sit down to watch the sun go down. La Guardia (Venezuela) continues to have the same charm as it did so many years ago.

In the Venezuelan Amazon there are many rivers of transparent waters and mysterious aspect like this, although I bathed placidly here I couldn't help thinking that at any moment the famous anaconda would appear around there


Pirate Monument, in Paseo Colon. Venezuela. It is a prominent tourist attraction in Puerto la Cruz, visited by children, youth and adults, who frequent the place to take photos with the pirate, and keep them as souvenirs. At the back about 150 meters away is the beach, there is also a walk that serves many people to walk, jog, or just have a nice time.

On the way to the Jose Ribas Refuge


This is the place where visitors who will delight looking closely at the spectacular Cotopaxi volcano in Ecuador, will complete some information, buy for the hectic day, especially water, sweets, as part of the team, they also receive a talk where they will explain in a simple way and necessary, on the National Park, as its fauna, flora, soil damage due to residues of volcanic lava. There is also a souvenir shop and a cafeteria.

This picture was taken few days ago on my visit to AkwaIbom state, Nigeria. While inside a moving commercial vehicle I saw this amazing church and decided to have a capture of it . The weather was perfectly sunny and bright which made it more magical.
