It seems that our time in Ecuador went by and, before we knew it, we were packing out and on a plane leaving. I often liken such times to a roller coaster - the approach to the half-way point can be tedious, slow, and stressful. Suddenly you hit that mid-point and the remaining time rushes by you.
We were greatly blessed during our time there and take with us many wonderful memories and lots of new friends. For me as a photographer, it offered me several opportunities to grow and develop, trying new things, and broadening my horizons a bit. I'm going to take some time in the next few posts (after not having posted anything for a long time!) to reflect back on some of my favorite images from our time in Ecuador.
This is one of my favorite images I made during our time in Ecuador. It is taken outside of Otavalo and is of an eagle soaring, with the peak of the volcano Cotacachi in the background.
For me, it captures so much of what Ecuador is for me - the incredible mountain scenery, the clouds, the amazing wildlife. There is something about this image that speaks to the freedom and grace of nature and captures the pride of the sierra.
