Looking Back - Misty Mountaintop

September 28, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Another of my series of photo reflections from Ecuador ...

This is another of those images that captures the high sierra in Ecuador. The scene is from an overlook above Puluhahua (0° 1'34.82"N  78°28'54.64"W), into this ancient volcanic basin. The entire area would fill and then empty and fill again with clouds in a matter of minutes, the clouds flowing by us. It was one of those scenes where I stood there thinking to myself, "This is amazing - I can't believe I'm here watching this!"

My goal with this image was to create a scene that felt like it was pulling the viewer in, that you could image yourself there, reaching out to touch the clouds. The green farmland acts like a pathway, pulling the viewer through the scene towards the mysterious mountain in the background that is partially hidden in clouds.
