The Abyss

The Abyss

The photo used for the blog’s header is a composite panorama (4-5 photos stitched together) from a place called The Abyss in southern Venezuela. This is where the tepui mountain formations of Venezuela suddenly stop, and you can see the entire Amazonia spread ahead of you as far as the eye can see. The vastness of the rainforest is why they named it so.

When we went there, the entire view was blocked by clouds. After 30 minutes or so the clouds started to part and dissolve, and within minutes the wonder was revealed. I took the opportunity to make this photo of my friends, engulfed into the magnificence of the view.

To me, this photo represents what travel photography is all about. It’s about a unique place, it’s about discovery, it’s about having a great time in the absence of gadgets or artificial entertainments, just by going there, just by being there.
