Photographer: Rafael Tobar
In my trips to Cauca's mountains and the coastal regions, I found scenes worthy to be perpetuated in photography. Here are some that will show you the matchless typical landscapes and scenes of life of the people at these beautiful colombian regions. I took these pictures in black and white. I illuminated them, trying to remember the fantastic colorful and amazing reflections of light that my eyes caught when exploring those places.
The exuberance of these places is amazing.
Human been seems small before
the spectacle of Nature.
Everything in these places declares
life in all its modalities.
Everything wants to live, to grow, to be beautiful. And it achieves that.
Calm morning at Silvia, Cauca. The mist that slept
next to the mountain must go away, because the King Sun has arrived, opening curtains at his step. The wind of the mountain range, that pierces the bones, suggests us to go to take a little hot coffee, with pandebono. (Bread made with corn flour and cheese, delicious!)
El Tambo, Cauca. Constructed on the same edge of the mountain.
Whom was the idea to build a town on the spine of the mountain? It is a single and long street going upwards, and it finishes at " La Cuchilla del Tambo", (the Blade of the Inn), historical place because there was rid one of the most decisive battles of independence.
Matting of the Cuerval.
