Photographer's Note

I love all the mountains, much more than beaches, and specially when they are colourful. It is why I liked utah and Arizona so much, with the red rocks. But even more I am fascinated when the mountains are multicoloured. I saw photos of Painted Hills, here on TE, but unfortunately I didn't know about them when I was in US West coast. My dream is to go to Chine, to Gansu Province, to see Danxia (see here). I have no idea how to get there and who would be so crazy to go with me. When I see a possibility, I will go there.
But I saw some photos of similar mountains in far corner of Argentina, near the borders with Chile and Bolivia, and I went there, 1800 km of Buenos Aires. it was the most expensive part of my trip but it was well worth. Wow, the landscape there was really stunning. Would you go there? Is my photo inviting?





Cerro de los Siete Colores (The Hill of Seven Colors) is one of the hills bordering the Quebrada de Purmamarca which is in turn is a western branch of the Quebrada de Humahuaca up to Cuesta del Lipán, in Jujuy Province, Argentina.
Its unique color range is the product of a complex geological history including marine sediments, lake and river movements elevated with the movement of the tectonic plates.

The village of Purmamarca is at its feet and the two form one of the most recognized landscapes of Argentine Northwest and all of Argentina.
