Photographer's Note

in the background - the great cotopaxi volcanoe, about 70-something kilometers south of quito. this volcanoe is the second highest summit in the country, reaching a height of 5,897 meters and dominating the landscape of many central (sierra) ecuadorian towns.

the photo was taken from the nearby highland plain (about 3,800 meters) in the typical weather conditions of ecuadorian highland december: fast moving and changing cloud cover, a rather difficult photographic light to say the least.

the motorcycle just happened to be there at the time. as it turned out later, it belonged to a local kichwa tribe's herdsman tending their cows in the park (more about 'dem cows later).

hope you like the sight.

cheers,
k.
