Photographer's Note

Here is the Andean skyline revealed first by a gap in the forest and, second, by a gap in the clouds. The location is the Bellvista Cloud Forest lodge in the Andes west of Quito at 2,300m elevation.

The picture was taken in the early morning (the exif data is for GMT) and the image has not been desaturated. This is the natural lack of colour seen by the camera in the mist. I thought it looked rather neat with the natural framing and the high distant snow-capped peaks. The intervening forest ridge adds to the bleakness of the mountains.

Happy Christmas to all TE people. Alan
