We were really looking forward to returning and we did it, a Fototrekking at Cerro Piuquencillo 2010. Pablo Jeffs, our teaching director, returned after two years teaching some courses at a couple of universities in Ecuador and there was the opportunity to share his knowledge in an environment majestic and privileged.
As always, the day started very early and our driver took us to the place where we would start the three-hour walk until facing the intense landscape of Cerro Piuquencillo and its similarity with the Mont Blanc mountains.
Enthusiasm and a lot of desire to walk and learn are the words with which we could define the group of participants with whom we share this Fototrekking in the Cerro Piuquencillo 2010, a very intense day on the mountain.
Many fauna: Condor (Vultur griphus), Fox (Lycalopex griseus), and even the elusive Chinchemolle (Agathemera crassa) along with the mountains of the Andes near Santiago gave us a lot of unique and unrepeatable photo opportunities.
Among the techniques learned we worked with exposure compensation and sweeping technique to follow animals in movement. An intense day of hard work, but with many satisfactions.
That year was quite cold and the snow remained for quite some time in the Andes Mountains, but the images and the warm memories will remain forever in our retinas.
