Mountain pond, Santa Marta, Colombia

While photographing in the Santa Marta range, I asked a Kogi Indian if he could
show me some places to photograph birds. After a short walk we reached this
pond and he stopped for a short prayer and tossed a bunch of mambe (coca)
leaves into the pond. He asked me to do the same. We continued walking and
he told me that the Kogi believe that every time you receive something from nature
(like the images we take) and donīt offer a small sacrifice and show gratitude,
natureīs color fade a little and loose gloss. I try to remember that every time I go
out photographing.

Wow, how true - I'll remember that as well; thanks for sharing.


OTOH, this is a wonderfully processed image, composition is especially pleasing . The pattern on the water near the rocks in the foreground is similar to the shape of the reflection. I can actually feel the quartz veins that are running though the rocks that are leading into the picture. very nicely done.

Great how you were able to capture both the rock detail underwater and the reflection of the mountains on the surface of the pond.

A very distinct probability that ALL should consider when out and about in nature. Back in the 60s, Zager and Evans said it best about humans, "He's taken everything this old earth can give and he ain't put back nothing,"
