Day 101

Hi Everybody!

Yesterday I did a photo using coffee beans, and today while my dad was driving, we saw some coffee fields, so he stopped and I got out of the car to see what I could capture.

Later on, I looked to another side and saw this guadua forest in the top of the hill; if you look up on day 54 you will see the photo of a bridge made out of guadua, and for those who don’t remember what is it, here you go:

Guadua is known as the American Bamboo, and its widely used in construction, people use it to build things such as houses, suspension bridges, stores, churches, cable-stayed bridges and more.

It starts growing from San Angel in Mexico till the South of Argentina, and can be found in some Asian countries.

Colombia, Ecuador and Panama are the countries where guadua is used the most.

I chose this photo because I liked how this coffee field was leading my eyes directly to the forest; and also I wanted to show the kind of landscapes that we have in the coffee area, they are all of course bigger and different, but this shows two importan element that you find, coffee fields, and guadua.

Exif Data: Nikon D5000 ; Lens:  Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55; 30 mm, ISO 200; f/7,1 ; 1/200 s.

Hola a todos!

Ayer hice una foto con granos de café, y hoy, por coincidencia, mientras mi papá manejaba pasamos por un campo de café; el paró y yo me bajé del carro a tomar fotos, y luego miré para otro lado y vi el guadual en la cima de la montaña.

Guadual es un bosque de guaduas, elemento con el que se construyó el puente del día 94, para los que no saben que es, aca les recuerdo un poco lo que había escrito antes:

La guadua es conocida como el bamboo de América y tiene un amplio uso en construcción, sobre todo en casas, puentes, kioskos e iglesias.

Crece desde San Ángel en México, hasta el sur de Argentina, y se puede encontrar también en algunos paises asiáticos.

Colombia, Ecuador y Panamá son los paises donde más guadua se utiliza.

Hoy elegí esta foto porque me gusta como las lineas entre las plantas de café, llevan la mirada hacia el guadual; además quería mostrar un poco de los paisajes que se encuentran en el eje cafetero, que por supuesto son diferentes y mucho más grandes, pero aca se ven dos elementos que siempre estan ahí, y son el café y la guadua.

Datos de la foto: Nikon D5000 ; Lens: Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55; 30 mm, ISO 200; f/7,1 ; 1/200 s.

  1. Love the angles and the composition of this shot. There is an exquisite balance and softness to this image made even more beautiful by the shape and color of the clouds that seem almost to reflect the guadua forest. Absolutely lovely!

  2. This is beautifully composed. The green just pops and the clouds frame the “mushroom’ of bamboo.
    Love the information you share.. I didn’t know they were called Guadua.. 🙂

  3. Beautiful composition, love the texture the coffee plants give it and the bamboo bridge against the blue sky pops out just right. Lots of interesting information too, I had never heard of Guadua either. Being a coffee lover this rates high on my list of great images 🙂
