I wasn’t really counting on posting today because I’ve had such a busy day, but now the only thing I have scheduled for the evening is relaxing, doing nothing and maybe watch a movie, before doing it, I wanted to upload today’s shot; I don’t know what this things are called, they were hanging from a palm close to where I live.

Have a great weekend!

No estaba contando con hacer este post porque estuve haciendo mil cosas hoy, lo único que tenía planeado para esta noche era descansar, relajarme y no hacer nada, pero antes de empezar eso, quise dejar mi foto de hoy; no se realmente cómo se llama esto, es un racimo de algo que encontré colgando en una palma cerca de donde vivo.

Feliz fin de semana!

Day 151

Hey People!

Everyday is better than the last, and we’ve had amazing days lately!

Salento, Circasia and Filandia are the places where we’ve been today.

They are small towns located in the center of the coffee region and they offer lots of things to see; Salento is the oldest town in the coffee area, so when you arrive there, you feel like you have travelled back in time.

These 3 towns have main squares called “Plaza de Bolivar” which are surrounded by colorful houses,  churches and different stores where you can see a huge variety of artisan work; there are also viewpoints in each town, from the one in Salento you have an excellent panoramic view over Cocora valley; if the day is clear, from the viewpoint in Filandia you can see an awesome landscape composed by lots of green hills with different tones, mountains in the background, and the main cities of the coffee area, Pereira, Armenia and Manizales; it’s truly awesome that they can be seen from a place which is not that close to any of them.

I promised that this week you were going to get to see a lot of the coffee area, that’s why I’ve been posting more than one picture.




We still have one day left and we will make the most of it.

Now I’m very tired and I’ll go to rest, but wish you a great week.

I’ll be catching up soon with you guys soon.

Cada día se pone mejor que el anterior, y eso es mucho decir porque hemos pasado increible!

Salento, Circasia y Filandia son los lugares que hemos visitado hoy.

Son pueblos pequeños que se localizan en el centro de la zona cafetera y en ellos hay muchas cosas para ver; Salento es el más antiguo en toda la región, y al llegar allá casi se puede sentir que se ha viajado atras en el tiempo.

Los tres pueblos tienen plazas proncipales, “La Plaza de Bolivar”, que esta rodeadas por casas muy coloridas, iglesias y tiendas donde se puede encontrar una variedad gigante de artesanias; también tienen miradores con unas vistas espectaculares; en el de Salento se puede ver una panorámica espectacular del valle del Cocora; y si el cielo está despejado, desde el mirador de Filandia se puede apreciar una vista espectacular, un paisaje compuesto por muchísimas colinas con diferentes tonos de verde, montañas al fondo, y las principales ciudades del eje cafetero, Pereira, Armenia y Manizales; es increible  que haya un punto desde donde se puedan observar las tres al tiempo.

Prometí que esta semana iba a mostrar mucho más de la región cafetera, y por eso es que ultimamente he puesto más de una foto en cada post.

Todavía nos queda un día juntos, y lo vamos a aprovechar al máximo, por eso me voy a descansar, ha sido un día largo y estoy muy cansado, les deseo una feliz semana!

Day 120


I found this buch of small fruits hanging from a palm; I was curious about what kind of palm it was, after investigating a little bit I found that it was a canary island date palm.

They can grow until they are 30 meters high, their leaves can be 3 meters long and have about 80 leaflets on each side of the central rachis.

They are ornamental plants that can be planted anywhere in the world where the temperate is warm.  It can also be planted in cold areas, where the temperature goes down to -10ºC, but they will need an special care and protection.

Their fruits are oval, yellow and orange and they are about 2 cm long and 1 cm diameter and containing a single large seed; the fruit pulp is edible.

Before I finish this post, I would like to thank to Miranda Wieczorek and Spyder Creations Photography, who have given me an award for my blog.

Encontré este racimo de pequeños frutos colgando de una palmera, y me dió mucha curiosidad saber qué eran y de qué tipo de palmera provenían; después de investigar un rato, encontré que era de una palmera canaria.

Las palmeras canarias pueden crecer hasta alcanzar una altura de 30 metros y sus hojas alcanzan los 3 metros. Estas palmeras son ornamentales, se peuden plantar facilmente en cualquier parte que tenga una temperatura cálida, aunque con un cuidado especial y mayor protección pueden plantarse incluso en zonas donde la temperatura baja a -10ºC.

Sus frutos son amarillos y naranjas, ovalados, no superan los dos centímetros de largo y uno de ancho, además son comestibles.

Day 89

Hi Everybody!

Lately I’ve been posting very late and going away for a couple of days, and the reason is that I have some friends visiting me and we’ve been going out and getting to know different places, so I’m coming home late and very tired; today we did nothing but relax, went to the swimming pool, talked and had so many laughs together.

The day ended up with such a beautiful sunset, as the day was cloudless and the sky was blue, the sun painted the sky with beautiful yellow tones. I wanted to get the silhouette of a palm tree against the setting sun and frame them in the middle of some trees; that’s how it came out.

Exif Data:Nikon D5000 ; lens:  Tamron AF 55-200; 200 mm, ISO 160; f/9; 1/200s..

Hola a todos!

Ultimamente he estado actualizando mi blog muy tarde y yendome por algunos dias, la razón de esto es porque unos amigos están visitandome y nos hemos estado saliendo a conocer diferentes lugares, por eso llego a la casa tarde y cansado; hoy no ha sido la excepción, pero lo qué hicimos hoy fue muy relajante, disfrutamos de un día en la piscina, hablando y riéndonos mucho.

El día terminó con un atardecer espectacular; como en toda la tarde no hubo nubes, el sol al ponerse pintó el cielo con unos tonos de amartillo espectacular.

Me acerqué a unas palmeras, las enfoqué y traté de encuadrarlas en el mediop de algunos arboles; todo a contraluz para llegar a una silueta que se ve claramente en la foto.

Datos de la foto:Nikon D5000 ; lente: Tamron AF 55-200; 200 mm, ISO 160; f/9; 1/200s.
