La Casa del Arbol in Banos, Ecuador

"La Casa del Arbol" is a tree house with a giant swing in the Ecuadorean Andes. Even though I got chased by dogs on my way up, it was well worth the hike from Banos for this breathtaking view!

1/160s; 18mm; f/9.0; ISO 100

I have also posted this photo on my blog.


This would be such an awesome view from the swings. Such a fun and great shot.

I'm a bot. I detect haiku.


Wow, that is one hell of a swing!

This is probably the only mall in the world I actually like. The Larcomar in Lima, Peru is on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean and at sunset you can see paragliders flying overhead. Additionally, Peruvian super chef Gaston Acurio has a restaurant in the mall.



Wow, that sure is an amazing mall!

The Dead Valley Merida, Venezuela

Legend has it that in this valley a man died as a result of the cold many years ago. That is why it is called Valle El Muerto due to his death, in addition his body is buried in that valley adorned with stones and a cross. It belongs to the Sierra de la Culata National Park of the State of Merida, Venezuela.

This is the peninsula of Macanao, with its desert climate and its extensive and exuberant beach of La Restinga in the Caribbean Sea, it is a beautiful place to visit and be in contact with nature, because to walk all day on the beach without finding another person and enjoy collecting seashells, my wife loves it ....



Thank you so much for your participation and this wonderful entry. Have a great Sunday. Tomas

This imposing rocky mountain, is known as the dome.
It is a mountain composed of rocks of metamorphic origin, which is found at about 4200 meters above sea level. It presents rocks like schist and gneiss.
It is an attraction a little undervalued in my city, maybe for the distance and to be on a route, not very touristy, if not typical of hikers.
You can reach it, through a beautiful crossing in the valley of Mifafia, where we will observe numerous lagoons, moraines and peaks.


Camera: FUJIFILMS JX 200
Location: El Domo, Mifafi Valley, Merida, Venezuela.


Thank you so much for your participation. Kindly stay tuned for the winner announcement coming soon. Tomas

Thank you so much for your participation. Have a great Sunday. Tomas

The Canyon Itaimbezinho in Cambara do Sul, Rio Grande do Sul - Brazil.
This is one of those places where you just need to sit and contemplate; without being busy with cellphones, apps and everyday life duties. Its vastiness make you think about the great creations of nature. I'm sure this is a part of Brazil that not many people know.

Thank you @czechglobalhosts, this place is indeed amazing, and this particular canyon there's a trail that follows the river on the bottom. It's called "Trilha do Rio do Boi"

This is a photograph I took in the Anzoátegui state. The landscape is a view from "El Pertigalete". Pertigalete is a locality of Guanta in the state mentioned above. As you can see the landscape is extremely beautiful and it is a pleasure to be able to observe it.


Love that sky!

Today I want to show you a beautiful landscape: Laguna El Morro. It is located on the Isla de Margarita - Venezuela. It is a beautiful lagoon accompanied by a large cactus. I had the pleasure of contemplating it for a few minutes and it was really lovely.


I sure have to make to Venezuela one day.

One of the most famous beaches of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) is Ipanema. The photo shows the beach in a sunny day where hundred or thousands of people were enjoying it. At the background of the image there are two hills, which are landmarks of the city. The one at the left is called Pedra da Gávea and the other Dois Irmãos (Two Brothers), since the two hills look like twin brothers.


Alta Gracia, in the province of Cordoba, Argentina was once a large ranch operated by Jesuits. It was also the city where Che Guevara was born and we can still visit his house.
Around the city, statues who tells the story of the town.

Que grande, subiendo una foto de Alta Gracia! Me voy a fijar si tengo una buena de Córdoba para poner sino creo que pongo una del sur. Saludos desde Rosario!

This is the Wanda mine, in the north of Argentina, almost on the border with Brazil, there are precious stones of every color but the most beautiful thing is the nature that surrounds it.

Going for a walk this late in the day is tough, especially with the Pumas about. I'm in the pampas but have to get to the hills before dark. Personal photo, photo taken by human on my back. Note some of the most famous scenery in the world (of course in Patagonia, South America) in the background. Time to catch up to my friends...

The Caribbean is one of the natural paradises that the universe gave us, it can give you beautiful sunsets as powerful storms, I took this image in the university where I study, as I always say, it is a privilege to study in a place where you have these beautiful landscapes.

I took this picture about ten years ago on the island where I live (Margarita) on a trip I did with my father, we wanted to go around the whole island. This place is called Playa Galera, that day was not a weekend otherwise hundreds of bathers would be there.

Bay of Juan Griego Margarita island Venezuela. This bay is located in one of the most popular cities of the island Margarita in this area are the most extraordinary sunsets on the planet but this time I wanted to share this photo that shows this view of the bay in the fishing area of ​​the city. This picture was taken with my Samsung cell phone.

This photo was taken from a ship in the winter of 2015 at "The end of the World”, the Beagle Channel in Tierra del Fuego, Argentina. This is the southern place in the world besides Antarctica. Frizzing and extraordinary place. On the horizon you can appreciate the end of the Andes Mountains.


The Mucubají lagoon lies between 3625-3655 meters above sea level in the Sierra Nevada Park, in the state of Merida, Venezuela. It is one of the largest in the region. It is believed that the name of the lagoon is due to the way it was named by the indigenous inhabitants of the region. Mucubají means in this language "site of the great water".


Nice pics friend. I upvote you.
