idden, silently and in perpetual vigilance, you watch both earth and sky, waiting for that perfect, once in a lifetime picture; the majestic, lingering flight of a condor, the sun disappearing behind the Puna highlands. Suddenly you seize your 35 millimeter weapon, concentrate, focus on the objective... and shoot. Time is frozen.. Hunting for images in
the Andean world. Curtains open, sure fingers on the trigger... exploding flashes and multiplying "clicks" in an intense session of photographic shooting; but the ammunition runs out and you have to change the roll. On the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador there are so many sea and land creatures and so many different views that can hypnotize the camera.
Change of scene. Roads full of history, freezing hills, spectacular gorges, terrifying drops in the Andean highlands... and then you arrive to a viewing point thousands of metres above sea level. You raise your lens, point it to the sky and decide to wait for the arrival of the condor, the biggest flying bird in the world and, without doubt, one of those "preys" most yearned for by image hunters that can be captured at the Ulla Ulla National Reserve in Bolivia, or at the Colca Canyon in Peru.
Thanks to its vast geography and great diversity of flora and fauna species, the Andean region is an ideal destination for photographic safari lovers, one tourist activity that has been become more intensely developed in recent years.
There is no fatigue or tiredness in waiting, only the desire to shoot nonstop and so capture the images and shades of a region full of attractions and natural wealth...
