Santa Lucía: The Lonely Walk of a Tired Man at the End of the Sunset

This is the last part, the third, about Santa Lucía. The first part begun in Lagunillas lake, the second was till red rocks and the last part is at the end of the sunset.

There are no much photos at the end, I was tired because my digital camera and my metallic film camera weighted a ton and I considered that accord to the distance to Santa Lucía city it would be dangerous to take more photographs. So I just keep walking a distance approximate of 24 kilometers (14.9 miles) fortunately in the fresh summer of the highlands that’s not a problem; the problem was that my shoes apparently were smaller than my feet (I bought them in internet) and the weight of the cameras and tripod. So now I replaced the big film camera for a compact and plastic one. I love to walk and see, photography is just a register about what I see.

So… let’s see the pics ;-)

I guess that town is a place for exploration of minerals or something like that.

Here I was descending a hill, quickly, the sun was setting so I wouldn’t have much time before the night.

I found the blue flowers of my childhood when I walked also the countryside, they’re lavenders, Aren’t they?

Warm light and blue flowers

I was lost, I felt a bit of cold and decided to rest so took the following photographs without shoes and lying in the ichu (the yellow grass) and my head in a big rock.

And that was my last photo. I recovered the blood in my members so I felt again the warm weather. I was walking some hours more in the highway. Somebody that transported employers to a mine help me in the last kilometers so it was a good decision to stop to take photographs but I could lost more hours. I saw marvelous things in the night, sadly there was no way to photograph without have risked my possibility to arrive to the city, but always there are second chances ;-)

  1. haha, yes, it was quite a long day but I prefer that way the days; instead with the routine in the city I feel that they doesn’t last anything and they are flying so fast with the months and years.

  2. madre de Dios, FR!!! what a pleasant visual shock: all your amazing pix and landscapes look like Iceland between end of May and September… I wanna go there, por favor!!!;-)))

    1. Oh, for that reason I’m not particularly attracted to Iceland, it looks a lot like my home XD. Instead I’d love to see the exotic (from my point of view) French Alps with their white peaks and forests in green pastures. Thanks Mélanie :-)

  3. That’s quite a hike. I love “Long sunset”. The clouds seem to be beckoning the traveler to one point on the horizon.

    1. I was lying in the ichu and saw it, I think that was one of the most beautiful things I saw so I’m happy to have got to share it with you. Thanks for your visit Melissa, I hope everything is well, the summer ends tomorrow :-)
