430. Galapagos Islands, Trip of a Lifetime…
In one of my trips around the world to discover our beautiful planet I visited one place, one of those places you have to visit at least once in a lifetime.
My destination was the Galapagos Islands. Here you can watch animals in their natural environment. You find yourself in a large natural park spread over an archipelago on the equator where you can discover wildlife species endemic to those islands.
I assure you that a trip to the Galapagos Islands will change your view of nature, just as it has changed mine. The colours, the smells and atmosphere of these islands are unique.
A true paradise for flora and fauna. Distant from the mainland, the Galapagos Islands have guarded for centuries their treasures to bring us a vision, unspoiled and untouched, of millions of years of natural evolution.
Here the laws of natural selection are confirmed. Only discovered in 1535, the Galapagos Islands are now one of the destinations for those who love nature, a paradise for photographers.
Of volcanic origin, the Galapagos Islands are located on the equator. Dots in the Pacific Ocean about 600 miles off Ecuador’s coast.
I took thousands of photos, I captured the colours and shades of these places but what the camera cannot capture are the sensations that these islands have indelibly imprinted in me. A wild nature, untouched, that we observe with our eyes and experience through our senses. The smells… the sounds… sensations find their way directly to our heart.
If you love nature, if you love to discover the delights of our great planet you have to visit the Galapagos Islands. It will be the “Trip of a Lifetime.”
These are some of the photos taken… amazing animals and unique landscapes, sometimes surreal… made of black sand and rocks which reveals their volcanic origins…
Un grosso bacio
I LOVE YOU
