03 Oct La Gran Sabana, or the ‘Lost World’
[pullquote]Remote and wild, the Gran Sabana is one of the most fascinating areas i Venezuela[/pullquote]
Lying on a plateau with an average altitude of 1,000 meters above the sea level and home of the Tepuis (the table-top mountains), the Gran Sabana is part of Canaima National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1994. To visit the Gran Sabana I took a local organized tour, crossing the wild by 4×4 down to Brazil and back. Along the road, we stopped several times to admire the many waterfalls and, a couple of times, to have a bath.
I felt sometimes overwhelmed by this amazing wilderness and fascinated by the ever changing sky and the almost unique light embracing the landscape. I tried to capture the colours of the sky and the strong emotion I felt while crossing this wild landscape.
I wish I were a better photographer and I hope I could transfer at least a little of this amazing, wild beauty.
