Earth Day 2010 - Montalbán Valley, Carabobo, Venezuela

It is the first time I post a picture of a landscape in TN. I did this because today is the "Earth Day 2010" and would like to post something that may relate to this day.

This photograph is the valley of "Montalbán", which is the town where I live. The mist covers the town in this picture...

This photo was taken from a mountain ("Cerro La Copa ") near the town, this is a sunrise, in this zone is where I took almost all my photos, is a pretty nice site. Unfortunately urban pressure is beginning to be felt in these places, some homes have already appeared here, where before was wood, now is farming, where before had savannas, are now some ways, even some areas declared as municipal parks have been cleared and desecrated. Furthermore, unconscious people often leave garbage regularly, some creeks have been polluted. It's like watching on a small scale, which occurs at the planet.

Sometimes in silence, I see a sunrise like this ... and I think if it is not too late to stop our tendency to destroy the earth, and destroy ourselves with it.

I hope that this "World Earth Day 2010" will serve to sensitize more and more people on the need to preserve our environment ... "We're inside, we can not continue to destroy a world in which we live" ... I see government agencies, private organizations, schools, children, people ... many who care about the planet, the climate, the welfare ... but also many who forget what is important to conserve and make a conscious attitude.

Hy Jesus
I really like the mood from this picture. It remembers me the trips in the mountains.I like also the sun rays falling from the sky to the layer of clowds: quite misthical atmosphere.
My kind regards,

hello Jesús

very beautiful atomosphere landscape photo and i can tell
(for me) is one of the most beautifuls of this kind of photos,
i love the POV you choosed where we dominate the valley,

the mountains, the clouds in the sky and over the valley
with the sun and its rays with the landscape silhouettes
are all together giving the beautiful atmosphere effect,


p.s. for coming few days i'll be absent from TN

Quiet, memorable and peaceful!That's the fealing here!
Best Regards,
George Veltchev

Hi Jesus,

You should post more of your landscapes! This is very beautiful and the mist makes it very atmospheric. I love the clouds over the mountains and the rays of the sun shining through. I would like to see a sunrise like this.

Hi Jesus , a beautiful landscape photo , very nice atmosphere of peaceful mystery.

I also appreciate your note and thoughts for Earth Day.


Hola Jesús

Un bonito amanecer en Montalban y tu deambulando por esos parajes. Has conseguido el sosiego necesitado con esta foto. Buen trabajo.

Aqui no se aprecia tu malestar por la presión urbana y si una tranquilidad enorme. Tanto en tus parajes como en los nuestros pasa lo mismo, cada vez hay menos campos que disfrutar y la gente en vez de cuidarlos, los destruimos.
Queda aqui tu queja inmortalizada.
--Un saludo Antonio

Hola Jesus! Amazing landscape. Wonderful mist. Superb light and shadow. Good contrast. Original work. Well done!

Hi Jesus,
very beautiful landscape with the corner of sharp silhoueted images of silhouetted trees.
the thick clouds give this shot an attractive view.
Very special shot for a special day.

Hello Jesús,
A fine evening landscape depicting a small part of our planet that still has the ability to support a high biodiversity if we cease to destroy the natural environments.
World Earth Day 2010 can hopefull work as a reminder that we have a heavy responsibilty and this image is well composed with fine lighting , the rays of sun from behind a cloud maybe being symbolic of rays of hope!
Thanks and have a good weekend,

Hello Jesus,

I like your composition and lighting very much.
Due to its low light is like a painting.
