Cotopaxi Volcano in the Morning
Cotopaxi Volcano in the Morning

I rode my bicycle here from Quito where I started my South America tour. It was quite difficult climb, from 8,500 feet up to 12,000 feet elevation with with terrible riding conditions. The air is thin and found myself constantly grasping for air. At this time, in April, the weather changes rapidly. I’ve had to stay for several days to get some images of the beautiful Cotopaxi. This image is right after the Sunrise, just before the clouds moved in.

I spent a few days riding around Cotopaxi National Park. It was cold and rainy but I didn’t mind it at all. I felt like I was the only one in the World.

Banos, Ecuador is one of the most popular tourist destination. It offers many activities around the City and nearby. The weather is very unpredictable in April. The only time I got up to the top of one of the mountains opposite what locals called the Mother Tungurahua Volcano to photograph the City of Banos, I’ve was given a double Rainbow.

Tungurahua Volcano last erupted was in 2000. It has spilled some lava and lit up the night sky for 5 days. The entire populations of Banos have been evacuated for a whole year. Tungurahua Volcano is truly an impressive sight to see.
