Sunset in Playa Mansa. Dairy. Venezuela
The combination of these magical colors of the golden hour is a sign of the perfection of our Universe reflected through the sunset in our nature, on our beloved Planet Earth. Every golden hour is special and wonderful.

Sunset in Lecheria. Venezuela. I spent a very pleasant time watching this beautiful sunset, this sunset inspired me a lot of peace, calm and tranquility. Every sunset is different and the positive energy of our sun also feels different every day.

Today I want to share one of the most beautiful and extraordinary religious buildings in the historic center of Quito Ecuador, it is the Basilica of the National Vote, with almost 100 meters high, this is one of the most impressive churches in the country, especially for its viewpoint and cafeteria on the top floor, which allows a wonderful panoramic view of the city, causing a spectacular landscape within the city.

Mountains near Santiago de Chiquitos, Bolivia

Eastern Bolivia and Santa Cruz province see almost no tourism, despite the region now being more accessible since the road crossing the province to the Brazilian border has been paved a few years ago. The region features amazing nature though, such as these mountains near the village Santiago de Chiquitos.
