Water over a milky way


Paramos are high Andean mountain ecosystems located in Venezuela, Colombia and Ecuador. Cities like Bogotá, capital of Colombia, depend mainly on water from these ecosystems to supply with water to more than 8 million people. I took this picture while studying mountain tapirs in Puracé, National Park, south western Colombia, some years ago. I liked the beautiful colors of the vegetation and, of course, the transparency of the water while flowing over a milky bed of sulfur from a nearby volcano. I wanted to share it as my first post for Watery Wednesday.

  5. Welome to Watery Wednesday !!

    Very cool shot. I love the way the water looks milky, but when you enlarge it, you can see the rocks and riverbed through the clear water..

  6. The paramos must be amazing. I love this unusual scene - at least it would be unusual here. I've never seen a stream like that.
