14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Gabriel en la ventana
Photography performs at the top of Monte Roraima (tepui located in South America, on the triple border between Brazil, Venezuela and Guyana), in a region known as "la ventana" (the window). The place presents a curious phenomenon. In the early hours of the day the chasm is practically cloudless, open for contemplation, when then it is possible to see all the forest and some waterfalls that are below. As the hours go by and the sun becomes more intense and scorching, the clouds will come and cover the whole abyss, giving us a warm feeling that we are near a gigantic mattress made of cotton candy!
