Amazing nocturnal image of Pasto, Columbia (foreground) near the erupting Galeras Volcano.
Finca La Primavera is, like most farms of the area, located on Galeras volcano. What makes it unusual is the thinner, cooler air washing over the land, a result of its astounding position 2,200 meters above sea level. The coffee trees seem to transform their precariousness into a bracing, wind-swept complexity, made all the wiser by the sage producer’s hands.
|For centuries high altitude clouds off the Pacific Ocean have combined with nutrient rich ash from the Galeras Volcano (hidden behind clouds) to nurture amazing soil for coffee bean farms in the Narino (southwest) district of Colombia.|
