I hope everyone had an awesome Christmas. We’ve been in the remote areas of Chile for the past few days and I haven’t been ‘connected’. Those of you that know me would know how weird that is. It was kinda nice frankly. You should try it. Especially during the holiday.
So, we travelled south on a luxury bus to Los Angeles. (Not the one with the freaks in it.) This is where I spent my time during my first visit 11 years ago. This area, particularly the ‘campo’ (rural) area just north of this city of 180 000, called Peñaflor, is my favourite location in the world. So far anyway.
One day we went to the coastal twin cities of Conception and Talcahuano.
Feel free to comment below.
Talk to you soon,
A rich harvest of ‘mariscos’. The fisherman’s family will eat another day.
A typical small fisherman.
The bread(s) down here are the best in the world. No really. So, so good.
Nothing quite like fresh fish.
Talcahuano is a very busy harbour.
Typical large fishing boat.
Another view of one of the harbours in Talcahuano.
A study in heat. Combine southern, summer sun with black sand and you have a recipe for a large batch of ‘pie del fuego’.
Where the mighty Bio Bio river meets the epic Pacific.
Playa Rocoto. Google Map it.
The Grotto at Playa Rocoto.
Forget the technical aspects of photography. Sometimes ‘it was pretty’ is more than enough reason to capture a moment.
Talcahuano is a very important commercial fishing port.
