The view from the Andes

We’ve been higher before, no doubt, but this scenery is nothing short of breathtaking. These shots were all taken at a place called Villa De Leyva in the Colombian Andes. It’s somewhat near (4 hours) Bogota, although I’ll be pleased if you can quickly find it on a map. We only spent one day/night here, seeing the town spring to life for a long-weekend festival, then shut down and die the morning after – it’s incredible to see such a remote-ish place become a hub momentarily, then altogether disappear.

I climbed up to the mirador to get a better look at the landscape, and it’s incredible. See for yourself:

I took more shots than I should be posting here, if you’d like to take a deeper dive into the Colombian highlands culture, you can take a look at the shots over here.
