The Jinotega Series1- Repairman

I was strolling the streets of Jinotega, Nicaragua looking for photo subjects. Just ahead of me was a gentleman repairing electrical motors. I asked if I may photograph him. With a smile I was giving permission. The result was this beautiful photo capturing him in action.

I have finally got into some serious photography. After weeks of exploring by bus I have selected a number of locations to work with. This means getting off the buses at various locations to photograph. then wait for another bus to get on. This day was very windy. All the rock formations in Nicaragua are volcanic.

I came across the above location that consist of a jagged rock out cropping perched upon a high hill. I used my 70 to 200 lens to  create a close up with more detail of the rocks. There was a dark moving sky in the background. The sky was darkened even more when I processed the photo to enhance the rocks.The foreground trees have that windswept look to them. Thus enhancing the effect of what it was like that evening.

I will close now. So until next time happy trails.
