Upon arrival, we discovered a beautiful gorge where crystal clear water carved the orange rock and clay sediments.
On this occasion, Sony had lent me one of their latest Alpha 700 model, so I decided to test this camera before investing in a digital camera. I also took my Rollei 6006 film camera. Made many images with both cameras, which I printed in large size prints on an exhibit I made in Santiago.
