Sony had lent me one of their latest Alpha 850 model, so I decided to test this camera before I made an investment on a digital camera.
I took my faithful Rollei and the Alpha to a place near Santiago called Yerba Loca, where I had taken photographs of beautiful icicles a few times.
In this occasion it had rained much less than in the previous years. I expected to find some snow or ice, but arrived one day late, and the small amount of snow had gone away. It wasn’t that cold either, so no icicles formed in the water stream, in fact there was almost no water.
Disappointed with the trip, I looked around and found the tainted water with a yellow/brownish color of the earth running down through the dirt road. It was forming interesting shapes, like a cigarette smoke. Many images were made that day.
I did not buy this camera until Sony produced the full frame format with 36 Megapixels years later, the A7R.
This is a special gold version of the original image.

Hometown: La Paz
Based in: Calera de Tango - Chile
Photographer dedicated to portraye Water.
It was late 1955 when my eyes peeped at the city of La Paz near the high Andes. Since then, they have learned by capturing sparkles of light.
The influence of Ansel Adams perfection and the impressionism colors such as Vincent Van Gogh work has forged my technique to pursue the chase of Water and capture its beauty. While visiting more than 40 countries and living in 10 of them, have now settled at the small town of Calera de Tango in Chile.
My work is done using film in a medium format, as well as digital cameras. Capturing the beauty of water in all its forms; denouncing many times the little interest that our civilized world invests in its conservation and preservation. Printing mainly on large size fine art photographic paper, for Color as well as Black & White; lately using ink based printing and fine art digital paper.
Water, an important resource, source of life, and protagonist of my exhibitions around the world, that converge between the look of the paused movement, preserving it for future generations, as is the case of certain images that I took at a glacier that has disappeared during the last 20 years. Other images are non-repeatable due to nature effects.
Started oil painting and playing in darkroom at the age of 10, later taking pictures of what my eyes noticed. Took as much photography courses as I could, forging my technique and creating the Water portfolio. Still continue investigating, learning, and using new digital tools.
