    I've been posting a lot of images from my recent trip to Ecuador on various forums. (camera specific, lens specific, etc.) I've decided from this point on I will simply post all images of Ecuador here, as they are processed. I hope they don't become boring. Comments (good and critical) are always welcome.

    El Quinche, Ecuador
    EPL-1, 9-18mm

    Well done. Really enjoyed these. The one of the flowers, valley, and mountain in the background is particularly serene. Thanks; look forward to seeing more.
