“A large drop of sun lingered on the horizon and then dripped over and was gone, and the sky was brilliant over the spot where it had gone, and a torn cloud, like a bloody rag, hung over the spot of its going. And dusk crept over the sky from the eastern horizon, and darkness crept over the land from the east.”
― John Steinbeck, The Grapes of Wrath
Los LLanos, Venezuela
One of the most beautiful regions in Venezuela is “los llanos”, those huge plains where only the horizon stops your sight. Both, the vegetation and the fauna are full of beauty. Several ecosystems will make a trip to this region an unforgettable one.
|I missed the last Sunset Travel Theme from “Where’s My Backpack” so I was very pleased That it came around again. Throughout my travels I have been fortunate enough to have seen some of the most brilliant sunsets. Like clouds for me, I am often spell-bound by what nature is able to produce.. simple yet complicated, heart stoppingly beautiful.. and a gift.. yeah you heard me. Absolutely free.. ours for the taking. So take I did (photos).My favorite sunsets are seen from the mountains or near the ocean or really any body of water. Possibly due to the connection of cloud formation near water and elevation, they are some of the most stunning sunsets I have experienced. Here are a few sunsets I have collected in the past couple of years in Venezuela. I hope you enjoy.|
“There’s a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they’re absolutely free. Don’t miss so many of them.”
