Fotoeins Friday in La Serena: February summer sunset

I highlight this month the La Serena-Coquimbo area in north-central Chile, where I lived from 2006 to 2011 after many visits to the area between mid-1990s and the early aughts.

5 Mar – Playa de 4 Esquinas (Beach at the 4 Corners).
12 Mar – Cruz del tercer milenio (Cross of the Third Millennium).
19 Mar – Embalse Puclaro (Puclaro dam and reservoir).
26 Mar – Pisco Elqui.

The shallow J-shaped bay and the 10-km long narrow strip of sand facing the Pacific Ocean is very popular in summer with visitors streaming into town from Argentina, Brazil, and other parts of Chile, ballooning both people- and vehicle-numbers. Always worth spending is time on the beach on a calm sunny morning or on a windy cloudy afternoon. The image here is late-afternoon on a beautiful warm late-summer day in February with the sun setting over the Coquimbo peninsula across the bay.

I made the photo above on 22 February 2006 with a Canon PowerShot A510. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-jtG.

Fotoeins Friday: February Fosanacht, group gathering

(26 February 2017.)

It’s a winter weekend afternoon, and despite the lack of precipitation, those gathered outside gravitate to huts and shacks offering drinks and snacks; note how some are dressed in costume. (I’m almost feeling nostalgic for pre-pandemic gatherings.)

(26 February 2017.)

To kick off the season’s festivities, a costumed bike race goes through Partenkirchen; the race has a lot to do with the best costumes and best decorated bicycles.

Crowds line Ludwigstrasse in Partenkirchen, ready to watch the costumed bike race through town to kick off the season’s festivities. Meanwhile, the guy with blue costume and blue sneakers takes a call.
