The wonderful species of the cloudforest are brought together in a wonderful parc which is easy to explore on an afternoon just north of Coban, the capital of the Alta Verapaz and of the coffey culture in Guatemala.
Coban is a pleasant town although it is covered in clouds most time. It has a colonial feel and there is a great coffey-estate just south of town to be visited.

What a stunning scene from wild. Your other coffey photos were also very interesting. Here we see different plants together. Sun beams create very nice atmosphere. Congratulations.

Interesting exotic plants. Nice capture, although as you know, the lighting isn`t very well ;).
Did you go there on the bike?
Have a nice day.

Interesting range of exotic plants. I like the framing and the location. The lighting is a bit strong, but adds a good atmosphere and impact. Good work.

Impressive forest, interesting and nice with these different trees, difficult to take because the contrast of light seems very strong, good result.

The light top right is very bright but it has illuminated the left side of the frame beautifully. There seems to be a wonderful array of plants from the flowers on the ground right up to the trees disappearing at the top.

The light gives the sense of searing heat as it angles through the the trees to warm and ripen the coffee beans.

Amazing sea of greenery. Quite different than our European forest. Thanks for sharing. Regards.

Hi Gerrit = once again a fascinating forest, it's not difficult to imagine dinosaurs roaming in it, the light angle is a challenging one, good detail in shadows in any case, and the bright spots are not completely lost.
