Photographer's Note

a donkey stoically waiting for the storm on the road to the Cotopaxi National Park.

the photo taken almost by chance - on our way to the hotel I noticed the dramatic looking clouds, but since they meant no chance seeing Cotopaxi volcano clearly, I was in no mood to devote great attention to photographing the view. so even without getting out of the car (yes, exactly like lazy tourists) I opened the window and angrilly snapped this shot with the my compact Canon (excellent camera, by the way). however, once in the hotel I realised that I quite liked what I saw, and we decided that we should get back to the place to explore properly. but I guess the donkey and the storms were offended by our disrespectul initial attitude - during the next couple of days we came back here on 5 (FIVE) different occasions, but there was always something wrong. either the sky was boring white, or the donkey was facing away from us (on purpose, no doubt), or it was simply too dark. at the end this is my only shot of the donkey and his buddies the Storms.
