Photographer's Note

not much: just light, some textures, some gravel, some dirt, some poles, sparce vegetation and cotopaxi volcanoe all shrouded in clouds in the background. the light actually is NOT painted by the known fotoshop technique "paint with light", but rather is a result of the sun protruding through a small opening in the clouds. we were lucky we had stopped the car right before the light came in. a moment later it was gone and a few minutes later we were in a hail-storm... by the way, the road you see in the photo leads to the cotopaxi refuge area's parking lot at the altitude of about 4,500 meters. the foto was made at around 4000 meters while the refuge is about 300 meters higher than the parking lot and accessible only on foot.

ps. the photo looks much better at pixel sizes of 1000 and higher. in the 800 pixels: many texture details on the foreground get "squished" together.
