I got a chance to return to Canaima National Park this weekend, I had a great time! I went to one of my favorite places called Jasper Creek or Kako Paru in the indigenous Pemon tongue. Kako Paru means river of fire, named by the indians due to the color of the jasper polished and carved by the action of the water.

|Taken:||Sunday, 18th April, 2010|
|Focal length:||12 mm|
|Shutter speed:||6 sec|
|Notes:||Manual Exposure, using a sturdy tripod with a ball head,cable release with mirror lockup, bubble levels on the head to ensure proper camera horizon alingment. The day was overcast and I used a Cokin circular polarizer to remove the glare from the water, making the jasper visible, and to ensure full saturation of the amazing colors. Basic contrast and very slight vibrancy adjustments in Lightroom, and sharpening in Photoshop CS4|
