23rd place (joint)
This is a photograph taken with the arrival of a summer storm, full of lightning and heavy rain. El Morro means "rock or piece of land", this word takes the name of the most notorious and prominent geographical feature in the entire northwest coast of the Dominican Republic. Separated from the mainland by a network of navigable canals within the Montecristi National Park, El Morro is an independent homeland. Its 239 meters high point as one of the larger cays of the Dominican Republic and his impressive form on the horizon is projected over the Bay of Manzanillo.
