Bogota's Symbol

By Potra  
A view of the Colpatria Tower (the same one reflected on the puddle) from the cable car that reached the top of the Cerro Monserrate.
Photographing Bogotá is very challenging because of the white fog that covers it most of the time.
Thank you so much for your warm comments on the fountain. It was an interesting shot because I wanted to get the sparks like Moira called them!
PS: Things here are very somber, many young people being killed by the police... Sad

Me too, Marian -- so sorry to hear about the violence against the young people.
This is a nicely composed shot. I'm glad you mentioned the fog -- I almost thought you selectively colored this shot.
A brilliant image with great attention to detail excellent capture. SmileSmileSmileSmile

Don't let it get you down, Marian - just keep yourself safe.
A camera can sometimes attract unwanted attention.

Excellent picture today.

Why the continual fog.....
Is it natural or due to man and his industry

The Colpatria Tower stands out so well with the foggy overview.
I also like the trees and grass in f/g - a symbol of life and a contrast to the grey.
I'm sorry to hear that things have not improved.

Great contrast between natures greenery and man made grey. Which your composition has emphasized perfectly Marian. Keep safe.
