DescriptionI have wanted to visit this beech wood for a long time, but the trip somehow always seemed to get postponed. Now, after a brief visit, I can see what has attracted so many others and will go back there again and again.The forest is unique; it grew over the lava flow from the Croscat volcano and is dotted with small hills of variable sizes, known locally as tossols. The high temperature lava flowed over a wetland, evaporating all moisture upon contact. The steam entered the lava, distorting and eventually cracking the partially solidified crust. The result is the varying bulges on the landscape we can see, covered with fragments of basalt.
Marc Garrido, Barcelona Member Since February 2009 Artist Statement When I was Young, after begging a lot, my parents bought me my first camera. I did a lot of photograph: at home, on holydays, playing with my friends… anytime was a good time to shoot. However, it was a relief for parents' economy that I left the camera almost forgotten.
With the arrival of digital cameras I get back to my hobby, but wasn't till I get my current job that I do start seriously with photography. My job requires me to travel far and wide, and of course I could not leave the camera at home.
All started with some Sydney photographs done by a partner. After seeing the results achieved with a good camera and a wide angle lens I couldn't resist to buy my first DSLR. Then came hours and hours reading about photography, more hours of practice, purchase of photographic equipment and back to the reading. So far I still have a terrible desire to continue learning and enjoying this wonderful art.
After some years behind the camera I think that I'm qualified to say that what really excites me is studio photography, especially still live compositions and always with a very personal standpoint.
