Some time ago, I had the pleasure of sharing with you a report made in Germany on the exploitation of lignite, a source of energy extracted to power stations. There emerged some photos of a certain pictorial beauty, yet the disadvantages associated with this human activity are numerous, pollution, disappearance of villages and farms.
Echoing this release, this new report in Argentina I wanted to highlight the wonders of nature that over several million years has worked to offer us a fabulous show. Names of towns and villages that transport us even before knowing the places. Tilcara, Purmamarca, Huichaira, Maimara … They are located in an area located in the provinces of Salta and Jujuy in northwestern Argentina. In a dry climate, the colors are revealed as soon as the rising sun hits the mountains around us. In Purmamarca, the “Cerro de los Siete Colores” hill with 7 colors, takes the role of cinematographic decorations in cinemascope and technicolor. Incredible combinations formed by a complex geological process that results from sedimentation of seas and rivers. The hill is so called because of the various pigments acquired by the minerals that make up the sedimentary layers.
