Photographer's Note

I took this picture last sunday, in the village of Choron, estado Aragua, Venezuela.

Crossing Henri Pittier Park, forty minutes drive from Maracay, there is one of the nicest villages on the Venezuelan coast: Choroni. This is a trip you enjoy from the very beginning, while you drive through the misty tropical forest, which by itself makes this journey worthwhile.
The name of the village is in honour of Santa Clara de Choron.

But the enchantment of Choron does not remain only in its streets, houses, large windows, rivers, affluents and beautiful beaches. Also their people radiate the warm that invites to share in this village.
Between the cultural manifestations are the ardent touch of the drum, with its exciting rythmical figures of the black dance.

Handheld with Image Stabilizer (IS), about 6:20pm, good weather.
Cropped, contrast, resized for TE and sharpen.
