Earth, I Love you.

“The river shown in the photographs is the Caristales, which is located near the town of La Macarenain Colombia , South America .

The river, world famous for its colorful display, has been called:”the river that ran away to paradise,” “the most beautiful river in the world” and “the river of five colors”.

During Colombia ‘s wet season, the water flows fast and deep, obscuring the bottom of the river and denying the mosses and algae that call the river home the sun that they need. During the dry season there is not enough water to support the dazzling array of life in the river. But during a brief span between the wet and dry seasons, when the water level is just right, the many varieties of algae and moss bloom in a dazzling display of colours. Blotches of amarillo , blue, green, black and red – and a thousand shades in between – coat the river.”
