The old city of Cartagena in Colombia shines through their brilliant colors and the beautifully restored small buildings. One gets the impression that the entire city has fallen into a paint bucket. The picture was taken April 2014th.
This image is taken on one of the most remote and most bizarre places in the world for me.
That is why the picture is placed to “hidden secrets”.
On the other side of the world, in New Zealand, you can find in the Bay of Plenty this deserted island, about 50 km off the coast of Rotorua. White Island or Whakaari is one of the 3 active volcanoes in New Zealand. The old dilapidated sulfate mine on the unreal terrain and its buildings bear witness to a time the Sulfur was degraded and won under most difficult conditions. A world that seem to be awakened, something between “Star Wars” and “Lord of the Rings” to life. The picture was taken in early November 2015th
