At the bar


On the sofas, Virginia, Pascal and Jacob who was an awesome guitarist entertaining everyone at the fireplace in the evening. He was a funny guy. He arrived the evening before with no reservation and said “Please, please can I stay. I am ok to sleep on my yoga mat. I really wanna stay here, I have heard so great things about Casa Elemento I had to come!”

The pool water was so still that we could do amazing shots with the reflection. I copied what another photographer Sebastian was doing amd got some of these shots.DSCF5527

I asked Fabio to jump in front of the pool.


Later the sky turned pink and it was nice to see the moon in there.

There were pink rays in the sky towards the end, photographers were all on the lookout, taking lots of shots, totally amazed about that sky.
