Chile - The Beauty of South America!

Having been blessed to travel extensively,
one of my most beloved locations in the world is Chile!!

In 2007 I made a two week trip to the region and fell in love with the people and places I found!

In light of the massive 8.8 magnitude that struck Central Chile this morning Southwest of Santiago,
I wanted to take the time to compile a photo tribute to one of the places I love most!

As you enjoy these photos, please take the time to offer even a small prayer for the safety and well-being of the Chileans as they endure further aftershocks and look to begin the clean-up process!

Kyrie Eleison!

I have found you at last...or you have found me:) I loved your contribute to Chili and I will be praying for them. What ever kind of camera that was- it takes beautiful pictures but more importantly, the photographer did a swell job! I love that you have so many friends from all over the world. Don't the cultures just enrich your life? I hope you are good friend. Love you.- Ash

Did you take those photographs? If so you really have a gift, they are lovely. I was watching some of the recent news footage of this evening, my prayers go out to the people of Chile. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you SO much! I did indeed take all of these. I'm definitely an amateur but I certainly love photography! (And when you have a place like Chile to photograph, how could you not! :) )
