Enormous poplar trees dwarfed us during a walk in the woods made even better with friends on a long lazy weekend at their farm, near Doñihue, about 60 km south of Santiago de Chile.
It was one of those weekends city dwellers dream of. Well, some of us anyway… Those of us who long to leave the cement of the capital behind and get out into the countryside with friends.
J and G invited us to their farm about 60 km south of Santiago near Doñihue, a rural, flatland area where they grow and dry prunes for export between the Rancagua and the sea.
Not only was it a great time with friends from Chile and Spain, it was also a wonderful photographic opportunity.
It was mid-summer, which meant flowers were in bloom, the fruit trees were about to burst into full deliciousness, siestas were delicious in the height of the afternoon, conversation flowed, and evenings lingered long.
