Weekly Photo Challenge: Lines of the Andes Mountains


The Weekly Photo Challenge is Lines

“Nature creates curved lines, while humans create straight lines.” ~Hideki Yukawa

In Mendoza, Argentina, we followed straight manmade lines along the road which wove into the Andes Mountains. We headed to the boundary of Chile and Argentina, 4000 meters high.

Erosion carved wiggly grooves and furrows into the rocks.


Scored
into the rock, bands of rock like fences reminded me of demarcation lines.

Empty ski lifts and snow fences rolled like a highway over the bare ground.
Ribbons of multicolored calcium deposits flowed over everything in their path.
Silhouettes of clouds traced the contours of the mountains.
Colorful streaks outlined the variety of rock formations.
Hairpin curvy roads and wrinkled rivers mirrored one another.
Passages and lines galore, the Andes were a sight to behold!
