The early morning light washes the deserted streets of Cotacachi.
Cotacachi is a small town in the northern highlands of Ecuador. Famed for its leatherwork, this friendly town sits in Imbabura province high in the Andes to the north of Quito.
The clock suggests otherwise, but this cityscape is based on a photograph taken early on a Sunday morning, whilst most of the town's inhabitants were still sleeping. The clock is right of course - twice a day! The light bathes the multicolored facades of the houses lining the street, demonstrating the architecture of the province.
This image has been texturized to give it a more painterly feel. Multiple texture layers have been blended with the original photograph and an oil painting effect has been added using Topaz filters.
