Cactus Copiapoa solaris - El Cobre, Antofagasta, Chile

Cactus Copiapoa solaris, El Cobre, Chile © Fantástico Sur ExpeditionsFrom the hyperarid desert the path descends towards the rugged coast and its mist oases. El Cobre is just an abandoned copper processing plant and is seldomly visited. Along the barren road large clumps of this cactus are seen, capable to grow in extremely dry conditions and in highly sun-exposed places. This is the northernmost species of the genus Copiapoa and due to a recent increase on solar radiation levels, many of its populations are now dying. Still the bright green decidely emerges through the barren outcrops of the mineral desert.

Del desierto hiperárido se desciende hacia la abrupta costa y su oasis de niebla. El Cobre no es más que una planta de cobre abandonada y es rara vez visitada. A lo largo del estéril camino comienzan a observarse grandes agregaciones de este cactus, capaz de crecer en condiciones extremadamente secas y de gran exposición del sol. Esta especie es la más septentrional del género Copiapoa y debido a un aumento en los niveles de radiación solar, muchas de sus poblaciones han muerto reciente. Aún así, el verde brillante emerge decidido entre los áridos roquedales del mineral desierto.

Does this sound too good to be real? Crafty people might be born with a skill for making, but people need a couple of practice runs before they could truly create effortlessly. Greatness comes from a great deal of experimenting. It truly is through this process you find out what works and what doesn't along with what supplies you like to use and others you may not. Therefore, the next occasion you are asked, how would you make jewelry? You are able to retort, with no shortage of practice. samples of personal statements | personal statements
