It is a paradisiacal place in the coast of the Mexican Pacific, located to the north of the port of Mazatlán, it is said that its name is due to the bar that forms at the mouth of the river Piaxtla that is its northern limit. This site is undoubtedly one of the most precious natural jewels of the state of Sinaloa to be blessed with countless attractions. In its fourteen kilometers of coastline there are bays, estuaries and navigable lagoons, which paint beautiful landscapes, where you can achieve photographs worthy of being displayed as postcards In its fourteen kilometers of coastline there are bays, estuaries and navigable lagoons, which paint beautiful landscapes, where you can achieve photographs worthy of being displayed as postcards, it has a spectacular cliff known as "Punta Prieta", due to the black color in its rock structure, formed millions of years ago by petrified volcanic material. On this cliff the sea and the wind have molded capricious formations in the rock, like the enormous arc that projects towards the interior of the sea, known like "the window", curiously this bow is placed opposite the one of Cabo San Lucas in the Peninsula of Baja California, both symbolize the entrance to the "Sea of Cortes" Piaxtla Barras counts on numerous beaches, located in bays that are framed by the spectacular mountains that excel in its coast, each one has a singular beauty, but they coincide among them to have soft sand, warm waters and of little slope that make them very safe and ideal to develop recreational activities during all year. Its best-known beach lends its name to the destination, behind it lies a small town full of palm trees, which is home to families of fishermen, who obtain succulent products of the sea, although increasingly, they become service providers for the growing number of visitors, on this beach there are also some houses that have built neighbors of nearby cities that have fallen in love with this privileged place, on the hill located at its northern end, about forty years ago a majestic lighthouse was built, which to this day serves as an aid to navigators during the night and is one of the icons of this community. Other beaches are; "El Puyeque" located between "Boca de Mendía" and the mouth of the Piaxtla River, behind this beach is an estuary with windy channels, where it is possible to row in Kayaks among lush mangroves. "Quetzalan", also known as "inchahuevo", is a bay that forms between the cliffs of "Punta Prieta" and "Cerro del Carey" which imposes for its beauty, virginity and the intense blue of the sea. Further south are the small but not less beautiful, "Charay" beach and finally "Las Tinajas" which is the longest of all, near its shore burst immense waves that make this place a spectacular place. I would not like to mention that "Barras de Piaxtla" is part of the buffer zone of the nature reserve for the protection of flora and fauna known as "Meseta de Cacaxtla" I would not like to mention that "Barras de Piaxtla" is part of the buffer zone of the nature reserve for the protection of flora and fauna known as "Meseta de Cacaxtla", this guarantees a harmonious development with nature and environment. In its fifty-six thousand hectares, the reserve houses endemic plants and birds, mammals such as deer, wild boar, raccoons, badgers and coatis besides big cats such as ocelot and jaguar, is a natural habitat that is our responsibility to conserve, finding alternatives for sustainable development. Being part of the reservation could make us think of a certain degree of isolation, the reality is different since it has excellent communication routes that give it permanent access using the airport of Mazatlan, The Culiacán - Mazatlan Highway and a regional asphalted highway that is almost finished. It is part of the Dimas Station in the Municipality of San Ignacio, in its head that is a few kilometers, there you can get rich regional food products and various additional services. To conclude, I would like to invite you to visit it, which is undoubtedly one of the sites with the greatest potential for tourism development in the state of Sinaloa, combining the existence of beautiful beaches and landscapes, with a very preserved natural environment, good weather, abundant water, excellent communication channels, exquisite regional gastronomy and good work people avid of progress, who aspires to build a better future for his community, Barras de Piaxtla is a place that you must know.

Little Planet Super Moon Photo Gallery How this virtual tour was made On December 13th, we had the fortune of making a photograph of the Super Moon in Barras de Piaxtla, Sinaloa, just as the moon was approaching the iconic lighthouse of this beautiful place. All of the tutorials I was studying helped me to learn, for a desired shooting position and composition, how to use the PhotoPills Scheduler Search tool to calculate the exact date and time the moon would be right where I wanted it. The search tool is a great help in planning the alignments of the moon, but what happens when you want to plan a photo with the next full moon, in this case, you know the date of the shot and you have to find out the shooting point and time. Imagine that you want to photograph the next full moon when you are right behind the lighthouse you see in the photo above. It's a long distance shot, so you'll have to plan the trigger point conveniently to be able to capture a moon-sized superior than the lighthouse. I highly recommend this iPhone app for making spectacular photos of the sun and moon.

Join us ! Little Planet Photo Gallery How this virtual tour was made One of my favorite places to go on a trip with my family is the Altata bay, where we have been able to enjoy beautiful landscapes and sunsets that have a special charm for the colors of the sky especially in the golden hour and in the blue hour. It is in this place where we have also had the opportunity to coincide with our friends and family for many years and I hope to continue enjoying it. The virtual tours elaborated with spherical photography with drone have to be complemented with a spherical photograph realized in ground. With the drone the image of the Nadir is made, 8 images at -45 degrees, 8 more at 0 degrees and 8 at 45 degrees and on land is elaborated with a Nodal Ninja rod of 3 meters, the photograph of Cenit. In short, there are 26 photographs in 3-step bracketing giving a total of 78 images, which are revealed in Lightroom and in PTGui is the fusion of exhibitions. The result is very beautiful.
The port of Altata, head of Sindicatura of the town of Navolato, considered at the moment as a port of passage and place for family time, has had high and lows throughout its history, one which dates back to 1834 when it acquired importance by being qualified as the landing of charter vessels of merchandise, declaring itself to be an sea port in 1847, being from then until the beginning of the 20th century, the second most importance in the State of Sinaloa, for Its traffic, surpassed only by Mazatlán. Altata was ratified as a sea port on November 30th, 1881, supported by its magnificent geographical location. Altata was ratified as a sea port on November 30th, 1881, supported by its magnificent geographical location that became a point of link for the introduction and distribution of goods brought from other countries to Mexico, as well as for the exit of agricultural, industrial, and mining production, not only from Sinaloa but also from the neighboring states like, Chihuahua and Durango to other parts of the Mexican Republic and abroad, through its connections to San Francisco, California, through the Curacao steam of the Pacific Coast Steamship Co. ". That form of communication and transportation was extended with the routes that covered the Guaymas, Manzanillo and Porfirio Díaz Vapors of the company that owns and administers the Occidental Railroad of Mexico, touching the ports of La Paz, Mazatlán, San Blas, State of Nayarit; Manzanillo, State of Colima and Altata. In 1883, Altata received a new impulse to economical development. Increasing with this its contribution to the rest of the entity and the country. In 1883, Altata received a new impulse to economical development. Increasing with this its contribution to the rest of the entity and the country. At the beginning of its operations, the Western Railroad of Mexico, whose route only reached Culiacan, despite the original concession, indicating Durango, the state capital of the same name as the target, with the Altata station being one of the most important, “El Tacuarinero" was for more than three decades the only means of transport, of passage and load, with reliablity at that time in which those that today are productive agricultural fields, were only surfaces covered by thick mountain. In the history of Altata there are very important passages, such as the fact that in the second decade of the present century it was the scene of the armed struggles during the Mexican Revolution. In 1864, French troops landed into Culiacan in an intent to capturing the city, being repelled by General Antonio Rosales, in San Pedro town, today part of the Navolato city. In 1864, French troops landed into Culiacan in an intent to capturing the city, being repelled by General Antonio Rosales, in San Pedro town, today part of the Navolato city. One of the events recorded in Altata and that were in the history of our country, is that there, the General Plutarco Elías Calles deposited his vote in favor of the candidacy of General Lázaro Cárdenas, who on assuming the first magistracy expelled him from Mexico in 1936. The country's progress in terms of roads, such as the construction of the South-Pacific Railroad of Mexico in 1907, and the construction of the international highways and Culiacán-Navolato-Altata, led to a change in the Transportation programs, both passenger and cargo, and because the operation cost could not be paid, the route that from 1883 to 1934 was known as the Western Railroad of Mexico was cancelled due to insufficent funds, with its train known as "El Tacuarinero". This last event was decisive for Altata to "come to less"; i.e., an important source of work was terminated, as was the movement of loading of train to the vapors and vice versa. Also, the visits of "tourists" who periodically arrived to the port for their disbursements, although scarce, to support some restaurants and groceries that at that time functioned, decreased; activity that recovered noticeably when the road opened in the early "forties".

I did this virtual tour in the first minutes of the golden hour, getting some oranges and yellow saturated because that type of light still does not have great contrasts. Perhaps the most important thing to get a good image is to "retract" the histogram, to get the most shades in both illuminations and shadows.
With nearly 8 million inhabitants, Quebec is the second most populous province in Canada, coming in second to Ontario. Despite having a dynamic economy, Quebec is one of the provinces with the lowest per capita GDP of Canada, with about $ 38,000. What Quebecers can boast about is their history, as it was in their capital, in the city of Quebec, where colonization began. Key dates in the history of Quebec 1608, Foundation of Quebec: In his second expedition to the New World, Samuel de Champlain founded Quebec on the St. Lawrence River adjacent promontory. Thanks to the navigability of the river, his goal was to use the city as a base for the colonization of the 'New France'. 1608, Foundation of Quebec: In his second expedition to the New World, Samuel de Champlain founded Quebec on the St. Lawrence River adjacent promontory. Thanks to the navigability of the river, his goal was to use the city as a base for the colonization of the 'New France'. 1756, The Seven Years' War: The two major European powers of the time, France and England, waged a war for hegemony. The conflict extended to the American colonies. 1763, End of French sovereignty: The defeat of the Plains of Abraham in September 1759, at the gates of the city of Quebec, marks the end of French sovereignty of the territory, which is reflected four years later in the Pairs Treaty. 1774, Respect for the language and laws: The British Parliament enacts the Quebec Act, which recognizes the position of the French language, the Catholic religion and the French civil code in the colony. Fearful that Francofones will join the American rebels, the British decide to end its policy of assimilation to win the loyalty of the population. 1963, The Front of Liberation of Québec: a terrorist group that aims to achieve Quebec ́s independence appears. Most of their actions directed against English institutions, are not intended to have victims. However, in 1970 two politicians are abducted, and one of them is eventually killed. These actions lead to the collapse of public support, and the group dissolved. 1980, First independence referendum: PQ's nationalist government, led by Rene Levesque lost the referendum which clearly called for a 60% versus 40%. 1981, 'The night of the long knives': After weeks of discussion to reform the Constitution, the Canadian Prime Minister meets with the leaders of all provinces except Quebec and reforms a text pact. The next morning he presented the text to Levesque as a fait accompli. The Quebec premier refuses to sign it, and believes that he has been betrayed. Till today, Quebec has not signed the Constitution. Federalism is enrolled in the political culture since its birth as a state. It was the United Kingdom who, due to linguistic and religious plurality of the colony, decided to create the 'Confederation of Canada' in 1867. 1995, Second independence referendum: The 'No' to the succession is imposed, but this time for only 50,000 votes, and a percentage of 50.5% versus 49.5%. The Canadian federal system Federalism is enrolled in the political culture since its birth as a state. It was the United Kingdom who, due to linguistic and religious plurality of the colony, decided to create the 'Confederation of Canada' in 1867. Since then, the division of powers between the various constitutions has varied, but the federalist spirit has remained. The last constitutional reform of 1982, establishes two levels of power, the central and provincial. Each of them has three classic powers: legislative, executive, and judicial. According to the Constitution, both the provinces and the central government have exclusive jurisdiction. For example, in Ottawa figures: criminal law, national security, and signing international treaties. As for the powers of the provinces, they include education, health, culture and civil code. The Constitution also cites three busy competencies, i.e., in which both power levels involved: immigration, agriculture, and finance. Although the division of powers seems clear, provinces and central government have engaged in multiple legal battles to expand its powers that have often ended in the Constitutional Court.

Little Planet Photo Gallery How this Virtual Tour was made In many public places, for security reasons, it is prohibited from using tripods. Some of these places are: airports, stadiums, museums, shopping malls. That is why this time, in order not to miss the opportunity to take pictures of virtual reality, I used the "technique variation phyllopod tone", where you're not really using a tripod and can be as fast possible To rotate the camera around the point of no parallax. The trick is to install to the front of the lens a tied piece of rope and at the end a coin or fishing rig to weigh down, which will help you keep a reference and keep the camera in the same place as you turn around to take the different pictures. Four photos, one in each direction being taken and varying the pitch slightly up and down between shots. Hang the currency or rig above the same spot on the floor. Do not look at the camera, rather, look at the currency to keep it above the same spot on the ground. Take the first picture, then rotate 90 degrees and take the second picture, turning 90 degrees and take a third and fourth photograph. With this achieve a fully spherical panorama taken without a tripod.
Topolobampo. the place where the rainbow ends. Place where the magic of the elements are combined in a universal symphony: wild land of hills with cactus and pitahayas; Blue sky in the day and stars in the night vault. Below, the village attending the imposing presence of the Bay of Ohuira formed by the waters of the Sea of Cortez, where the most varied and rich species boast that today have been worth the recognition of the world's marine sanctuary There began the utopia of the southeast at the end of the century. The last modern epic and the last attempt of pacific colonization of North America. There Albert Kimsey Owen landed with his group of dreamers in pursuit of the dream that would end in terrible failure and whose descendants of foreign surnames nowadays inhabit the neighboring and progressive city of Los Mochis, founded with the birth of the sugar mill, by another American, Benjamin Francis Johnston, who was crowned by the success his presence in these lands. From this place, the railway engineer Albert Kimsey Owen set out on the back of a mule to trace the route that follows the Chihuahua-Pacific railroad on the natural wonder of the Sierra Madre Occidental passing through the Copper Canyon visited year after year by tourists of all the world. The dream of Owen's utopian socialists coming from the United States of America is now realized. From its docks ferries depart that connect the north of Sinaloa with La Paz, B.C. And huge cargo ships that sail the seas of the world with different destinations. Minerals and thousands and thousands of tons of golden grains travel to distant Africa and Asia. Little known is that in this port in the days of revolutionary Mexico was carried out the first naval combat of the world carried out between the gunboat "Guerrero" and the Biplane "Sonora" manned by Captain Gustavo Salinas assisted by the mechanic Teodoro Madariaga. The world also knows of the richness of the marine fauna of the waters that bathe to Topolobampo. Year after year there are hundreds of boats out there to participate in sports tournaments, being known the hill of El Farallón whose basses are famous for the size and variety of the pieces captured. The prophecy and vision of Albert Kimsey Owen, after sleeping his first night under the stars of Topolobampo in 1872 would remain for posterity when he wrote marveling at the spell of this earth: "I left my blankets and walked among the mountain until arriving at the edge of the beach. What a panorama! A whole enclosed sea! I said to myself: If in the morning I find a deep and secure entrance channel from the Gulf of California, here on this bay, it will be the site of a great metropolitan city. On this sea, where a sail is not found today, the ships of all nations will sail and on these plains many families will live happy. The Australian will come here to meet the European, who will come across the continent by rail from the Atlantic.

The golden hour and the blue hour reflect in these images beautiful colors of different shades, first highlight the yellows and oranges and then the blue and magenta.

It was a fantastic afternoon in mid-January with a bit of cold covering me with a light jacket I could comfortably enjoy.

Little Planet http://elcidgolfclub.com.mx/mazatlan/ How was this Virtual Tour made The spherical photo of Marina El Cid was taken at noon with a harsh sunlight. F/11 or even smaller diaphragm apertures give a quite interesting effect in luminous objects as the sun or light bulbs forming starts that beautify the pictures. The shoot on board was complicated because of the shaking, so the stitching in PTGui was made manually by placing some points, due to automatically it was impossible, and then in Photoshop adding layers to make some corrections.
The Malecón of Mazatlán Sinaloa is considered one of the longest in the world, on it can be seen some of the beautiful attractions of Mazatlán just like its beaches, sunsets and the sea. The Malecón Mazatlán from south to north or north to south has a length of twenty- one kilometers, along which can be found monuments , ancient buildings , hotels, restaurants , bars , discos, shops , cinemas, banks , clinics, people, among many other things. For Mazatlecos “natives of Mazatlán” their Malecón is the best place for release stress; they cross it daily and always find a reason to be surprised. In each section of the nine that compose it ( Puntilla- Ferry Pier , Lighthouse, Centennial , Olas Altas , Claussen , Avenida del Mar , Camarónes “Shrimp” Sábalo “chad”, Cerritos, Cerritos-Nuevo Mazatlan ) the different stages of the history of this beautiful tourist destination is reflected. Very early in the morning as well in the evenings there are hundreds of locals and visitors who exercise in any of the sections of the Malecón. In summer the warm season of Mazatlan, entire families take to the Malecon to enjoy the refreshing breeze of summer evenings, visitors join the nice custom.

Little Planet How this Virtual Tour was made Night shots usually require high sharpness in its entirety and the only way to accomplish this is minimizing the opening of the diaphragm, by doing this we increase the depth of the field, normally I like the image depth around f / 8 and f / 11. Of course, this reduction in the flow of light is to be offset by a higher exposure time and/or increased sensitivity in order to obtain a properly expose picture. The time I settled in these photo spheres was half a second to 25 seconds. It was a real pleasure to do the virtual tour and walk at night through the beautiful Malecón of Mazatlán, very clean and bright, the scenery is amazing and many families take the opportunity to go for a walk and enjoy all its attractions. I hope to return soon to continue taking photographs of Mazatlán.

Join us ! Little Planet How this virtual tour was made This project was made by Luis Amarante, Miguel Angel Victoria and the Colombian teacher Mario Carvajal, who inspired us to take pictures of the Milky Way from Cortés Island. Our intention was to go one night before, because by then we had new moon and there was total darkness, but the rain did not allow us to do it. That day we arrived around four in the afternoon and used the time to take some sphere photos of the Navy, Yacht Club and the Beach Club “Puesta del Sol”. It is a paradise, with excellent installations to go out, eat and enjoy of its beautiful sunsets. The photos of the Milky Way were of long exposition since 8:00-8:30. An unforgettable evening that we are looking forward to repeat soon.
We went to the Beach Club of Isla Cortés at Altata, Sinaloa, Mexico. We chose the Friday, November 13, 2015, as the date to go see the milky way at the beach. We invite you to enjoy so sublime moment. How to take a photo of the milky way It is much easier than you think. But it is necessary to have the right equipment. The first thing is to have a tripod. The camera must be motionless, absolutely still while taking the photo. Without a tripod, it would be impossible to take it. Then, it is important to have an ultra lens wide angle. For example, a lens of less than 20 mm. And if you are a fisheye, fantastic also. But if you have a 35 mm lens, you probably won't get an interesting coverage for your photography. The camera also has an effect. It is preferable to having full format, full frame cameras, although it is not essential. These cameras will probably a sensor with better performance, and you can use a high ISO. Finally, a remote shutter release will be a very good idea, but if you don't, you can put your camera timer. If you have the proper equipment, the camera settings will be very simple: everything in manual, open as open as possible, e.g. f2.8 would be ideal. A high ISO, e.g. 3200 is fine. Trip time, depends on the focal length: between higher angularity, longer can shoot. You can be in the famous "the 500 rule"... You split 500 between the focal length and that will be the maximum number of seconds that can shoot your photo. In such a way that the stars don't let trail or trail... I.e., if you are going to shoot with a 17 mm lens, the maximum time would be 29 seconds. And ready! Have fun taking photos of the Milky...
