One of the natural beauties that the Cuban municipality of Banes boasts of is its gorgeous landscapes; one can see that special green in the trees, plants and grass that get missed with the color of the soils and the sky. It is that that contrast makes them unique, and so attractive to locals that care for them for the wellbeing of the future generations.
The photos that we use in this work were taken while travelling, from a vehicle in motion, thus we could not have the right framing. They were taken just the way one can them, indeed spontaneously.
In Banes, a territory located to the north of the Cuban province of Holguin, one can find a verdant grove, which is remnant of the past lush vegetation in the place populated by Cuban aboriginals before Spanish colonization.
Today, we have the combination of Mother Nature and man's intrusion, which gives much pleasure and joy to Banes folks. / By Alberto Santiesteban Leyva – Radio Banes. / Translated by Radio Angulo.
