A Cuba nella zona di Viñales ho conosciuto questi "uomini del carbone" che ricavano dalla combustione di cataste di legna controllandola per 7-8 giorni, giorno e notte, coprendole di terra e rimuovendola per far recuperare ossigeno, un processo di lavorazione lungo e impegnativo dove al termine si ottengono due tipi di qualità di carbone o meglio carbonella che vengono spediti in tutto il paese e parte dell'Europa. Ho avuto modo di incontrarli nella zona forestale la sera prima, dove incuriosito mi sono avventurato per capire cosa fossero queste montagnette nere fumanti; sono stato accolto dal gestore di quest'area che subito, sorridente, mi ha offerto un goccio di Rum, dopo qualche sorso e qualche chiacchiera mi ha dato la possibilità di fotografare gli operai, ormai eravamo ben oltre il tramonto e dopo qualche scatto chiedo di poter tornare il mattino seguente. Mi presento di buon'ora al mattino, i lavoratori erano già impegnati con badili e rastrelli, la luce era ancora troppo lieve, faccio qualche scatto ma nulla di entusiasmante, poco dopo si spostano tutti verso un cumulo fumante a ridosso di un grosso albero, il carbone era pronto per essere estratto e proprio in quel momento spunta il sole creando queste splendide lame di luce... non potevo credere alla bellezza del momento, regnava un silenzio surreale eravamo tutti concentrati a fare quello che dovevamo... Uno dei momenti fotografici più belli che mi siano capitati di vivere...

Beautiful this photo, amazing there is nothing to say... I really like the glow you gave to the lights in the trees, the contrast with the terrain and the people, a beautiful result. You have created a very peculiar atmosphere and very varied in colors. Good job!! Bravo :-o

Welcome back Cuban! A great photo, what a crazy light!
I also saw the BN version, but personally I prefer this in color.

Beautiful image, congratulations.
Seems Another world, but that technique was also used in our Apennines, until the years ' 60 of the last century

Sar10, Alessandro, Juza, Annh, Gabbia65, Gian Carlo F, thank you!!
@Gian Charles F I did not know, for known reasons the weather in Cuba (in several cases) has stopped in the years 60...

I Frequent the woods of the Ligurian-Piedmontese Apennines, it is not uncommon to find some beautiful floors where the land is very black. My father-in-law had explained to me that those were the coalpers.
Produced coal from wood, to resell it in the cities where it was used for heating.
Was replaced by diesel (and then methane)
