Hello, my name is Bert Becerra, I am a photographer based in Panama and have been wit Alamy since 2006, but never enter the forum until today. Just wanted to say hello and start posting here a bit.

Thank you,

Thanks John, glad you like my country.

 

I spent about a month exploring Panama a number of years ago and was pleasantly surprised at how diverse the country is. It's definitely much more than just a canal.

HiBert

 

Bienvenido. One of my favourite viewpoints anywhere shares your name: Degollada de Becerra in Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, has an absolutely incredible view, especially at sunset.

Like Kumar, I've never been to Panama but maybe some day?

Thanks for the info MDM, did not know about this place. For the word Degollada, it sounds like a fellow with my last name had his throat cut there, wow, LOL

Beautiful place!

Sounds gruesome but I think degollada may have a different meaning to execution or throat slitting in the Canary Islands. There are several places called Degollada de Xxxx and they are usually high mountain viewpoints with amazing views over surrounding valleys. Perhaps that is where they took people to execute them - a beautiful final view before the throat slitting but I doubt that executioners would have been so considerate :)

LOL.. I was thinking it may be refers to slaugther of cattle, since Becerra means calf, not sure though. The truth is that it's a very beautiful place, I was looking into it in google.
