We hosted our Medellin photography meet-up at the Medellin Botanic Garden — this is an oasis within the city where you can find tropical plant-life and even some animals roaming freely.

This Unsplash meet-up attracted travelers and expats from Australia, France, Germany, Canada and Israel. During the hours we spent at the Jardin Botanico — which, by the way, is free! We walked through the jungle section and the desert plant life section, both of which have spectacular species native to different biomes. One surprise along the way was the large iguana that peeked out from some grass and proceeded to awe us with its climbing skills.

The cloudy weather was ideal for shooting and avoiding harsh shadows on the plant life. We did get some peeks of sun, toward the end, when we all boarded the Medellin metro as a group to head back toward El Poblado.

We’d like to thank everyone for coming out for the Medellin Unsplash meet-up!
