Back from Easter Island

We are back!

Thanks to Miguel Blanco for getting together a group of real travelers, with whom we had the pleasure of sharing our adventures in the most isolated and amazing place on Earth. As we saw, it’s better to travel in good company.

Some of the routes we walk across the island

We’ll be uploading some pictures of this last expedition to Rapa Nui. For starters, here we have a satellite image of the island with some of the routes we have walked under the sun… or the storm.

Temple of Isis (Philae)

The Sancta Sanctorum of the temple

Built in the age of pharaoh Nectanebo, founder of the XXX Dynasty, last of the authentic egyptian dynasties, the actual temple of Isis is not in it’s original place. When the massive Aswan Dam was built, the temple would have been submerged, so it was moved to it’s actual location with UNESCO’s sponsorship.

The geography of Agilkia Island was completely modified, to make it look exactly like Philae, where the temple complex was originally standing.

This is the personal web site of Yvan Figueiras-Ruiz, writer –winner of the I and the VII International Prize of Historical Divulgation Juan Antonio Cebrián, commercial diver, photographer and graphic designer, as well as being a collaborator of the Radio Nacional de España program Espacio en Blanco and a member of the remembered radio show Dimensión Límite. The site is created as a personal portfolio, with sections devoted to my published books and articles and to one of my true passions: homemade robotics. In this last section we’ll be also including our radio interventions in Espacio en Blanco and other shows about this fascinating subject.

We include a modest blog, where we’ll be commenting a “Featured Image”, so that nobody can doubt that the incredibles images that we can see in magazines o professional web sites aren’t that difficult. They really are at the grasp of everybody with a little amateur equipment.

We are working in a series of photography tutorials to show our visitors some of the least know techniques: freezing the explosion of a balloon, turning water into smoke… even catching the Milky Way o projecting an image INSIDE a water drop.

If you need help in the creation o maintenance of your web page, you can write to us in the contact section.

Thanks for visiting our site. We hope that the continuous renovations aren’t too annoying.

From Submarines to Creatures from the Abyss – Science & Fiction

Presented by the omnipresent David Cuevas, Dimension Limite’s team had the oportunity to get together during the II  Solidarity Symposium of the Mistery that took place in Pozuelo de Alarcon, where Mikel Navarro and Yvan Figueiras could record our last “Ciencia y Ficcion” (Science and Fiction).

Apart from David and the public, we’d also like to thank Manuel Carballal for his work in the “fish bowl”.
