The northern Uruguayan coastlines features in it´s geography a series of peninsulas and capes reaching out some kilometers into de ocean. In Cabo Polonio Natural Park, a small fishihing village, the absence of streets and the building-free entourage, just some wooden and brick houses named ¨ranchos¨, are well apart from each other, causing one to inevitably look out into the distance integrating the sky to the lansdcape giving the impression of being surrounded by a big space. There are also special conditions about the geography in these lands that generate dramatic and overwhelming skyscapes.
