Graffiti in Legutiano

November 7th, 2012


Near the end of September I stayed in a forest for a couple of days adjacent to an extensive lake about 20 km north of Vitoria in the province of Euskadi aka Basque Country. On the shores of the lake lies a little village called Legutiano. After I crossed the N240 motorway which divides the village in two, I found out quickly that it's quite a boring place and there's little worth seeing. Fortunately the bakery was still open and I was able to buy some fresh bread.
On the way back I took a different route and I saw a small tunnel for pedestrians passing under the N240. And that tunnel proved unexpectedly worth a visit because it is decorated with impressive graffiti. Back to the camper in the woods to pick up my camera, a couple of lenses and a tripod.
I took about a 100 photo with two different lenses, the Canon 10-22 mm and a 50 mm lens, also from Canon and occasionally using flash. The bright sun was a bit harsh in relation to the light in the tunnel but eventually it resulted in some pretty nice photographs which I would like to share.

Tiermas hot spring

October 28th, 2012


At the Embalse de Yesa, a lake in the province of Aragón in Spain, you will find the hot springs of Tiermas. It is a wonderful experience to lie in the slowly flowing water that has a temperature of around 35 degrees Celsius. There is a strong sulphur smell but you get used to that quickly. Many people rub themselves with the mud. That is supposed to be healthy and in combination with the environment results in rather special pictures.

Cementerio

March 12th, 2011


Cemetery (cementerio) Javea, Spain. The final resting places of old and young, serene, larded with religion, sun-drenched. A great place to relax a few hours yourself, let the silence penetrate and muse about the transience of existence.
