    Spain is a nice country and, unfortunately I've seen less of it's landscapes than what I'd like. Oh, well, there's always time.
    Excellent photos, by the way.

    Beautiful photographs. I don't know what else I can say. Just lovely.

    Once again I've been completely oblivious to good threads....I haven't looked at any of your other photo threads yet , but will start doing so. I enjoy photography & nature quite a bit myself, which is why it's silly I haven't looked through your threads yet.

    Thankyou. The washout was terrible... low winter sun on a warmish day with heat haze. What you are seeing is the result of a polarising filter and some work with reducing the blue luminance on developing (digitally in lightroom). To the naked eye it was just haze, it was actually quite a revelation to see the detail that was picked up by the camera through the polariser...

    Yes, the sunset would have been great.. but... there was no way I could have taken it. I was an hour's drive in to the mountains, and in the car I had some great barbeque ingredients, some woodchips and coals, and a villa to go back to with cold beer. Would you have stayed until after sunset ?

    Crack photographs, as usual.
    Thank you!

    Are there goats? For some reason I imagine there'd be goats .
    Yes, quite a few goats in Spain... didn't see any at this spot, but I did get some good shots of them at sunrise in the mountains on Mallorca (let me just rummage through the collection...)

    Oh, and aelan... I can imagine how beautiful it would be at sunset or sunrise!
    It is a good spot isnt it.. quite a few tourists, and I can see why...

    Did I mention the busloads of tourists? I am not sure how it'd be midsummer with busloads... it was great in December though!

    Thank you. Spain is a fun country, so much ugly development, and so much beautiful scenery and natural wonder. Contrasts, that's for sure...

    It would almost seem sacrilegious to play Twister in such a locale.

    Almost.

    Amazing pics Geoff. You certainly delve into many inspiring adventures. Thanks for sharing pics.

    Great photos! I will have to look through your other threads, I can't believe they have eluded me until now.

    What a lovely view to have every day. Of course, the first thing I thought of though was "God, what a pain in the ass it must be when you need to run out for a quart of milk!"

    Well.. there are some shops and things, it's a little medieval village on the top of the mountain... just in case you wanted to know what it looked like...

    There's a group of people on the lower right who look like they are just standing and enjoying the beautiful view.
