Terri from Second Wind Leisure hosts #SundayStills, with a different prompt for each week. The prompt for the photo challenge this week is Fog and Clouds. I’m not a photographer in any way, but I thought I’d just give this challenge a go.
My photos for this week’s Fog and Couds prompt are from my pilgrimmage walk of the Camino de Santiago in June/July 2014. This walk starts in the south of France, crosses the Pyrenees, and over the border to Spain. The walk then goes across Spain to the finish at Santiago de Compostela. The Camino was my celebration of turning 60.
I decided to walk an extra few days to Finisterre on the Spanish coast . Historically, it was thought the world was flat, with Finisterre being the edge of the earth. The total distance I walked was 1218 kilometres.
The central tablelands between Burgos and Astoria are known as The Meseta, Spanish for plateau. At 220ks, I found it long and hot, but definitely not boring, as some people had warned me. Many pilgrims take the bus over the Meseta to relieve the boredom of walking for days, on completely flat ground. I’m pleased I walked it, if only to see the incredible skies. The Meseta was one of the highlights for me.
When I think of clouds, tis photo comes to mind. It was taken at about 5am, as I was leaving O’Cebreiro, which is a tiny village high in the mountains. It was snow covered and looked beautifully magical, when I was there. What looks like water splashing in the photo, is actually clouds and fog. It was an incredible feeling to be so high above the clouds.
