Not its real name; we were here twice to see if we could see the otters that are in this part of the river - some did, we didn't.
Autumn colours in January.
From the bridge.
Also from the bridge.
I was testing out the FZ1000 bridge camera; a bit of flare on the right from the low sun getting close to the lens.
My shadow from the bridge.
The dam, from the bridge.
Reflection of part of the dam; this was close to sunset.
As the otters were not showing, I concentrated on the rocks.
Almost a circle.
Shot from the vehicle, through the window.
Early on the Saturday morning.
Mist in the valley.
We all took far too many pictures of the valley mist. It was lovely.
Trying a close up with the new camera.
We had lovely weather and the scenery wasn't too shabby either!
Taken from the vehicle, through the window.
Black & white as a change.
One of the reservoirs.
The water is very low.
Get that shot!
I like rocks.
Spot metering off the lichen.
Paul with the 'Beast'.
Google translator tells me this is a warning of a dangerous road.
Trying landscapes with a mix of 2 and 3 stop ND grad filters.
The terrain in which the Lynx lives.
I liked the long shadows of the trees.
The water level is well down - a dry winter.
Another dam; we spent quite some time around here.
Built around 1922 in Franco's time.
Whole areas of buildings were put up for the workers who built the dams, then they were left to ruin when the work was finished.
I liked the dead wood in the foreground.
Lichen on the rocks.
The reservoir behind the dam seen above.
Still testing the camera; detail shots around the dam.
I did some in black & white, but I liked the red and yellow in this one.
High contrast to make the insulators stand out.
I also spot metered off the left hand insulator.
Built to contain building materials when the dam was constructed. No longer in use.
This is the red bit in an earlier shot.
The red and yellow, but here in mono.
All the mono shots were shot in mono in camera, rather than processed later.
Part of the dam.
These are for raising the sluice gates.
Track down to the dam bottom.
The roadway across the dam leads into a tunnel.
The camera at full 400mm zoom; not really long enough. My only complaint with the camera.
