From Spain, January 2018
About 40 minutes before sunset.
I like shadows.
Self portrait near sundown.
Bull in retirement.
Bulls that are not killed in the bull-ring are often let out to grass for retirement.
Feeding stations for cattle.
Some are said to be from Roman times.
Then I took one in mono.
A rather magnificent stabling area.
A fence made of concrete posts. Big job to put up.
I liked the way they 'marched' across the field.
No otter - take pictures of the rocks.
Another dam; we spent quite some time around here.
Built around 1922 in Franco's time.
Same shot in mono.
The camera at full 400mm zoom; not really long enough. My only complaint with the camera.
The tunnel entrance.
I was struck by the shape of the shadow.
The roadway across the dam leads into a tunnel.
Part of the dam.
These are for raising the sluice gates.
Track down to the dam bottom.
Built to contain building materials when the dam was constructed. No longer in use.
The red and yellow, but here in mono.
All the mono shots were shot in mono in camera, rather than processed later.
This is the red bit in an earlier shot.
High contrast to make the insulators stand out.
I also spot metered off the left hand insulator.
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.
I liked the dead wood in the foreground.
The terrain in which the Lynx lives.
I liked the long shadows of the trees.
I like rocks.
One of the reservoirs.
The water is very low.
Black & white as a change.
Almost a circle.
As the otters were not showing, I concentrated on the rocks.
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.
