Playa de la Concha

Following my purpose of experimenting with techniques I am less familiar with, this weekend I decided to practice with some panoramas.

The pictures are from Playa de la Concha, in San Sebastian (also called Donostia), located in Northern Spain not far from the border with France. The panorama was assembled from 6 handheld images, put together with the amazing open-source tool Hugin.

Tree in the beach

 

After a couple of days in Bogotá, went north to Santa Marta. From there I went on a guided visit to Tayrona National Park. After passing by the beach of the seven waves, this is the beach where we came out of the truck in order to continue our trip by boat. Probably the most amazing feature of all these beaches, even more than the wonderful blue waters, is how trees keep growing almost all the way to the sea.

Sunset

 

Yet some more Alpine landscapes. I got a bit tired of green grass and blue skies, so skipped a few photos to jump to something with a warmer light on it. After climbing all the way up to Watzmann Haus and joining the rest of the gang there, we enjoyed the amazing views and a hell of a sunset. This photo is almost as it came out of the camera, just did a bit of fiddling with the exposure and color balance.

Let me know what you think!

River valley

Going on with the Alpine hike, after sleeping in Wimbachklamm Hutte the original plan was and climbing Watzmann through the South traverse, but that is a dangerous route with many via ferrata sections, and with my knee injury I decided not to risk it, so while some of my partners went uphill I took a detour skirting around the mountain (following down the dry river) and then climbed all the way up to Watzmann Haus from the North side. Today’s picture was taken very close to the end of the valley, before starting the ascend (from 700 to 1900 meters).

Dry river

 

The dry river valley in front of Wimbrachklamm Hütte. The Watzmann traverse starts not far from here. I know this is lately getting too much about cheesy landscapes, just a few more days until I am done with the Alps and I will move on to more interesting stuff, I promise!
