I have finally got round to processing a roll of film I shot earlier in the summer on a trip to the Picos de Europa in Northern Spain. I always find whether shooting film or digital that if I don't strike while the iron's hot and process the images immediately they get forgotten about while I move on to the next thing. Nevertheless, its been satisfying to review the images a few weeks down the line and reminisce about a great trip. Its a stunning region with amazing walking trails, the highlight being the Cares Gorge.
The Cares Gorge trail is approximately 15km between Poncebos and Cain and is carved into the side of the mountains with the river far below. The path is originally an old hydro-electric maintenance track with vast rock walls on both sides and vertigo inducing sheer drop offs up to 300 metres in places. Each bend in the trail offers surprising vistas more spectacular than the last.
The images here are all from one roll of Fuji Velvia 50 slide film shot on my Hasselblad Xpan.
