:-D laughing. Ok I thought that was a nice pic anyway. ( Not cf. A difficult one) Let's see if I have someone on the ground then...
You can of course post anything you want. I just left out all my arrows :)

It is a nice picture and I guess I have to go there and find out where it is by walking all the caminos :)

...back. I only got one pic on my camera roll of a shell on the ground: this oneImageUploadedByCamino de Santiago Forum1385840487.648243.jpg.
The photo was taken in the night.

I recognise a few of yours Bea but that's because I remember them from your blog. Don't remember where they were taken though. :)

Thank you for sharing, Bea. I have come to day 19 in your blog, and have seen all your beautiful pictures there. Uses your blog as preparation for my first tour :)

Beatrice, Great photos. I also have photos of every shell marker I saw in the street or sidewalk from Le Puy en Velay to Finisterre and Muxia and from Montpellier to Puente la Reina. You have a few I didn't see. Too many to post them.
On another note, hats off to you for your thoughtful and relevant posts to this forum. Always pertinent and reasonable. Keep it up. Dayton and Karen. London, Canada

Thank you for these. I have been collecting photos of Camino Markings and Waypost on a Pinterest Board and have added these to them.
Hi,
It is really nice that you want to use them on you Pinterest Board but my pictures are copyrighted and should not be distributed without my permission or at least linked back to something that identifies me. If used on Pinterest I want them to link back to my album not this forum as I don't control this space and it does not identifies me as the photographer. The album is found at: https://plus.google.com/photos/+BéatriceKarjalainen/albums/5943648210816836433?authkey=COmOouLzq_PRfQ there you also will find way markers other than those posted above. I have invested a lot of money and time in my pictures and will at least have the credit for taking them.

I don't get that @BeatriceKarjalainen , because it seems to be the same marker, but it is different. Mine has no cross but there's a concha instead. And on the other hand the yellow arrow is the same. Was it ruined in past 3 years???

My pictures is from August 2013. Maybe they found the top part and put it back on?

It's definitely the same marker. Note the dot in the stone in the middle of letter S in "de Santiago". And another one above the "r" in "a supaso por"! Those are the same on both photos, no doubt. I think that the upper part must've been replaced in those 3 years. Interesting.

Here's my photo of this marker taken in September 2012. No topper at all!
