On this day in 2012, between Villafranca Montes de Oca and San Juan de Ortega - a misty foggy morning through the forest passing the Monument to the Fallen, those executed during the Civil War. A morning strong in my memory. I didn't know about the monument until I came to it, but well before the place, the atmosphere was hushed and reflective with most people - even those in groups - moving into walking solo, quietly.

Oh my goodness, how I remember that section. Try what it is like in Culloden, Scotland, sometime. And yes, a superb photo.

All credit to your artistic eye for a great photo of pilgrims in the mist and mountains in the background. Lovely shot!

So far...

I’ve used it for my phone screen. I hope that's OK.
All credit to your artistic eye.

Hi @Lexicos, I want to thank you for your kind compliments about my photo - they are appreciated! For the future though, I do feel the need to point out Forum Rule 12 re: the use and uploading of other's photos. I have had people request the use of my photos before and so far have been fine with it. It's really about the courtesy of asking and stating the purpose of the use first.

12) For photos uploaded to the forum (including the Photo section) the following rules apply:
  • Photos uploaded to the forum is the property of the person who took the photo.
  • Please only upload photos that are your own.
  • To use these photos in any other way, please contact the person who took the photo for permission.

Camino Frances- 19th, September, 2014 Villares de Orbigo to Murias de Rechivaldo. Iglesia San Esteban, Murias de Rechivaldo. We got a stamp here and enjoyed visiting this local parish church with very large stork's nest on top of bell tower!

Except the Francés
A view back towards Ponferrada and the northern Bierzo on the first day of the Invierno.
Looking in much the same direction from a little higher up on the same stage out of Ponferrada on the Invierno. This view is from "el banco más bonito del Bierzo" near Cornatel Castle.

Francés again - ASAP
This may well be my last contribution to this thread, as I've now reached the end of my pictures from both of my Caminos.

By chance, the celebratory dinner for my Portugués was held at the same place I'd whooped it up at the end of my Francés.

It was quite a night, on both occasions.

One day, I'll walk to Santiago again, and I know which restaurant I'll visit when I get there.

Hi Theatregirl. My apologies. I wasn't aware of the rule. It's a good rule and it makes sense of course. I shall remove. Thanks for pointing it out.
I also posted someone else's photo in ignorance too, as I'd not read the forum rules for a long time. I appreciated being reminded by a mod.

Inspired by Sabine's and Rick's posts yesterday,
I see your six and raise you...uhhh, I lose count. 🙃

The forest of signs on the Invierno near Sion; the panoramic view of both sides of the road doesn't really capture the impact.
It was impressive. Fortunately the yellow arrow cuts through all the clutter very nicely.
Just. Go. Straight.

That was where the group of us who banded together, very loosely, on the Portugués, met up for dinner. It was very enjoyable, plenty of space for everyone and not at all expensive. The following evening we hosted anyone still around in the kitchen of the Last Stamp, another treasure we discovered that time. It was Casa Pasta, a winner every time!!! I have very few photos but it is a joy to keep seeing those posted, so don’t sign out of the thread!

If you start all over again we can enjoy them a second time. Seriously...just a thought.

Camino Frances- 22nd, September, 2014 Molinaseca to Cacabelos. Our first really rainy day on this Camino. Walking through Ponferrada. We couldn't stay in Ponferrada this time as our walk coincided with the World Team Cycling Competition being held in and around Ponferrada. In fact we stayed in the same hotel in Cacabelos with the Azerbaijani cycling team! We had to negotiate many detours around Ponferrada to safely get to Cacabelos.

Back to Pancorbo on the Via de Bayona again. This is from a little above the village, heading to the rock formation at the left, where there is the remains of a fortress. The whole place is incredibly photogenic.

So far...
2012 ~ 2019
That long stretch without services between Carrión de los Condes and Calzadilla de la Cueza on an extremely windy, chilly, sometimes drizzly day - 4 of us find a picnic table for a lunch stop - others arrive, 5...6 & 7... soon there are 8, cozy around the table with everyone sharing whatever food they have in their packs.

Camino Frances- 26th, September, 2014 Triacastela to Sarria. We were very fortunate to be entertained by this local Sarria Youth Band beside the Rio Sarria, while having dinner. We only took videos, so have taken a screen shot of them. They were excellent. The young man with his back to us standing was playing the Galician Pipes. It was a wonderful experience.

Saturday 26 September 2015 : my second last day on the Camino. I stayed in Arzua, it was very quiet for a town so close to Santiago. I left early the next morning (a Sunday) just as the church bells started ringing, as I was on the bike I followed the N547. I arrived at Santiago at around 1.00 pm (13.00)

I enjoy seeing this photo @VNwalking because this was the day I took the wrong turn out of Las Medulas and entered Puente de Domingo Florez in a different part of town from another direction!
Well...here is another bit, then, from quite a way farther up, though after where you turned off to Yeres, looking in that direction. In fact, the road in the photo may actually be the one you took:

Past? Not enough.
Future? Sure!
28th, September, 2017 Voie de Vézelay.
When you arrive in the département des Landes, from Bazas to Mont-de-Marsan, you have to follow an old train line from WWII: around 50 km of almost straight line in the forest.
The picture is taken when going out of Captieux, in some places they simply cut the tracks instead of removing them.

Not far from Valdorria, just off the Olvidado between Boñar and Vegacervera, near where San Froilán (with help from his pet wolf, whom he'd tamed after the latter chomped his mule) built his León mountain hermitage.

I didn’t make it up to the hermitage (Alan, just another detour for me to follow in your footsteps some day), but I clearly remember cresting the hill, huffing and puffing, with pretty valleys behind us, and seeing the mountains right there in front of us — one of those amazing too-good-to-be-true moments. Pictures just can’t capture the magnificence.

@Pruden is there now, and he has an Olvidado thread going with some of these same views.

I've eaten those before with you! Sure, I'd love some! Let me go grab a beer with lemon, and let's just sit and chat for a while. I am so glad to be back on Camino. I have six weeks this time!

Wow, welcome to our table, @Wokabaut_Meri! Long time no see. ☺
Then there's all those zero calories pastries in Burgos... can smell the café con leche from here ☕
OMG yes.
Melide, what I indulged in while everyone else was down the street eating pulpo.
