Hola Javier,

Fantastic photo Javier! I love it!

This photo is 1024px wide, the ideal width should be about 300 or 400. So it is still a bit too big.
(Este foto tiene 1024px de ancho, lo ideal para el foro seria 300 o 400. Entonces todavia es un poco largo.)

Un saludo,
Hi Javier,
You apologise for the size of your photos, but thank you for posting them. There are people like myself who have not yet mastered how to scan and post a photo! So your efforts are very much appreciated, it's good to have visual reminders of the Pilgrimage.

Hmm... I guess my numbers where not correct earlier (300 or 400 may be a bit small)... the image below is 600px wide and it looks ok, right?

What do you think? (Click on the photo so see the whole picture with no scroll bars)

..great photo.. :)

Ah those ubiquitous phone/electric lines again! They're everywhere along the camino, sure to render imperfect an otherwise perfect photo. Congratulations, Javier, for that great shot. Not perfect, but great nonetheless.

We started walking before the dawn and watching the changing sky is almost a mystical experience.
The first light just breaks the dark. The suns rays then light up the sky as though a host of angels will soon appear! Then the horizon turns an almost unnatural pink and blue. Magical moments!
