Sugar Mountain

Mis Pirineos

(1/250, f7.1, iso-100, 70mm)

Back to a roadtrip I made last June with one of my best friends. This was a view of the tiny  (11 habitants!) village of Salinas de Trillo and the high Pyrenees behind it.
This feels so long ago and so far away being in Malaysia for a month already. We do have an amazing view from our place over the city with the jungle mountains surrounding it, but the ´sugary´ tops are missing…

Have a great holiday and new year, y´all!

    • Hello Suze, thank you very much, it was such an 360-view that i didnt know where to look and what to take but glad some of it came across 😉
      Warm greetings from Kuala Lumpur, Ron.

  1. Thank you for liking “Reflections.” Wow, what a beautiful photo! I like the contrast between the dark green mountains in the foreground and the light hues of the mountains and clouds in the background. The Pyrenees and the clouds look so ethereal.

    • You are very welcome! Thanks for stopping by and enjoying the view with me 😉
      I love those green hills and mountainviews!
      Hope all is well, all the best, Ron.

    • Thanks very much, Seb, sorry for late reply! Great memory comes with this view too 😉
      Hope all is great, like your photos, greetings, Ron.

    • Thanks, my thoughts exactly when coming round the corner, but my trips in the Pyrenees were always filled with lots of ooooh´s and aah´s 😉
      Greeting, Ron.

  2. There is nothing like layers and layers of mountains with different colors. I know you must be missing Spain but it sounds like you got out before the cold weather arrived. I finally made my way up to Zaragoza and discovered the fierce Cierzo winds late in November. Nobody warned me before. Enjoy the warm weather of your new home.

    • Hola Eduardo, totally agree and the Pyrenees have so many of these views to offer, dearly missed althoug the green mountains i see from my home to seem inviting, not snowcapped like in Spain, but still….
      I read about the Cierzo being very fierce now, such a weird phenomenon; if you move 20 kilometers north or south out of the Ebro valley it gets much better!
      Happy travels in 2014 and thanks for your support, Ron.

      Warm greetings from Malaysia,

    • Thank you for your enthousiasm, Sreejith, thats very nice of you to say!
      Luckily I take lots of time to just enjoy the views in this amazing piece of Spain, but sometimes a photo has to be taken 😉
      Warm greetings from Kuala Lumpur, Ron.

    • Thanks so much, Jo, it was weird and nice to spent christmas in the tropics 😉

      all the best, Ron.

    • Thanks so much, Patti, hope you had great holidays too and a good start to 2014!
      Definitely feels like a great memory of my last visit with a friend to the Pyrenees before leaving Spain 😦

      Greetings, Ron.

  4. We’re in Andorra just now, and our view is just like this. Except that it’s raining…hard. Happy Christmas, and looking forward to seeing all your photos of 2014

    • Oh, nice, christmas in the Pyrenees, hope it didnt rain all the time?
      Maybe a little snow higher up?
      Thanks for the support, Margaret and all the best to you, greetings, Ron.

    • haha, didnt even think of that, great find and maybe youre right, but the worlds too big and interesting to stick to a place while youre able to move!
      Thanks, made me smile
      Greetings, Ron

  5. What a breathtaking and intriguing photo, my eyes are drawn both to that small village and to the Pyrenees far away! You too, have a great holiday, I look forward to more photos, from wherever in the world!

    • Hi Gunilla, thanks a lot for your enhtousiasm; these parts of the Pyrenees are still so silent and unspoilt!
      Hope all is well and you have a great 2014! Greetings, Ron.

        • Thanks, erg leuk om te horen, veel Spaans archief nog door te spitten, maar misschien stel ik dat express wel even uit!
          Hier gaat prima hoor, nog niet veel gefotografeerd, wel altijd in mijn achterhoofd wat eventueel mooie objecten, plekken kunnen zijn…
          Nederland goed in de stemming met feestdagen?

  6. Love the different shades as the mountains recede… And that little place is just so remote! Happy holidays to you, and all the best for 2014

    • Thanks very much, Sue, same to you, hope all your wishes come true this year, enjoy the ride!
      Views like this are dearly missed although i cannot complain with new horizons here 😉
      Greetings, Ron.
