A couple of years ago just before sunset we descended down the Ordesa valley in the spectacular landscape of
the Ordesa National Park in the Spanish Pyrenees.
Would you believe it´s possible to walk along one of the highest ridges on this wall where at places the path is one metre wide and you´ll have a 400m sheer drop to your right?
Here´s a video with evidence!
Hi Ron, thanks for visiting my blog. Love this photo – the light is super.
Wonderful mountain photography.
Impressive sight of these beautiful mountains. It looks dangerously out to hike up there. But amazingly beautiful!
Thanks for the compliment and I wasn´t able to do it cuz of bad winter weather, but I´m not sure if I was brave enough to try it 😉
What a shot! The things I missed on your blog during my holidays. I’ll have to visit it for myself some day. Thank you for sharing Ron! Again, fabulous light and composition 🙂
Hope all is well over there, thanks for taking a look and guess I missed some things around here while i was away but happy to be looking around again 😉
Definitely a great place to visit as is the most of the Pyrenees, very quiet and beautiful!
Best to you
Hi Ron 🙂 I am happy I got to hear from you before my next trip that is starting next Wednesday. I hope you will be posting something before I go. Have missed you and your posts. P. 🙂
Hola, just opened your blog to see what I missed, love the colors on that stream already 😉
Where is the trip going to this time?
Just put up the first animal on my blog ever and surely more photos from my trip coming up…
Tuscany 🙂 Does it sound good? 😉 (11 days of absence from … well, brutal reality)
Tuscany must be beautiful this time of year, still good weather hopefully and start of colorful autumn!
Definitely sounds good, miss the seasons over here 😉
Thanks very much, Alois, glad to show the beauty of the Spanish mountains!
Guess it doesn´t matter too much with such distances and low light made it more necessary, if I can recall!
Thanks for stopping by, Scott, hope all is well?!
You could not have planned a more perfect shot! It is just beautiful, the lighting is amazing! And your post production adds so much to the image!
Muchas gracias, Emilio, actually we ahd to hurry down to catch the last bus back to civilisation, but couldnt miss the amazing last light on these rocks 😉
Didnt do too much on pp, apart from some sharpening on rocks, cuz the light was perfect as it is!
Gorgeous. That would be quite a climb/hike!
Thank you, Karen! Definitely very steep to get up to that high trail, once up there its even but you shouldnt have a fear of heights 😉
Greetings from KL, Ron
Here I’ am with my like, stunning photo dear friend 🙂
Prachtig, ongelooflijk mooi ! Bedank voor visit, grtjs!
Spectacular. I’d love to make a return trip to the Pyrenees and walk that path!
The picture is majestic! Beautiful scenery and lighting… loved the video to get a fuller understanding of these mountains and what it takes and move around in them.
A stunning combination of light, colour and texture. Lovely shot.
Thanks a lot, Stevie, always a pleasure to read your commetns, hope everything is ok with you and Chucky 😉
Impressive! Wonderfull pic.

Greetings from Malaysia,
It definitely is/was, Cybele, glad you enjoyed it and hope all is (still) well,
sorry for late reply,
no worries! 🙂
Thanks, enjoy your weekend! 😉
Incredible! What a thrill that must be to walk that trail.
Hi Laurie, in one way I would love to walk it but there are parts that I don´t feel too brave about 🙂
Did go up on the wall on the other side for similar views, but that was reachable by 4×4!
Sorry for late reply, hope to improve there, have a great weekend,
Stunning photo! 😀 The light is amazing!
Hi Alex, thanks for your enthousiasm!
Hope everything goes well in Austria for you,

Inhaling the beauty.
Thank you for showiny your enthousiasm, Marie!
Hope you´re having a great weekend,
It’s a GRAND, beautiful day already.
A fine shot rich in detail and colour and capitalizing on the dramatic lighting.
Hi Louis and thanks for your interest as, the light was a very nice gift on this late afternoon 😉
have a great weekend, Ron
thankyou for passing by, amazing photograph.. looks very beautiful
have such a fear of heights, just looking at your photo makes me want to throw myself down on hands and knees.. its irrational.. have ridden on a cliff path with my son and visited the roof of notra dame, all terrifying experiences trying to overcome it
Hi Maria, thank you for the compliment and I too am not the bravest when it comes to heights, but I always think thats just a smart thing to be 😉
Like I said to others I was happy this path was closed for the day due to bad weather!
Have a great weekend,
Thank you very much, David!
Hope all is (still) well, have a great weekend,
I have ridden horses at high elevations where everyone leaned into the cliff side, but never on such sheer cliffs. I too am scared of heights and would feel it here.The two last photos on the video were stunning. Like the music too.Your photo captures such beautiful detail and light.
Hi Jane, that sounds even more scary with putting your trust in the horse as well! And I must admit this looked a little to steep for me too, so i was happy it was closed that day due to bad weather! It is a stunning location in my opinion so if you just have luck and be their with the right light, you can hardly go wrong 😉
Have a great weekend and sorry for my late reply, I´m very happy reading your comments, thanks for your support!
It sure is, isnt it?! Thanks, autopict for stopping by!
Greetings from KL,
Absolutely amazing shot!
Hello Richard, thanks for the compliment, it´s such a relativle undiscovered beauty and hikes in all categories 😉
How beautiful !
Thanks so much, Vera, and very sorry to be so late in replying, appreciate your enthousiasm a lot!
Hope all is well, greetings from KL,
What a power – beautiful image!
Thank you very much, Anette, it makes me feel so small and I rather like that feeling 😉
What an amazing place….you wouldn’t get me up there! That video was truly hairy….
Haha, well I was lucky it was closed due to bad weather, but would love to see how far I would dare to go 😉
Thanks, Sue, greetings from KL,
Spectacular!!! The hiking on the video was breathtaking! Thank you for the link.
You´re very welcome, thank YOU for taking time out to watch it and take an interest in this photo and story!
All the best to you,
As I was watching the video, one of YouTube’s ubiquitous ads popped up–for funeral services! Wonder what brilliant marketing person thought that ad might be appropriate???
Haha, thats some direct marketing for sure, never heard of any problems on the trail, well a friend of mine was trapped there during a snowstorm, but still came down ok after it 😉
Well this helps to explain why the Spaniards were so comfortable in the American southwest!
Haha, so true, not sure if you saw some of my desert photos from Spain, even more Southwest US 😉
Thanks for stopping by, Derrick!
Greetings from Malaysia,
Thanks very much, Luis, your support means a lot to me!
The light in this is pure magic!
That´s very nice of you to say, Lisa, can you imagine we were in a hurry to hike down to catch the last bus out, but I wasn´t gonna let that take away from taking time to watch these scenes envelop during sunset, walk faster in between 😉
Thanks very much, hope you have a great week,
Looks so beautiful but I don’t fancy the walk! 😮
Hi Wendy, well I did fancy the walk but was relieved it was closed due to weather, not felt very unlucky with that though 😉
Thanks for your interest, hope you´re well!
no no no no NO I will not be watching any such video, the thought is making me queasy and creeped out! That one section looks like it has stairs and a door?
Hahaha, I didnt do it myself, I was lucky it was closed because of snow on the path, but not sure if I would do it otherwise, but watching the video is pretty safe, I think 😉
I know what you mean by the stairs and door and it does look like it, but no, it´s not, that would be too crazy!
Thanks for stopping by and greetings from Malaysia,
Thanks a lot, Ken, it´s a not very wel known to foreigners, but spectacular park, i think!
Greetings from Malaysia,
Thanks so much, YC, thats always a pleasure to hear from you!
hope all is well, greetings,
Absolutely stunning photograph!
Thanks very much, Christopher! The place is so amazing it´s hard not to get some amazing photos when you´re there at the right time 😉
Have a great week, Ron.
This is really great.
And I feel so small. 😉
Thanks, Foster and yeah, ti does make you feel very small, but actually I love that feeling, knowing this will outlive all of us makes me feel very tranquil too…
All the best to you,
Thanks very much, Krister!
All the best from Malaysia, Ron.
Dank je, Harrie!
Ben je al eens die kant op geweest als je in Teraqui zat? Of richting andere canyons van Ordesa?
First of all… amazing image, Ron. Really, really beautiful. I love the colors…
Second of all… I watched the video… and I’m very scared of hights, so I wouldn’t walk there.
Thanks very much, Malin, and although i would maybe dare to do it, I´m very happy the video was made and I live in Malaysia now 😉
Greetings, my friend.
Awesome landscape and image!!!!!
Thanks a lot, Santi, it is an amazing canyon, like many more in that area and very quiet, especially off-season, which makes the experience even more intrigueing!
Greetings from KL, Ron.
Wonderful picture, and no doubt wonderful walk….. but you can have my share.
Haha, totally understandable, Margaret! I was lucky it was closed due to a little snow left on the slopes 😉
Thanks and greetings, Ron.
