Fiona and I had a wonderful 8 days walking in Northern Spain. Some days we saw not one single person as we traversed the hills and common lands. As we walk along this field the lone tree struck me as it looked just like I felt – enjoying our solitude in a big wide open space. A space away from the noise and distraction of busy places, a space we could think and feel.
I also loved the textures of the summer grass, the sky and the hills and then there was the opening in the wall inviting us through for another adventure. I know the image is simple and I was tempted to play with textures and and and … in the end, we had a simple, very real kind of holiday so the simplicity and realness of the image is retained.
