This wasn’t long into my High Level Pyrenees Route. It was a good day, with lunch beside a lake two hours earlier. I was looking forward to this moment, highlighted in the guide book as a notable viewpoint.

It’s like that when I trek the Pyrenees, or indeed any mountains. The photographic highlights are the walking highlights. I’m not bothered about peaks as such.

I walk to photograph, and photograph as I walk. I actually prefer the colour version of this shot but as an art process it is, occasionally, worth converting to black and white and enjoying both versions with their different moods.
