Alimoche

June, 2009-2011, Spanish pre-Pyrenees. What is the meaning of the blogsite’s name? The name is that of a bird, one of the smallest and funniest vultures: the Egyptian vulture (el alimoche, le percnoptère d’Egypte, de aasgier). It is also the smartest of them all! If you see this bird eating a raw egg, you’ll understand.

Foggy sun

Aug. 7, 2017. La Palma, Roque de los Muchachos. The “calima” is striking again, with a thick cloud which came into sight this morning… This lead to a spectacular morning view of the setting (full) Moon in a bright orange colour. Late this afternoon, the Sun set into the dusty layer and disappeared well before reaching the horizon!

Wild flowers (III)

June 25th, 2017. Pont de Suert, Catalunya. Highly perched on its rock in the sierra, the little village of Adons is a place full of emotion and awesome landscape. The perfect spot to start the excursion and look for the presence of wildlife.

The game of water (I)

June 23rd, 2017, Vall de Boi, Catalunya, Spain. In the high valley of the Sant Marti river, at the border of the National Parc de Aigues Tortes, lie the estanys del Pessó. El estany del Pessó de Baix is a beautiful one, with its water gently gliding away along the slope toward the peaceful valley… The higher estany lurks beyond the pass.
