Uig, Isle of Lewis

My base in Rheinigidale worked well on Harris, now its time to explore Lewis. I shacked-up in the Otter Bunkhouse in Uig which was clean, bright with nice views. Lewis is much larger with a huge coastline by comparison so no weather  would stop my journey.

Rupit photographed in black and white

This is another medieval village located 100km north of Barcelona and lies 800m up on hills in Catalonia, Spain. You can visit 12th Century churches, old buildings as well as carefully arranged fields which hint to its working life. Nowadays its charm attracts many visitors. Usually I shoot in colour, but for a change here is Rupit photographed in black and white.

Castellfollit de la Roca, Village on a Cliff

Castellfollit de la Roca exists from its peculiar geological spit of land with sheer cliff edges. The village sits on a basalt crag 50m high above the valley floor and 1km long. The crag was formed from a lava flow in this volcanic region and the surrounding land was eroded from the two nearby rivers Fluvia and Turonell. Like Besalú, the streets are dark and narrow, but ooze charm.
