Twilight

Vall de Nuria is a high mountain valley. Very popular with skiers in winter. If you go hiking outside the ski slopes you can admire a wonderful landscape with many watercourses, waterfalls and a lot of nature. Vall de Núria near the border to France in the Comarca Ripollès in the north of Catalonia, is an important religious place. Since the mountain valley is car-free, a cogwheel railway (the Cremallera de Núria) runs from the valley town of Ribes de Freser via Queralbs into the valley; at the top station there are 1.967 meters the Santuari de la Mare de Déu de Núria, the sanctuary of Our Lady of Núria, the hermit's chapel of Sant Gil, a hotel, a small hydroelectric power station and some lifts.

Dragonstone

This is a composite! I made it from different photos I took at Gaztelugatxe. Gaztelugatxe (Dragonstone in Game of Thrones) is a small Island on the coast of the Biscay. Bermeo, Basque Country (Spain) and it was one of the Film Locations from Game of Thrones.

Beautiful Biskaya

Next to Gaztelugatxe Gaztelugatxe is a small Island on the coast of the Biscay. Bermeo, Basque Country (Spain). On the Island stands a hermitage. The bridge to the Island is handmade. The small church, 80 metres above sea level, dates from the 10th century. In the year 1053 it was donated, by don Íñigo López, Lord of Biscay, to the monastery of San Juan de la Peña near Jaca in Huesca. Medieval burials from the 9th and 12th centuries have been found on the esplanade and in the hermitage. In 1593 it was attacked and sacked by Francis Drake. Among other incidents, it has caught fire several times. On November 10, 1978, it was destroyed in one such fire. Two years later, on June 24, 1980, it was re-inaugurated. The hermitage belongs to the parish of San Pelayo in Bakio. The hermitage also houses votive offerings from sailors who survived shipwrecks.

Belchite Night

Between August 24 and September 7, 1937, loyalist Spanish Republican and rebel General Franco's forces in the Spanish Civil War fought the Battle of Belchite in and around the town. After 1939 a new village of Belchite was built adjacent to the ruins of the old, which remain a ghost town as a memorial to the war. (I combined different exposures here)
