A photographer's dream
Raining. It was like this that dawn broke on the day we had decided to go up the Ordesa Valley on a photographic walk which would last 5 hours. I read that going up the valley and coming down was a question of 5 hours. It took me more than twice the time. I took photos of everything that seemed interesting and worth seeing.
It is a really fascinating place. Along the way I crossed paths with a fellow photographer who was surprised to see a GPS attached to a camera, and it was clear that he wasn’t bothered.
After about 3 hours, I had arrived eventually in the tourist part of the valley, "Cola de Caballo". However, the best photos were still to come. After an hour and a half ascent, I met the same group as before who were now descending. “Is it far to the refuge?” “At least an hour”. They were now returning but I knew that I was so tired, that I would have to spend a night – a wasteful night - in the refuge in the high mountain. The photos, overwhelming. Just getting there I found a beautiful plain with some ascents, they were frozen and I occasionally put my foot in the ice, but it was really beautiful.
