The sunset tree
I was returning home from a long day hiking in a winter forest when I noticed that it was the sunset time. Now, I had wanted to shoot this tree for a few weeks already, but thought that I was too tired and that I would come back here some other time. After driving a few hundred feet further away I decided to make a U-turn and come back for the shot as I really liked the colors of a setting sun as the backdrop for the lone tree. I am glad I did make myself comeback for this shot:)

The full circle of life
A lot of times when trekking in the forest we are reminded of the circle of life that apllies to all the living things... There is a time to be born and the time to die...

A lonely birch
Pine grove in winter
I have long wanted to shoot a series of forest landscape images similar in style to a famous Russian landscape painter Ivan Shishkin. I absolutely love his work and it really helps me with my photography. There is a lot to learn from Shishkin's paintings in terms of composition and lighting and studying his paintings has helped me tremendously...

A dark day in the mountains
It was a really dark day in Picos de Europa mountains when a small part of the skies cleared up to reveal bright light of the sun somewhere above the clouds...

Village of Sotres, Asturias
Famous for its strong tasting, home made Cabrales cheese, Sotres is also the highest village in Picos de Europa mountain range and all of the Asturias region. Overlooking the village from the east are the snow covered pics of Peña Maín (1,609m)
Fornalutx, in the hills above Soller, calls itself the prettiest village in Spain and it is hard to disagree, unless you accept the claims of its neighbour Biniaraix. It is a quiet little place at the top of the Soller valley and has wonderful mountain views. The architecture of the village is of stone and red roof tiles, with most buildings' windows also having green painted wooden shutters. The stone façades on the majority of these houses have been exposed in recent years by removing the original render to give the buildings a more rustic appearance than was originally the case. Built on different levels, many of the higher streets are pedestrianised and cobbled, with grassy paths leading off into the orchards and farms to the north.

Crushing waves of the Cantabrian sea
Mighty waves of the Cantabrian sea crushing at jurassic cliffs of Asturia's Costa Verde
Cows are as much a symbol of Asturias as its snow capped mountains and you will see them roaming around pretty much everywhere. I met these two while hiking around Covadonga lakes in Picos de Europa mountains.

Cala Conills, San Telmo
Cala Conills is one of the small calas (beaches) in the village of San Telmo (aka Sant Elm) in Mallorca, Spain. I just hope that I was able to capture all of the beauty and true colors of its azure waters and pine tree mountains that surround it... In the top left corner of the pano you can see part of the Dragonera island...

panorama of Naranjo de Bulnes (Picu Urriellu) and Picos de Europ
This is an overview of Naranjo de Bulnes (Picu Urriellu) and the Picos de Europa mountains from mirador Pedro Udaondo. Pedro Udaondo was a spanish alpinist who loved Picos de Europa as much as his own life... He died in an accident in the Western Massif of the Picos. This breathtaking view point, which was previously named mirador de Cabrales, was renamed Pedro Udaondo in his memory.

Mallorca is mostly known for its azure waters, picturesque bays and coves and charming little towns along the coast... But if you venture deep inside the island and away from the coast you will discover its amazing countryside along with its unique villages, towns and landscapes just like this...
