Arcos II

The second day we were in Arcos de las Salinas rippled pretty, Morning visit the ancient salt that give the village its name. There are still remains of the pond where the water became dry, the water pumping windmills and church. Also the place is quite secluded and almost no light pollution. We had a very good day:

Then we were talked about Dueñas, a town like many other abandoned and not wonder… with the SUV cost us quite get, is tired and there was too much grace to go around, especially at night, so we made some shots daytime and towards Arcos again.

In the afternoon, after lunch we went for a walk around Arcos, a path that bordered a stream and we will find this waterfall:

Then we went to dinner and back to Salinas, but otherwise:

And with the church:

I have taken this week to publish the post, but do not complain that it’s very full. To top it off, the soundtrack will put a big Spanish guitar master that has left us this week with a song I had not heard until my mate Ivan interpreted in a hearing (that hard!) Is Czardars V. Monti:


  1. Molt xules David! M’encanta el tractament dels hdr

    • Moltes gràcies Sergio per la visita i el comentari.
      El HDR el fà un plugin que vaig comprar per a lightroom era donationware i crec que vaig pagar 3 euros o així, el pots trobar per ací.
      M’agrada perquè no és exagerat, queden prou naturals, per al meu gust, clar…
