Asturian Landscapes in Slow motion
Sunset – Shooting towards the Asturian coastline in the area of Colunga. The beaches of Espasa and La Isla in the foreground.
El Mirador del Fito – is an excellent viewpoint for the coastline of Ribadesella & Colunga, as well as the landscapes of Picos de Europa. It’s the starting point for many walks over the El Sueve mountain range or a good place to simply stand and stare. We visit quite often and have experienced some marvelous sunrises and sunsets.

Over the past week we have been “experimenting” with some new techniques to capture these views – more abstract, combining longer shutter speeds with intentional camera movement (in the photos below, panning from left to right). As a result I’ve learnt about the workings of the camera as well the creative process.
Sunset – This time slightly inland encompassing the low slopes of El Sueve mountain range.
Sunset – Towards la Sierra de Cuera.
Sunrise – In the direction of the Picos de Europa. 45 minutes before sunrise, foggy and very little light. This was purely experimenting with the camera settings, no real plan. Very abstract but I kind of like the result.
Sunrise – Unfortunately any colour in the sky soon disappeared as the sun rose behind thick cloud
