I got luck at with this one all the others were way too fast for me. Must have scared it stiff.
I know what I will spend my time on when I retire. Pétanque aka boules is a great little and simple to understand game that I can get the hours to fly way with. Didn’t have time to have a game this summer while in France, though I know a good place here in London. Anyone want a game and got the balls?
Wild strawberries are just too yummy and as you can see I nibbled one before I got the camera out. Still working on becoming a real photographer 🙂
This photo was taken while we had a little breather while walking the La Montagne Fleurie. In the background you can just make out the road up and over Col du Tourmalet (2115m) the highest pass/road in the Hautes-Pyrénées.
Ohh, it has just hit me that this is my 100th photo on photos@woollypigs, hurrah! 🙂
Ziggy: I’ve got it! Let’s flap over to the east side of the jungle. They’ve always got a bit of action, a bit of a swingin’ scene, all right.
Buzzie: Aw, come off it. Things are right dead all over.
Ziggy: You mean you wish they were.
Dizzy: [serious] Very funny.
We have just come back from France and the Pyrenees where we spend few days. To bad this year the altitude didn’t agree with me. So not so many photos and walks, next time I promise.
We have just booked out tickets for our trip to the Pyrenees again this year. Lovely little spot in the world. As a reader of this blog you will have seen a few pictures for that night we spend camping at 2400 meters 🙂 But it was a brilliant evening and a stunning spot to do a bit of camping.
Two year ago we were in the Pyrenees with our friends. We managed to cycle up the famous cols – Col D’Aspin, Horquette D’Arcizans and Tourmalet.
This photo was taken while climbing up to Horquette D’Arcizans, a very beautiful place and a great ride. Below is a little panorama taken from the top of Horquette D’Arcizans. (click on the pano to see a big version)
Let me introduce you one of my favourite form of photography, infra red. This is why I truly love my f707 since it can take IR. So be prepared to see many more photos in infra red.
This shot is take @ around 2000 meters right above Andorra in the Pyrenees.
In ’09 we climbed up to 2400m and camped for a night where we enjoyed the sunset. Later that evening we enjoyed the stars and the milkyway which was very clear. And pretty much bright enough walk around. Along with the clear sky I saw in ’90 when I was travelling around the islands of Greece it was the best star gazing I have done.
Over the last two years we gotten back our camping bug. This photo was taking in ’09 in the Pyrenees where we were on holiday. We hiked up to 2400m and pitched out tent and enjoyed our picnic and enjoyed a beautiful sunset before bed time. We woke up around midnight and looked a the stars and milkyway which was so clear and bright that we see lake next to us.
This was probably the best camping in a long time, stunning views, great hike and good company.
