Tom, I have been away for a month and missed many of all your amazing photos from you travels to Spain. Work.... travels and work... ;o(

However I know there are many fantastic photos in there and I will check them carefully these coming days. Do you have a webpage or a blog somewhere where we can read about the route you took during this journey?

About this photo then... just amazing pose! Truly fantastic!
How long have you had this great lens that you used here?

Best regards/Bengt
