Descending the Espigüete Peak, by Félix Sánchez-Tembleque

It was a very good journey with some friends in January, 2004. The Espigüete Peak is located at a northern Spain mountains range, the Palentinas, and has climbing routes from AD (the one we choose) to ED.

    awesome photograph. it tells a real story, and that is what i like most in shots. the walker up front is farther ahead than the other man, almost telling the one behind to “come along,” perhaps even, “hurry up.” this shows the long arduous journey they have been embarking upon. this photo portrays this excellently.

    the photo also portrays nature against man, and in a splendid way!

    i also love the movement and the lighting in this photo. the men walking, as well as the winding mountains, portray great movement. the lighting is exquisite.

    and well, it’s just cool!
