Spanish skies


I'm a big sky kind of gal, and sometimes the sky just isn't big enough to suit me. In Saint Jean de Luz, with the ocean vast beside us, it usually is. And when we went hiking on the Spanish coast with Julien's mother a couple of weeks ago, it was heart-swelling huge, so big I often had to stop and soak it in, to try to expand into it. 


Coast near Jaizkebel

With a sky like this, I feel complete.

Click on the collage for a larger version. The texture of the clouds in the bottom right picture is especially neat. Small photos just don't do it justice though.

The sky is the limit!

(and yup, I sometimes felt suffocated in Switzerland, not enough sky and horizon :p)

J might like to live in the Pyrenees, but I won't be able to live in a valley. :(

Me neither! They are nice places to visit, but that's about it for me. :p

I'm with you on the skies thing; it's why I so love the US West - mountains (essential to have visible elevation change) and big skies!

That quality of openness and space of the US West was really one of the things that tugged the hardest at my heartstrings after I decided to settle on the other side of the Atlantic.

Here's hoping your new country of residence gives you at least some of that.

Thanks. I don't think I did the sky justice, but it is nice to have a reminder of such a lovely day. :)
