Asturias

La Basilica de Covadonga is a stunning construction in the middle of the Picos de Europa. It's such a tourist draw that getting an original view is a challenge but I could see the perspective I wanted on the craggy hills opposite the Basilica - in terms of accessibility, probably one of the toughest scenes I've shot. After fighting through dense gorse, rocks and wild rose bushes - destroying a jacket in the process - I was rewarded by this misty scene unfolding in a clearing above a small cliff edge... I'd love to go back one day and re-shoot the whole scene under a more dramatic sky
