Walking the Via la Plata; Spring 2014

Walking the Via la Plata, Spring 2014

March 2014

If you have been following the blog, you will know that we have been walking the Via la Plata in Spain. For those of you who might not be familiar with the walk, it is a route follows the Christian pilgrimage route from Cadiz to Santiago de Compostela. Prior to the Christians using these road, Moor and Romans built and used the road to transport commodities and move armies.

This image is one of several I have taken, in fact I take at least one each day to show the roads and pathways we are on, the weather we are experiencing, and the landscape we are witness.

I am linking this blog post to KatEye-Studio, Photo-Heart Connection; I have followed her blog for sometime now, repeatedly inspired to create images that reflect my experiences; my heart is on the road this month! Check out Kat’s Photo-Heart Connection Blog
