Brief adventure on a snowy Tuesday

I had three hours in between classes and my husband was working the afternoon shift. There was snow in the mountains so it only took us a couple of minutes to put on warm clothes and head out of the door. We don't have a proper sledge, so we took a couple of plastic bags to slide down the mountain. It was the best 3 hours e've had in a while. 

All photographs taken with the Fujifilm Xt10+16mm f1.4

Favorite photos from 2017

These are some of my favorite photographs from 2017, probably not the best, but there is something about them that I really like. 

Hoping 2018 brings more adventures, new projects and lots of inspiration to keep creating!

Enjoy!

We drove to the desert

I had been planning to go back to this wonderful place for a few months now. It's 2.40hrs away from home and it's called Bardenas Reales. An incredible arid and desolate place that offers incredible photo opportunities. My brother and I are both on holidays at the moment, so I asked him if he wanted to tag along and he quickly said yes. We packed our lunch, water bottles, mountain boots and cameras, and we headed out early in the morning. 

It wasn't cold, about 8ºC and very windy, but totally worth it, don't you think?. The light kept changing constantly, the clouds came and went, and by the end of the day it ended up raining. However, I only wish this place were closer, so that I could drive around and explore all those peaks more often.

Hope you like this set and let me know in the comments which one is your favorite.

All these photos were taken with the Fujifilm XT10 and the 16mm f1.4

Exploring Japan

On September 1st, we took a long flight to Japan. Our plan was to explore the highlights of the country in 25 days. We traveled by train and we walked more than ten kilometres everyday, and even though we arrived to our Airbnb apartments exhausted, we still loved every single bit of it. We didn't have the chance to wander around many rural areas, so I pushed myself and tried to focus on mostly photographing everyday life around the cities we visited.

For photographers out there: Before we left I had doubts about what gear to bring on this trip. I wanted to travel light so I took the Canon 6D for landscapes and the Fujifilm XT1 for urban shots. I had a slight idea of what would happen once we arrived, and I totally confirmed it on the very first day: all these photos (and the other +2000 I took) , except for two of them on this post were shot with the Fuji XT1 with the 18-55mm and the 23mm f1.4. There's something I've learnt from this trip and that is to try to travel light with these tiny but powerful cameras on future trips. 

Hope you like this set! Sayonara!

It was worth it

It took me a while to get out of bed but as soon as I saw that the mountains were covered in fog and it was drizzling, I made a coffee, grabbed my camera and got in the car. Two hours later, I got back home, soaking wet and with a few mosquito bites. It was worth it though. It always is.
