This is a shot of a pair of storks, nesting on a bell tower in a village church in Spain. I was pushing hard to get to Bavaria on time, so I didn't take a single photograph on my way there. On the way back though, I tried to make up for it.
Over the course of those weeks, northern Spain turned from a beautiful green - except the fields of poppies, which were an impossible red - to shades of gold and brown. I was surprised by the difference, but I suppose that's only because, up in the Alps, everything was still so green.
I did some painting in Bavaria, and even sold a few, but I struggled with the change of palette. Portugal, even in the winter, and even with the sea, has far fewer greens and blues than Bavaria in the Spring.
Here's the route I drove.
