2018/06 Hiking in the Haute Pyrénées

Mid june 2018 I spent a few days with some photographer friends in the Haute Pyrénées.  Each day we hiked in the mountains, starting at around 1400m, the highest you can normally take a vehicle, then following trails to around 1800/1900m.  Magnificent, but very tiring, in part due to carrying a ton of camera, several lenses and a tripod !  We ate in restaurants each evening, then an hour or two to sort the day's photos before an early night.  The weather was magnificent, between 25 et 30°C with a refreshing breeze.

One night we camped out at 1500m (just a sleeping bag, no tent) so as to see and photograph the sunrise.  Unhappily it was rather misty, but an unmissable experience just the same.
