The Meseta

This photo is from my new photo book Devotional Trails: Spaces and solitude along Spanish pilgrimage routes. It is both inside and used as a cover photo. This one, like most I took, were taken while walking with a rucksack on my back. The Meseta is a long flat stretch of plains that goes roughly from Burgos to Astorga, if one is walking the Camino Frances pilgrimage trail to Santiago de Compostela. Because I started in April there were fewer peregrinos (pilgrims) like myself so there were more quiet moments. In summer the Camino tends to be packed with 1000s making their way west to Santiago.

New Book

In April and March of 2017, I walked from St. Jean Pied de Port in France to Santiago de Compostela and after that to the Atlantic at Finisterre (the end of the earth). This was along the Camino France and Camino Fisterra pilgrimage rote that have been in existence for over 1000 years. The weather was great (except for a day of snow and hail) and the chance to walk through small villages with atmospheric Romanesque churches was highly rewarding. I made a photo book a few months after and put it on Blurb. The title is Devotional Trails: Spaces and solitude along Spanish pilgrimage trails.
