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.
