Walking in the French Pyrenees

Just getting the processing finished from our mid-September trip. This is the Cirque de Troumouse, not the most famous, but a great walk to an amazing sight. K70 + DA 16-85mm. A few humans left in here and there for a sense of scale!

That must have been a mindblowing holiday. If I have to pick one out it's #2 but they are all impressive.

All great. Have you been on the little yellow train??.
Born again biker with lots of Pentax bits. Every day I wake up is a good day. I'm so old I don't even buy green bananas.

The last one and number 3 for me, although they all come together to make a very nice set.

My only slight criticism (just my opinion) is the size of the images - No.3 reveals so much more clarity and detail (because it is that little bit bigger), I'd live to see the rest at similar resolution

Thanks, all, glad you found the scenery as amazing as we did! A few more to come shortly, I hope.

Too many years ago to say, Vic! Though it runs much further to the Mediterranean end of the Pyrenees than the Central Pyrenees we prefer for walking these days.

John, I've been puzzled when you have made similar comments in the past, as I thought all photos were shown at 1000px on the longest side, so they all show pretty much the same size. So I looked back at my folder of resized/ready to post photos and eventually twigged that the resizing process I've been using (in Photoshop Elements, because it's dead easy, though I use Affinity Photo for the actual processing of the RAW files) gives 1000px on the horizontal side all the time, so a portrait-style image will look bigger on screen because the vertical sides are obviously longer than the horizontal. I'll remember that in future and see if it can be used to advantage!
