Today in the highest peak of Matagalls, in the heart of my country, Catalonia.
First day of 2009, for all the friends of TN, with love

Montseny is a mountain range west of the coastal hills north of Barcelona.
The area was created a national park and roughly occupies a triangle created by the AP-7, C-17 and C-25 roads. It contains the highest mountains in the area south of the Pyrenees and dominates the valley south of Girona.
The national park was made a UNESCO biosphere reserve in 1978.[1]
Looking up at El Turó de l'Home from the south
The highest peaks are made up of El Turó de l'Home (1,706 m), and Les Agudes (1,703 m). To the south is a plateau of La Calma. The highest peaks in this part of the Park are Puig Drau (1,344 m) and El Matagalls (1,697 m). In between is the Valley of the Tordera.
The Park is home to a wide variety of fauna from Mediterranean to alpine. There are also a large number of megalithic structures in the park.

Hi Ferran,

This sunset is just about as far as one can get from an Arizona sunset. The huge sun shining down on the snow covered landscape is wonderful. I am so curious about who those footprints might belong to. Looking forward to more and more shots from you in 2009.

Hello Ferran,

Thank you
Have a beautiful day

Hello Ferran,
Good light. And landscape.
In addition there are interesting notes.
TFS and all the best in 09..

hello Ferran

Looks icy and slippery, so how did you reach this place without falling with your equipment?

Interesting to see the strong light reflected off the ice. It really does not look like a sky, more like a background screen :)

tfs, bill

Hallo Ferran
A very beautiful visual and artistic presentation of this lovely but cold looking landscape. The sun shining down on the snow is just magic and looks like a star. A great image, which I liked a lot, and which conveys the depth and cold of winter. Thank you very much for sharing. Enjoy your day.
Kind regards
