Claramunt

Claramunt is a very small village on top of a mountain. I can see it from Tercui. There is no electricity; the water is what the rain brings. There lives only one woman: Ramonita, and her 4 dogs. Once a month she gets foodsupply from the community of Tremp; which is a right in Spain. She came to Tercui by foot to visit her friend Carolina. It’s a 4 hour walk. We brought her back by 4wheel drive.

    Mooi, vooral die twee in de kerk, prchtig licht! De rest is ook mooi sfeerbeeld en tof altijd die verhalen van mensen die voor een solitair bestaantje in die doprjes kiezen, bizonder. Geniet ervan, groet, Ron.

    • Hola, Ron. Het verbaast me soms hoe ‘goed’ de kerkjes in dat soort verlaten dorpjes er nog uit zien, t.o.v. de overige ruïnes. En de sfeer is er meestal magisch. Zeker van genoten; maar het zit er alweer op; vanochtend geland in Rotterdam. Gelukkig hebben we de foto’s nog. Adios!

  2. A great set my friend. I love “Carolina” with the silhouette wedged between the rich patterns and “Claramunt church interior” with the balanced composition of lit fragments. It looks like you’re getting a lot of good photos; I look forward to seeing more.

    • Amigo, those lost villages are great and those two women were a bit lonely and sad on the one hand; but strong and fun on the other. That’s what I tried to capture. See you soon!
