Surprise! At least to me. Since I am currently editing my photos of northern Spain, I decided to ‘paint’ a monochromatic portrait of Spain.
I had planned on a full spectrum of monochromes, but as I sorted through my photos it appeared that northern Spain, along the Costa Verde (Green Coast), was predominately green.

A green tree growing out of green water in Madrid’s Retiro Park.
Lagos de Covadonga.
Green grapes in a village high up in the Picos de Europa.
The other monochrome that showed up was grey. In this case I had almost too much to choose from, natural rock formations and lots of churches and castles made out of the local grey rock.
Dark grey slate makes up the fantastic rock formations on the Beach of the Cathedrals north of Santiago de Compostela.
Weathered stone makes up the peaks in the Picos de Europa.
A carved stone column in the Parador on the River Sil.
Now I just have to find a place for a few hundred ‘GREY & GREEN TOGETHER’ photos of Northern Spain.
