CFFC: All One Colour in Inland Spain

For some reason Spain has presented me with the most variety of ‘one colour’ shots.

Golden monochrome: the brass incense burner in Santiago de Compostela’s cathedral is bathed in golden light.

Mushroom season was also in full swing in October and people were all over the place carrying little baskets of hand-picked mushrooms destined for someone’s delicious dinner.Mushrooms for sale in Santiago de CompostelaGreen monochrome: I already did a post on Spanish monochromes featuring the obvious all-green monochromes – after all, we were travelling along the ‘Costa Verde’ (Green Coast). Here’s another green shot I missed in that post, a chestnut grove in the Ribeira Sacra.
