Fuji TX2 (XPAN) + Kodak Ektachrome E100
By the time we headed back to catch the cable car down from the Rhune, dusk was just round the corner. This last shot I took already had dimming light, emphasized by the limited dynamic range of the slide film. It’s a wonderful place though (I wish I could do a dawn from up there) and I highly recommend if it you’re in the area.

In order to get to the Rhune summit, you can take a famous cablecar that’s been running for close tu 100 years, or you can walk. We did the former. On top is a flat, rocky expanse where the Pottocks and some sheep graze peacefully. I don’t know how full of tourists it normally is, but when we were there is was quiet and very peaceful. That’s what I tried to reflect in this picture.
*Pottok in the Mountains*
Fuji TX2 (XPAN) + Kodak E100 Ektachrome
The Pottok is a semi-feral breed of ponies found only in the Pyrenean mountains, and more specifically in Basque country. They’re quite big (as ponies go) and you’re not supposed to approach them too close lest they get angry. Some tourists had gotten close to this one and I waited ages for them to leave before I could take the shot. I kinda wish the horse had attacked them, would have been quicker !
*From the Rhune*
XPAN 2 + Kodak E100
In August I spent a week in the Basque country, probably one of my favourite places in France. We went up the Rhune, one the low peaks west of the Pyrénées, near the Basque coast. It was still magnificent. It was my first ever roll of new Kodak E100, and to be honest it came out way more subdued than what I expected. I still like the result a lot all in tones of greens and blues.
This is one of the first shots I did that I was really pleased with. It was shot in Saint-Jean Pied de Port in the Basque Country and features their main export: espadrilles! It’s now available on my store and you can order prints from anywhere in the world just by clicking on the links below the photo.
