Camino de Santiago Photo of the Week – October 14, 2012

Recompensa (Reward) – Joan Garriga

This week’s photo was shot by Joan Garriga, a mechanic from Tordera, Spain during a pilgrimage in May of 2011. Joan says of the shot:

“The camino can be hard, even very hard, but it has its reward, even at this stage where it puts us to the test… You breathe the Camino, live with the pilgrims and locals, enjoy beautiful scenery… it was undoubtedly the adventure of my life.”

This photo was taken in Felgueiras, Viana do Castelo, Portugal, using a Canon PowerShot SX210 IS.
