II CONCURSO INTERNACIONAL DE FOTOGRAFIA DE NATURALEZA

2019

Ficha Reportaje - Galería de Honor

Guardians of Summits

All pictures of this project were taken at the Spanish Sistema Central mountain range. The subject I chose is Spanish Ibex (Capra pyrenaica), an endemic species of wild goat from the Iberian Peninsula. These ibexes were threatened by trophy hunting during the last century, and two of its four subspecies were wiped out. Also here in central Spain, our endemic subspecies has been on the edge of extinction. In spite of that, this singular animal kept away from disappearance. I personally admire its stamina and strength against different disadvantages, either human or environmental. So I wanted to transmit somehow that toughness throughout seasons: from raw winter to torrid summer, when the light usually turns out too hard and you must be more creative. Also, I took pictures in the temperate seasons, with warm lighting of youth games or chases and dense mists covering risky cliffs. Nevertheless, winter is the most exciting period for photographing at high altitudes. When the snow covers almost everything, the landscape becomes not just beautiful, but also really hostile for life. Surprisingly, extreme temperatures do not seem to be an impediment for carrying on with its lives, even for flirting in the middle of a blizzard!
