Spain makes up a significant part of SW Europe and is a country rich in diverse landscapes. One most commonly thinks of arid Mediterranean scrub, sandstone cliffs and azure blue seas, or mile upon mile of sandy beaches. In fact, much of Spain is quite temperate, with a cool, wet climate, with large accumulations of snow on the mountain ranges.
Alister lived in the northern province of Asturias for a year while preparing images for his Night Photography ebook, but have extended his exploration to include the whole northern Spanish coast over the years. The coves are secluded and hard to find with only a few of them sign posted. Exploring this coast is a long term commitment. Great contrasts in geology create a coastline rich in change and feel, with many rock types making the surface and shoreline.
