Tomorrow is promising to be a great day. We have a plan to spend the whole day in the mountains, a place where we really like to go. I could organize this as finally tomorrow I don't have any lessons or other commitments, so why not spend the day in nature? I still have some work to finish, although I wanted to go to sleep at some "normal" time. Something like before 1 or 2 a.m. I highly doubt it will happen!
So, the mountains that we will visit tomorrow are not those that are coming in this post. The photos from here are made in one place that we visited with our friends in April. I posted about the village Chulilla and the ruins of the castle, up on the hill.
I was impressed with the views from that place. The feeling was so great, that I wanted to stay there for a whole day or more, but nothing really else can be done there. There are just ruins that are left from the castle, but the landscape... impressive. It is still fresh in my memory, and even more colourful when I watched the videos I shot there. Those few short videos are made now into one.
I didn't want to forget the place. But I can't just store those videos on my phone forever. I will have to erase them (if not today, but one day) so the better option is to put them together and save them in this format on the external hard disk. The photos too.
What made that place so different are those rock formations. The huge vertical walls of the mountain are amazing. For me, just to observe, but when we were there we saw a few people climbing those vertical rocks. Of course, one has to be professional in the field to do that. For us, just ordinary people who like to hike on less dangerous paths, the views are also enough!
The fortress (more precisely what is left of it) is placed on the top of a small hill that can be climbed from the village itself. It has three main spots from where you can enjoy the breathtaking landscape. From the ruin of the tower, we can see the fields and the fertile land, surrounded by the mountains. From the middle of the fortress wall, the village shows itself. The structure of it is a medieval Spanish village, in different levels. Looking towards the north, we see the canyon that surrounds the river Turia.
But all this can be seen better in the video footage that is coming now. I hope you would like to see also those stunning mountains, and maybe also listen to some music?
Well, I played the piano for this occasion, of course at my home. There is a composer, Philip Glass whose music is used as a soundtrack in some documentaries. I especially liked to watch a trilogy, The Qatsi Trilogy (Koyaanisqatsi, Powaqqatsi and Naqoyqats). For some time, I used to put the movie and later just the tracks, as background music in our home.
Though I play here another composition, Opening, and I play it on the piano, it reminds me of that trilogy. And my video footage is not a real documentary, for sure, but it is just a small glimpse of a place I really enjoyed.
