A stormy night!

Besides Fisterra, near Muxía is another popular pilgrimage destination after reaching Santiago de Compostela. The village at the Costa da Morte has less than 5000 inhabitants, about as big as Fisterra and forms the southern headland of the Atlantic bay Ría de Camariñas. A few scattered pilgrims are on their way, hardly any tourism visible. After the stormy evening yesterday, when I had a Polbo á feira (Pulpo a la gallega) again, the weather today is mild, almost windless, sunny with a cloudless, deep blue sky. I use this for a walk to Monte Corpiño. On the way there I discover the Faro and of course I have to take pictures directly at the water. Finally I get physical contact to the Atlantic Ocean when the spray of a wave splashes higher than expected. Everything is not so bad. That must be the case. Everything very impressive – the WOW feeling – comes up! I crawl around on the boulders in front of the sea for a while before I set off for Mirador del Monte Corpiño. From there you have an overwhelming 360° panorama, especially with crystal clear air like today. I decide to stay until after sunset.

Maybe I will be able to experience the green glow at the last moment of sunset. Until sunset it is still half an hour. So I lie in wait and wait. The Atlantic, the sun, the clear air – it is already an elementary experience of nature. I make a video of the last minute before the sun disappears. Well, I didn’t see anything. However, a short color change around the sun towards yellow-green can be identified later on the video clip. So it could have been a Green Flash after all, although at sunset in the distance it became a little hazy, which normally prevents the Green Flash. Nevertheless I am very satisfied with the evening and also my leg makes great progress every day.
