The Sierra Nevada Natural Park (not to be confused with the Sierra Nevada mountains in California) is the Spanish equivalent of one of our National Parks. High in the mountains, there are stunning views and plenty of Ibex!

It totally looks Photoshopped, but it isn’t at all. Colette spotted these five or six mountain goats above us in Spain’s Sierra Nevada Natural Park as we were around 8,000ft elevation, and I lugged 400mm of lens up the hillside and got a couple good shots before they spotted me and moved off. All of them had yellow collars with numbers on them, probably GPS tracking for wildlife management by the park rangers.
