Thanks for posting. Lovely trees. A shame that no neutral backdrop was used. Something that would improve the show massively in future.

Where in North West Spain was the exhibition?

I've never been to that Celtic part of the world where oil spills ruined the environment, and a lot of people not so long ago...

I'm glad to see that not only some of you are keeping a part of nature alive, but that art is still thriving there. thumbs up

The oil spill is almost forgotten, we fought against it and almost everything is as previous. This was so thanks to many people that work at the sea, and many of the voluntiers from all over that came here to help clean the mess. "Nunca Mais" (Not any more).

The congress was held in Silleda at the Semana Verde event, close to Santiago de Compostela.

The pictures where taken at the stands, but also they where taken (tree by tree) with a plain background, but I do not have the pictures yet. I promise to put some when I have them.

Thank you all.
