The Inertia

San Sebastian or Donostia in Basque is a city at the northwest of Spain, just twenty minutes away from the French border. Donostia is the only surf city in Europe, beautifully surrounded by mountains, green landscapes and cliffs meeting the ocean.

Spending a summer here is to fall in love forever with the city. Between the multicultural ambiance, the excellent food, the concerts, the not-so-warm weather and the surf in the middle of the city, it becomes hard to leave at the end of your stay.

Unfortunately, paradise can’t be like this all year long. The Basque Country is very green due to a lot of rain of course. Winters here are not that pleasant, but in my opinion, the best season is just when fall starts peeking its head around the corner in September.

I took these images during fall when the colors are most romantic, the waves get bigger and light is insanely beautiful.

Agur bero bat!
