Adobe Spark Photo Story – El Caminito Del Rey

22 July 2016

El Caminito del Rey (English: The King’s little pathway) is a walkway, pinned along the steep walls of a narrow gorge in El Chorro, near Ardales in the province of Málaga, Spain. The name is often shortened to Camino del Rey (English: King’s pathway). The walkway had fallen into disrepair and was partially closed for over a decade. After four years of extensive repairs and renovations, the walkway re-opened in 2015. It has been known in the past as the “world’s most dangerous walkway” following five deaths in 1999 and 2000.

El Caminito del Rey

The original path was constructed of concrete and rested on steel rails supported by stanchions built at around 45 degrees into the rock face. It deteriorated over the years and there were numerous sections where part or all of the concrete top had collapsed. The result was large open-air gaps bridged only by narrow steel beams or other supports.

Hunting light, using the ancient instincts of the hunt, I plan, I reconnoitre, I watch, I wait, I take aim, I shoot… but instead of bringing death, I create… and make a moment of light, a moment in time… immortal.
