    Hi fellow M43 users,

    My husband and I have been working on a tourism related website for the Basque Country which encompasses an area within northern Spain and southern France. We thought we would share the website and some images from the site since all of the photos were taken with the mirco 4/3 system. We use the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and before that some shots were taken with an Olympus E-P1. For lenses, we use the Voightländer 17.5mm & 25mm, as well as the Panasonic Lumix 7-14mm and the Sigma 60mm.

    Here is a link to the website:
    Eusko Guide – Basque Country Tourism

    And here are some sample images (hope you enjoy them :smile:):

    Great shots and spectacular places! Third, fourth and the second one from the end are my favorites. If you could add the names of the places, would be much appreciate.

    Wow, really nice.
    I'm glad I scrolled down past the disappointing skies of the first two pictures.
    The bay with the striations is fascinating.

    Talking about your e-P1 : in my opinion you're more likely to get a beautiful landscape scene with that first time than the E-M5 which I think just takes more processing to get the same lovely colours.

    ...in that case I really like the balcony in the fine arts museum, and the Flysch Formation photos.
