And this is  one of the most famous processions of the Easter of Spain in the city of Cuenca. It is popularly known as the "Procession of the drunken", "Las turbas". It represents the ominous way of Christ to the Calvario when the people of Jerusalem mock at him.

HP5 developed with HC-110 (H)

11.c: In this photograph you see the image of "Christ".



12.c and 13.c: In these I catched the people that mock at Him





Cheers!

Antonio, to me they are absolutely amazing!! I prefer the first "batch" of TriX on HC110. I love the tones, the composition, the textures...

Well done grasshopper :)

I remember those from last year, and again these are fantastic. I'm not a religious person anymore, but to be honest, I miss the rites.

great images of these traditional rites.

as a nation with mostly Roman Catholics the Holy Week is celebrated here as well.

people flock to see Sinakulo (cenacle / cenakulo) in their provinces and or people who do penitensya (repentance)
