The day I took this photo I was in a village near to El Escorial in Madrid, spending a weekend with the climbing team of Trangoworld.
After two days of shooting in the Spanish bouldering paradise I decided that this time I did not want to limit my work to doing action shots. I felt I needed portraits of the athletes.
So I decided to try to mount the tripod with the camera pointing at the sun, and my fisheye lens. I asked the whole team to pass pretending to look into a hole, to infinity.
Undoubtedly I got my objective with the help of Nacho Sánchez, his weather-beaten skin, the serious look, the sun at the perfect height and the tape on his fingers showing the effort that they make to conquer those routes.
