Withered
Title: Withered
Location: Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM
Notes: After all the rain of recent months, it’s been quite dry for a while and it hasn’t taken long for the mud along the canal towpath to crack up, looking like it’s never seen a drop of water.

Spain Day 8 – Capileira & Pampaneira

Posted by Caz on Friday, 28th March 2014

We had a lovely little hike along the mountain trail just north of the pretty village of Capileira this morning, taking a picnic with us to eat along the way. There was plenty of rustic life to see!

We also enjoyed the iconic chimneys on the rooftops of Capileira – each looking like a man with a hat and an individual character:

We also visited the picturesque village of Pampaneira to indulge in a spot of shopping and make a few more photos of the colourful wares on show:

Spain Day 7 – Órgiva Market & Casita Florita

Posted by Caz on Thursday, 27th March 2014

We had a free day today to do as we pleased. Originally I had planned to take a drive to the coast, but although I was feeling much better than a couple of days ago, I still didn’t feel up to travelling too far. Along with some of the others from the group, I took a walk into Órgiva to visit the weekly Market in the town square. There are always photo opps to be had when the market is in town!

The afternoon was spent quietly pottering around the villa and its neighbouring Casita garden – the pretty Casita Florita.

This evening we all enjoyed dinner out at a local restaurant, a lovely way to round off the day.

Spain Day 6 – Artists’ Exchange, Alcázar

Posted by Caz on Wednesday, 26th March 2014

Ken arranged for us to visit his artist friend Meg Robinson at her studio in the pretty little village of Alcázar today. Meg is an inspirational lady and showed us some very original work. She talked to us about her artistic process which was a revelation.

Meg was kind enough to give us a tasty lunch. Then we were free to wander around her amazing house and the village for an hour or so to find our pictures.

As well as seeing plenty of colour, I also noticed the textures of The Church Door. I was surprised to find the local school abandoned and open for exploration – I wasn’t expecting to do any more urbex today!

Spain Day 5 – Sick Day

Posted by Caz on Tuesday, 25th March 2014

Unfortunately I was quite poorly during the night and all day today. So I stayed at the house while the others went out exploring. Ken had given us the challenge of making pictures which break the photographic rules. There was a brief period when I didn’t feel too bad and went for a little walk in the garden with the camera, but eventually I had to admit defeat and went back to bed.
