Day #2282Title: Rayas En El Pavimento
Location: Granada, Spain
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 18-55mm EF f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Notes: I had an hour or so to wander around Granada this morning before heading to the airport for the flight home. These attractive shadows caught my attention during my walk.

Day #2281Title: Patio De Los Arrayanes
Location: Alhambra Palace, Granada, Spain
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 17-40mm EF f/4 L USM
Notes: This is one of the iconic views of the Alhambra Palace which I explored today. The weather was fantastic and I nearly walked myself off my feet.

Day #2280

Posted by Caz on Saturday, 29th March 2014

Day #2280Title: Dos Cuadros Y Un Árbol
Location: Lanjerón, Spain
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 18-55mm EF f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Notes: The weather was rather grey and wet today, which is the only time this week it’s been grotty. I spent a couple of hours in Lanjerón, the next town west of Órgiva, on the way back to Granada. I found this curiously modern building, in amongst the more traditional Spanish architecture on the edge of town.

Day #2279

Posted by Caz on Friday, 28th March 2014

Day #2279Title: Los Cuatro Hombres De Capileira
Location: Capileira, Spain
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 70-300mm EF f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM
Notes: When Ken first advertised he was planning to run photo workshops in the Alpujarras, Spain, one of the photographs which captivated my attention was of these distinctive chimneys in Capileira. The location has been on the agenda all week, but today the light was perfect and we got some great shots. There are hundreds of them dotted about the rooftops in Capileira – each looking like a little man with their own individual character. You could almost give them names – so here you are – Pedro, Juan, Xavier and Manuel, looking out over the mountains.

Day #2278Title: Atrapa El Viento
Location: Órgiva Market, Spain
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: We took a walk up to the lively Órgiva Market this morning. The sunlight and wind caught these colourful dreamcatchers hanging on one of the market stalls.

Day #2277

Day #2277Title: Terraza De Meg
Location: Alcázar, Spain
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 17-40mm EF f/4 L USM
Notes: Ken took us to visit his inspiring artist friend Meg Robinson today. She was brought up in Scotland but after much travelling in pursuit of her art, she has finally settled in the pretty Alpujarran village of Alcázar, in a beautiful little house and studio. Her balcony terrace looks out over the valley – what an amazing view to have each day.

Day #2276

Day #2276Title: Zarpa
Location: Órgiva, Spain
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: I first spotted this pawprint in one of the patio tiles on my first evening at the Villa, but it was in deep shadow and I decided to investigate it again when the sun shone on it. Today, although I was feeling quite poorly, I managed to potter around the garden for half an hour or so during the morning. Ken had given the others the photographic assignment of “breaking the rules” today, so I made a few pictures which fitted the bill too. I also thought it would be great for Treasure Hunt Theme #75 – Less Is More.
