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!
Here are some more from the trip to town:
The afternoon was spent quietly pottering around the villa and its neighbouring Casita garden – the pretty Casita Florita.
There are lots of photo opportunities in the garden:
This evening we all enjoyed dinner out at a local restaurant, a lovely way to round off the day.
We had “homework” before even getting up today! Ken set us the task of finding 10 images in our room before breakfast. With some glancing light coming through the windows, I was able to rise to the challenge:
We spent the morning in Órgiva town, with another assignment – this time based around finding colour. It’s something I’m drawn to regularly anyway, so it was a bit like shooting fish in a barrel. Here are my best 10:
The rest of my set from Órgiva:
We had a great walk up the track in Tijola this evening – to a viewpoint overlooking the Rio Guadalfeo valley. It was sunny but very windy up there, but we arrived just in time for the glancing sunshine.
The rest of my images from the evening are here:
Title: Orgiva Colour

Notes: Amazing in-your-face colour found in a shop front during our walk in Órgiva this morning.
Our workshop began this morning with Ken giving us some exercises in mindfulness and relaxation. We were encouraged to see the potential of everything for image making, without pre-judgement. Our challenge for the morning was to make 10 pictures from inside the house and around the lovely gardens:
My search also turned up some excellent mono Rusty Textures. The full set of garden shots can be seen here:
After a restful afternoon we took a walk to the Seven-Eye Bridge in the warm early evening light. An excellent way to work up an appetite for dinner! Here are the images I made on the walk:
