Tickets for the Alhambra are divided into different sections. One of the nicest parts are the gardens. However, they are still busy, but with a little patience you can still find some peace. Having said that, the number of people who are happy to wander around and then spend hours taking pictures of themselves and clogging up the view for everyone else is not something I understand. Even less do I get the idea of a stick to put your camera on so you can take pics of yourself. Why? Who wants to look at endless pictures of themselves stood in front of God knows what? Why not take some nice pictures of the thing you have come to see? Why do you have to be in every shot? Will you not believe you were there if you don't have a photo to prove it?
The Gardens have a lot of pools of water and fountains which, apart from the reflections help to keep the place cool in the heat of the summer.
The views over Granada are brilliant. There are the big views of Granada and the buildings and the details too.
I particularly liked the look of the oranges on this orange tree. First close up and then from further away.
This will be a blog about my latest shots and what I liked or was trying to do with them
I am a teacher of Economics and have worked in various schools in Europe & Asia. One of the things I love doing is getting out and about with my camera.
