Trip Photos - Andalucia

In case anyone might be interested, here's a link to a few holiday photos of our trip to Spain last week.

I've started writing a trip report (very long winded I'm afraid!) here:

Excellent, excellent, excellent photographs. Some of the best I've seen from this site.

The textures, composition and b&w conversions are very artistic and pleasing to look at. Your exposure is also right on.

What focal length did you use for your wide angle shots? A few looked like a fisheye lens.

Well, now you've done it! I want to visit the Alhambra all over again.
Thanks for sharing these. They are everything that grosenb said, plus a double WOW.

Excellent all the way around. The larger shots are flawless, of course. I have never been to Spain and I learned a lot about the landscape from them. But it was the closeups of the architectural details that packed the biggest punch. And the animal shots were wonderful too-- the donkey was very funny.

Is photography your career, and if so, what is your specialty?

Thank you for your comments everyone. I'd love to be able to take credit personally for the pictures, but it's my husband who's the photographer.

5alive - he's not a professional (although it would be a dream job for him!). He's a keen amatuer though having taken up photography in 2003, and is now a member of a local photographic society.

grosenb - I couldn't answer your question about focal length I'm afraid, so have asked the man himself. Apparently it's "10mm but as it was on a digital sensor the crop factor means it is equivalent to 16mm". Means nothing to me, but hope it does to you!

A big, huge, outstanding WOW!! ><

Way to capture the soul of a bucolic village in Spain! The photographs are absolutely mezmerizing!

Please consider a trip to New England region (USA) during Fall season. Now, that is a feast for the senses!! Thanks for sharing!

P.S. If you ever decide to sell photos, would you please give us a heads-up?

Very nice work Neil. You are a real pro. I love the dog on the roof shot.

Thank you for reviving lovely memories! Spent Easter 2002 and the following week in Granada and surrounds. My daughter and I caught a bus to Capeleira intending to do a short walk, but it started snowing within 5 minutes of alighting, and it was blowing a gale, so it was wonderful to see your pics of the walk in summer!

Thanks Suelynne.

We are thinking about returning to the area in April 2007. If the weather can be anything like you say it was over the Easter you visited, we'll be sure to wrap up warm!
