    Wales, or the next place I would like to live in (3).

    Today I was browsing my archives and I remembered I had taken lots of pictures from my trip to North Wales. I posted only a few of them here, and at that time I made a mental note to myself, “I need to process the rest and post them soon”. I don’t know where that…

  • Almeria

    Almeria

    This is another repeated trip. Years ago I went to Almeria, just as a way to escape from a very bad time in my life. I thought about spending a few days somewhere not too far, just to see how I would feel afterwards. I thought about going to a deserted area in the south…

  • Shingle Street

    Shingle Street

    I first heard of this place while chatting with an Airbnb host in Aldeburgh, Suffolk, a few years ago. I liked this place so much that every summer since then I try to go a few times, its a couple of hours drive from Cambridge, perfect for a day trip. There is something about the…

    Weekly Photo Challenge: Minimalistic.

    Sorry for the delay between posts. I should try to be more regular from now. Here is my entry for this Weekly Photo Challenge. The first picture is from my last holidays in Portugal. From the top of a cliff. I like the sea texture. The tiny boat gives scale to the thing. The second one…

    Down to earth

    A new gallery of pictures. These are also from my last holidays. I went places that mean a lot to me. Places mostly related to my childhood. Except Almeria, that I had never visited before. Close up views of the soil and floors I was standing on. A more down to earth approach, literally. These are some…

    Weekly Photo Challenge: Horizon

      My three pictures for Weekly Photo Challenge: Horizon. The first one was taken from a car going to some place in Spain. I wasn’t driving. I used a high shutter speed and long focal lens. This might be the best one that came from that experiment. I liked the undulating horizon. The second one…

    fisherman

    A young man fishing in Guardamar del Segura, a typical holiday place in the Mediterranean. But I like it, I have spent some very nice summers there. I have never been too sure about the framing of this picture. Too much sea? Is the fisherman in the right place?  Hmm…

  • Lighthouses

    Lighthouses

    I find lighthouses interesting places to visit, say for historical or geographical reasons. I discovered the one in Cape Trafalgar by chance when walking along Caños de Meca beach, in Cadiz, this summer. I had no idea about what that place was, I just saw a nice lighthouse, took some pictures and later, I read…
