photo of the week
Every week I'm on the road I choose a photo of the week. Sometimes it's a fantastic photo, other times it's all about what that shot meant to me. Be sure to let me know what you think.
When you see the sunrise photos from Africa they have this giant glowing orb that looks so spectacular. In practicality the glow is dust. Its just an unclear sun rising, however the sunsets always seem much clearer and way more dramatic. I'd forgotten how amazing sunsets on the west coast of anywhere can be and Africa is no different. This was from a bush camp in Western Sahara after the sun had dipped below the horizon, but as you know, in the west that's the time it gets really great.
I'm willing to bet that 90% of tourists to Spain don't visit Zaragoza. We decided to spend a day there on the way back to Madrid from Pertadella. We loved the small city and the Cathedral-Basilica of Our Lady of the Pillar in particular is stunning. Its Barouque style has a large African overture and the mosaics on the dome are incredible. Really worth the visit.
Brad and I spent 5 days on the Costa Brava coast. We actually stayed inland at a gorgeous little medieval village called Peratallada, however we drove the 15 mins to the beach a few times. It is November so it is very quiet but its still incredible to us that this coastline is 2 hours from Barcelona and people only come in the summer. Huh?? It is truely stunning coast though. Loved having the beaches to ourselves and while it would have been great to have somewhere to eat (everything was closed) it was still warm enough to lie on the beach, reading our books and not getting sunburnt. Loved this part of Spain and while I'd love to come back I"m not sure if I could do the summer crowds now I've seen it so pristine.
Jenny - photography lover but someone who hates lugging around HUGE camera's so my images are all from my Olympus OMD or my little Sony digital.
