After three magical days in Sevilla, John and I hopped on a bus and headed southeast to the little town of Ronda. Ronda is considered one of the white Andalusian towns in the provence of Málaga, but what makes it particularly stunning is a bridge that connects to the new town with the old town and towers 120 meters above the canyon floor. Here are a few of my favorites from our time there:
The view of the city and bridge at night.
One afternoon John and I decided to hike down to the bottom of the canyon, and to our delight, we stumbled into a olive grove.
Our next stop after Ronda? Granada! After only a 2.5 hour train ride we arrived in this southern city, home of the prestigious University of Granada and La Alhambra, the Moorish citadel and palace.
We loved all the colorful wares being sold street side.
And what do you know? We actually happened upon a wedding ceremony. We waited around, cameras in position, in hopes of getting a glimpse of the bride.
It was worth the wait!
My favorite shot of La Alhambra. I love the Sierra Nevada mountains in the background and the pinkish glow of the stone.
The next day we had our tour scheduled of La Alhambra. Before we entered the palace, we explored a bit of the fort. I love that all the red bud trees were in full bloom.
A great view of the city.
Inside the palace…
I was so impressed by all of the tile and stone work. There were entire walls covered in Arabic writing.
Check out this ceiling!
After the palace tour, we wandered over to the adjoining gardens. Here is a view looking back on the city.
Last stop? Madrid, Spain’s capital city. On our first day we toured the Prado and the Botanical Gardens. Here are some of our favorite shots:
After a full day of touring gardens and museums, we sat down to one of our favorite Spanish pasttimes: people watching while drinking un café con leche.
Street of the Love of God.
Well, I hope you enjoyed scrolling through our photos and that you were able to experience a little taste of Spain through our work.Make sure to check back next week! We met up with one of the sweetest families we know for a morning photo shoot on the beach! Nothing says summer like shooting in the sand and surf.
Un abrazo fuerte,
