A wander around The Alhambra

Photos of the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Andalucia, Southern Spain

This blog post is a little different to the others on here - being that it's not a walk as such and it's all about architectural beauty rather than the beauty of the natural world. Nonetheless, I wanted to post the pics I took on here, as it was a truly stunning place, a wonder of the world.

The alhambra palace
The level of detail throughout The Alhambra is truly amazing,
it's got to be one of the most astounding pieces of architecture on the planet!



Lake District Weather and walking in the Lake District

The Lake District Weather & potential for all four seasons in a day

I have lived in Northern England all my life, and also travelled to quite a few places around the world, and I always say - when the weather is good in the Lake District - there is no where better.

However, the lakes is very changeable, and there would be no lakes if it didn't rain! Being a keen walker - I must say I don't particularly enjoy walking in the rain, however being a photographer I do love the ever changing sights & scenes that the four seasons bring to the lake district. You could look at the same view everyday and it can be quite different through the year, even from one day to the next - such is the weather of the lake district.
