Mostly photography and some other musings.


Big gallery of pictures from Cabo de Gata, Almeria. I struggled a bit processing this ones. I first thought about doing black and white processing for these, in a similar way to my Low tide pictures. But I like the brown and ochre colours in these landscapes, so here are the colour versions.

The weather was really hot. At some point my car told me something about 37ºC. I spent a couple of days in this place. The plan was just visit some villages and spend some time in beaches. I started in the lighthouse of Cabo de Gata. From there I went to the Monsul Beach. That place is amazing. It is just a desert and the rock formations in the beach remind me, in its shape, like frozen rocky waves. In contrast, the water was totally calm and flat, and completely transparent. I’ve never seen water like that in a beach. There were lots of fishes also, and people trying to catch them. At the end of the day I went up to Las Negras and there I stayed in a hotel. I really liked that little village. The pebbles beach was a bit difficult to walk on, but it is a very unspoilt area, something I really appreciate. I hope it stays that way for long time.

The next day I went to Aguas Amargas. That place didn’t inspired too much to take pictures, so there is none in this gallery. But I had some great seafood. Something I miss living in the UK. That will be the theme of another culture shock post, I think… 😉

As a curiosity, Monsul beach was a location in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade movie:

And here, the map of the route I did:

    Great photos. Thanks. I knew nothing about that stretch of coastline and it looks spectacular. Another ‘culture shock’ post would be terrific!

      Thanks Marcus. Yes it’s an interesting place. I would like to visit it again. Culture shock rants are my favourite theme of conversation these days… 😉
