Old Town Malaga

Malaga is one of the oldest cities in the word. It was founded in 770 BC by the Phoenicians and was originally known as Malaka. In addition to its long history, Malaga is also the birthplace of painter and sculptor Pablo Picasso, Hebrew poet and Jewish philosopher Solomon Ibn Gabirol and the actor Antonio Banderas.

Day or night the beauty of this city is hard to resist.

Star Trails over Turtle Lake

Last weekend we were invite to a friends cottage. Aside from enjoying the company of wonderful friends and relaxing in beautiful surroundings I was most excited to try my hand at shooting star trails and the Perseid Meteor Showers that occurred over the weekend.

Here’s one of first attempts at star trails. This was a 15 minute exposure.

Malaga Sunset

I was fortunate to be staying at a hotel that had a rooftop swimming pool. Never did use the pool but it was a perfect spot to capture the sunset over the old town of Malaga.

Beach Day in Malaga

Our next stop on our Spain adventure was the beach town of Malaga, birthplace of Pablo Picasso and Antonio Banderas. Naturally the first stop was the beach.

Alhambra Reflections

On our way to Malaga from Barcelona we stopped in Granada to tour The Alhambra. Make sure that if you’re planning a trip you purchase your tickets online well in advance. We actually saw people turned away because there were no more tickets that day.

The reflecting pools that have been built directly in front of the palaces visually increases their size by the mirror like effect. It creates a beautiful scene to behold.
