From a trip to Andalusia with my father in March 2011. Although we were only there for about four days I still managed to take some 1400 photos. So as you may be able to imagine it was quite a job to edit it down to the selection of fewer than thirty displayed here.

This selection mainly focuses on the Alhambra palace in Granada, as well as the Mezquita-Cathedral in Cordoba. The final photo in the set is not from Spain at all though, but was taken on the flight back. It shows the Oosterscheldekering (part of the Dutch coastal flood defences) from the air, more clearly than just about anything I’ve previously been able to shoot from a plane.

Also special, for me at least, is Photo 25. Taken in the archaeological museum of Cordoba this photo shows a Roman funeral urn made of glass. It marks the first time I’ve seen an intact Roman glass object more than five or ten centimetres in size, standing probably some thirty or forty centimetres high.
