Almond

Posted by
grouser (Ludlow, United Kingdom) on 4 February 2009 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

One of the delights of getting away from the UK to Spain at this time of year is that. in Andalusia at least, Spring is already making its presence felt with wild flowers and almond blossom. A feast for northern European colour starved eyes.

This landscape and the way you framed it are toffees (almond stuffed) for my eyes - thanks for that softness*

Thanks Grouse cheered me up a treat, as you keep showing us there's more to Spain than the Costas.

A marvelous landscape. It's been warm here also and the flowering pear trees blossomed overnight, just about everywhere . Wish I could find one in as pretty a setting as this.

This is a beautiful landscape with the blossoms and other spring-like thing to see and enjoy. It's refreshing to visit such an advanced (seasonally) place to soak up the colors and interesting things to see and shoot.
