Malaga Sunrise

We took the bus from Comares to Malaga. The bus (a full size one) departed in the dark at 7 am. The route takes you from Comares at 725 metres down and then up on to Mount Santo Pitar, contouring round its side at over 1,000 metres up before winding down the hillside to just about sea level at Malaga. The road is scarcely two cars wide and less in some places and twists and turns like a switchback to make its way down. As the journey progressed the bus gradually filled with women on their way down to work on the coast. Slowly a gleam appeared on the sea below gradually intensifying as we descended until as we entered Malaga dawn appeared. These two shots are taken through the bus window. The top one shows the entrance to Malaga Port and the bottom one the sea front that precedes it.
