Trip to southern Spain

I've been to the south of Spain a few times, but never on a proper cultural holiday. So this is what we did last week on a quick 5 day road trip around Merida, Sevilla, Zahara, Grazalema, Ronda, Setenil de las Bodegas, Granada, Sierra Nevada, Alpujarra granadina, Consuegra and Toledo. It was great to spend sometime with wonderful friends, visit lovely places and eat delicious food. I definitely want to go back again very soon because I feel like there's so much more to explore!

Since we mostly visited towns and cities, I barely took any landscape photos. However, I concentrated on photographing quaint and colorful corners and streets of these places. What do you think?

Entreleones Photocamp Workshop 2017

A few months ago, cinematographer and photographer Manu León contacted me to talk about a wonderful project he had in mind. He wanted to create a photo camp for people who wanted to learn and improve this craft, meet other fellow photographers and specially have lots of fun. After so many months of hard work, he and his incredible team created Entreleones Photocamp , a 4 day crazy and intense adventure in Lepe, Huelva (Spain). 

The first time he called me, he asked if I'd be interested in offering a workshop to talk about my work and show others how I edit in Lightroom. I was surprised and delighted to receive such a wonderful opportunity and I made it possible to try and be there for at least 2.5 out of the 4 days. 

All I can say is that it was one of the best weekends I've had in a long time. I didn't know anybody, but as soon as I got there, it felt like we were all close friends. I laughed so hard, felt so inspired by everyone's work and I came back home with so many new friends!

I'd love to give a shoutout to all the talented artists whose workshops were really special:

I didn't really make many photos, I wanted to enjoy the moment and learn from others. However, I managed to take a few shots during Tania's workshop and on the last morning, when they took us to a wonderful beach full with little fishermen boats and colorful huts.

All I can say is that Entreleones Photocamp has been a wonderful experience and that I can't wait for the second edition! I would also love to get to see everyone who attended once again, so make sure to get in touch to plan a visit!

Fall is finally here

Fall is finally here, and I'm enjoying every single bit of it. There's a process in getting used to the change from summer into colder months, and not everyone is happy about it. I can't seem to get rid of this cold that I have had it for almost a month (it started while in Mexico) and I don't think my wardrobe is prepared for the rain and cold. 

However, things in nature are just as I like them. Mornings are misty, there's fog in the forests, wildflowers are covered in raindrops and trees are starting to prepare for the color explosion. Let's see how it goes this year, since it hasn't rained much, and this usually leads to leaves falling when they are still green. So fingers crossed for a beautiful autumn and exciting photographs to come.

I'm a little behind on my blog posts because I went back to work and these past few weeks I was only able to focus on photography during the weekends. This is a set of pictures from a few weeks ago, when my husband and I went out to explore the valley of Collados del Ason in Cantabria, a lookout of the Ebro river in Burgos, an abandoned monastery in Rioseco and the quaint little town of Orbaneja del Castillo.

I still have many more adventures to post, so keep checking! Hope you like this series in the meantime!
