This morning I went to Almadraba de Monteleva, the other side of the Faro de Gata by Las Salinas the salt flats, to display some of Margaret’s prints of local landscapes and flamenco dancers at El Palmito the Flamenco and Cultural Centre.
It was a typical hot and hazy August morning but the long stretch of beach here never seems to get crowded. Perhaps it is at weekends.
I strolled along the beach where little fishing boats are pulled up onto the sand and crossed the road to look at the cottages by the salt works.
Most of these traditional cottages seemed occupied but whether they are permanent or holiday homes I do not know. I guess they were originally for the families of fishermen and salt workers.
Some though are in a ruinous state but at least they make interesting subjects for photography.
Here also is the iconic church, La Iglesia de Las Salinas, which has just been restored. I have recently posted some good photos of this church taken in better light last month but here it is included with the cottages.
I have remastered a couple of photos and posted them on http://coloursofspain.wordpress.com
