Snow on the Sierras

Sierra de los Filabres from our house yesterday

Yesterday morning it rained here in the Parque Natural and the winds were strong and cold. When the skies cleared in the afternoon we saw that snow had fallen on the sierras around us. This photo shows snow on the Sierra de los Filabres. Unfortunately cloud cover hid much of the snow.

This morning it was much brighter. Although the snow had gone from the Sierra de los Filabres we could still see snow on the Sierra de Maria in the east of the Province.

Of course the Sierra Nevada in Granada now has a good covering of snow. These are the highest mountains in mainland Spain and only in high summer are the peaks free of snow.

About Margaret Merry

I grew up in Falmouth, Cornwall, England where, after leaving Falmouth High School, I spent a year at Falmouth School of Art. Then followed three years at Hornsey College of Art in London where I obtained a Diploma in Art and Design. I then spent a post-graduate year at the West of England College of Art in Bristol where I gained an Art Teacher?s Diploma and a Certificate in Education of the University of Bristol. I lived and worked in Truro for over 30 years and became one of Cornwall's most popular artists. My paintings have been exhibited in New York, Tokyo, Paris and London and have been bought by collectors from all over the world. I have published 4 books which became local bestsellers - 'The Natural History of a Westcountry City', 'Margaret Merry's Cornish Garden Sketchbook', 'Sea & Sail' and 'Tidal Reaches'. In 2002 I moved to Spain and now live pn a small farmer the town of Alhabia in the Alpujarra Almeriense in the Province of Almeria. I now get my inspiration from the dramatic scenery of Andalucia and its old cities, towns and villages which I usually capture in watercolour. I also enjoy portraiture and figurative art, particularly nudes and dancers. For these paintings I use artists' soft pastels. I have written and illustrated 3 children's books - The Wise Old Boar, The Lonely Digger and The Adventure of Princess The Pony - which have been published in the USA.
