The rambla in the centre of Almeria

The rambla in the centre of Almeria

The fine weather has continued into October but I was without my camera at the beginning of the week as the sensor was being cleaned in Almeria. I collected it on Wednesday and took a few photos of the rambla in the city centre to check all was well. Even the city cenre seems quiet now.

I sensed a change in the weather yesterday evening as cloud started to build up. This photo was taken at about 1900 from Los Escullos.

Indeed it did rain during the night and this morning. We went for a walk along the beach at Los Escullos.

The sun returned illuminating the sea against the black sky creating some dramatic images. Here are the fossilised sand dunes at the end of the beach.

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.
