This afternoon, the clouds broke up and we decided to take a walk in El Valle de Rodalquilar and took the track to Cala del Carnaje.
By the side of the track, this rumex bush in flower looked striking against the colours of the rock exposed in a little quarry.
On our left, the sunlit, white buildings of Cortijo Segura stood out against the backdrop of threatening grey clouds.
Crooked, old olive trees beside the path form interesting shapes against the mountains and sky.
Over a ridge the sea and Cala del Carnaje come into view.
Behind the stony beach the only trees growing are these two palms.
At the end of the beach the twin peaks of the extinct volcano above Los Escullos come into view. They always make a dramatic picture looking into the light. The photos today were taken with my little compact camera which seems to have coped well with the tricky light.
