Dazzling light and vibrant colors – San Pedro 4th January

San Pedro today

San Pedro today

Today has been another day of dazzling light and vibrant colors. We walked to San Pedro. We know we have featured this cove many times on this blog but we think the pictures today are a little different.

We followed the path from the Rambla de las Agüillas to the cliff path.

It was interesting to see this field had been recently ploughed where the two paths meet. Certainly no crops will be planted here, but perhaps it is just a statement from the owner to indicate that he owns the land.

As usual the scenery from the path looking along the coast was stunning.

When we descended the flowers of cacti made a colorful foreground to the views of the beach.

On the beach a small boat was unloading supplies from Las Negras.

In the fertile valley behind this young woman was hard at work on the land.

Despite the dry weather the valley behind the beach looked very lush.

On a day like today these “hippy houses” looked quite appealing.

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 in the little coastal village of Las Negras in the heart of the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata. 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 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.
