This morning I left las Negras at 6am to drive to Granada. I wanted to capture the autumn colours in this beautiful city. After the recent rain there should be plenty of snow on the Sierra Nevada but the weather forecast was warm and sunny.
I needed to leave early so I would be in the queue for tickets to the Alhambra before 9am. Only 800 non pre-booked tickets are sold on the day and the queue gets longer as the morning progresses.
Here are some of the photos I took. It was a perfect day.
When I left the Alhambra I walked down to the city and walked along the Acera del Darro to the Paseo Padre Manjon.
From here I walked up Calle Victoria to the Albaicin.
From the Mirador San Nicolas the views were fantastic.
A quieter spot was the gardens of the nearby Mosque which has equally good views.
Back towards the city centre there is another good view of the sierras and Alhambra from this recreational area.
My last photo is of this little placeta in the Albaicin at the top of the street of Arabic shops and tea rooms. It has been a long day so not much time left to write a lot about it but I hope the photos tell a story.
