Some photos from last week


Rumen flowering on the cliffs

The warm sunny weather continues here in the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata. Here are some photos taken during the last week. Of the flowers along the cliffs in bloom at the moment, those of rumen induratus are the most colorful. This shrub likes warm, coastal areas and here it flowers in various shades of pink. The photo above shows some flowering on the cliffs between Las Negras and Cala del Cuervo.


Boats on the beach, Las Negras

The boats on the beach at Las Negras are particularly attractive in the early morning light and the compositions uncluttered at this quiet time of year.


More boats on the beach

These two photos were taken on Sunday morning. There are always a few men messing about in the boats or fishing from the shore to add himan interest.


Palm trees in El Valle

We posted some photos of El Valle in the last blog but here is yet another one. This time of the palm trees looking towards El Playazo beach and the coastline beyond taken yesterday morning.


Hangliders in the sky

As we returned to Las Negras after a long morning’s walk we came across these hangliders.


Soaring above Las Negras

Conditions for this sport here must be good as they are often seen soaring above Las Negras during autumn and winter.

If you click on the photos they will enlarge.





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.
