Yesterday we went for a walk along El Valley de Rodalquilar following a track the other side of the main road. Looking back there are good views of Rodalquilar, the old gold mine workings and the mountains behind.
This track passes through a grove of ancient olive trees.
Their gnarled shapes provided some dramatic images with the low, winter sun casting its long shadows in the afternoon.
It was a beautiful, sunny day and we have the same today unlike much of Spain which is suffering from severe weather. Colder weather is due to reach us in the week though.
Also along the walk we passed this old noria, waterwheel. It is similar to the one behind El Playazo ,which has been restored, but this one is in ruins.
