In Spring of 2013 Dutch photographer Kees Laurijsen stayed at Cantueso Cottages and took some splendid photos of our complex and the surrounding area. We were very pleased to be able to share them on this blog and you can see the original post here.
Now this year Kees and his wife came back for a second visit and as before he couldn’t resist the photo opportunities. There are so many photos to admire and we hope that in the near future we will be able to make a slide show, but for now you can see a sample below. It is particulary interesting to see the difference the seasons make to the landscape; those panoramas that in Spring were so verdant are now glowing with oranges and warm reds. Kees came at the end of September and we had not had rain for three months, so no doubt one of the reasons why the colours of the soil are lacking in green.
Lake Vinuela from Cantueso
The goat herders are a familiar sight around Periana, moving all the time in search of food for their animals
We are often asked why the Lake is so blue in summer, and unfortunately we don’t know. Do you?
There are many evenings like this in autumn and it is always a good excuse for a “sun downer”
Olives thrive in rocky soil and Periana still has over three hundred families cultivating them for the local cooperative.
No visit to Andalucia is complete without seeing the Alhambra Palace
The elegant architecture in Granada is just one legacy from the Moorish occupation over one thousand years ago.
