Granada sits at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains giving its beautiful buildings a fairly stunning backdrop. It was the last Moorish capital in the Iberian peninsula and Islamic architecture features prominently, affording the city a unique atmosphere.
The dominant feature of the city is The Alhambra and given my shortage of time is the main subject my pictures.
It was built for the last Moorish Emirs in Spain in 1335.
The Alhambra is literally translated as Red Fortress, reflecting the red clay building materials.
It has been named by UNESCO as a world heritage site.
As I said earlier my time was brief and I didn't get the opportunity to visit the structure itself, rather I made the long climb up winding cobblestone streets opposite, making it just in time to catch the soft light of sundown.
Last weekend I had a chance to see Jess and though the visit was brief, as always she was a tonic for the soul.
