Having spent my first semester learning the basics about digital photography, I was eagerly awaiting the opportunity when I'd be able to put everything I had learnt into practice.
Visiting Spain turned out to be that opportunity!
Whenever My mum and I went sightseeing in Spain I had my camera at the ready, just in case I saw something interesting. I didn't want to be caught off-guard; and although carrying a DSLR camera with you wherever you go can be exhausting, I don't regret one minute of it. It ended up paying off big time. 😉
Alcazaba ( Arabic for "citadel") was our first stop. It's a fort that was built in the 11th century.
We went all the way to the top - a half-hour trek up a steep hill - where the viewing point is. At some point, I had to take my shoes off so as to walk more easily. But in the end it was well worth it! 😊
The next day we toured the area around where we were staying in Estepona, which led us to "Pepe Beach". Seeing as it was the Christmas season, it was deserted. Apart from a couple and their little boy, we were the only ones there.
The following day we visited Ronda, a beautiful province in Málaga city. By this time, I'd already decided to spend more time experiencing everything rather than trying to capture it all, so I didn't take as many pictures here. But you can see a bit more of Ronda in the video below. 😉
We also spent some time in Marbella, a historically rich city which a few friends from Uni. had recommended that I visit while I was in Spain. I'm so glad that we took their advice!
Finally, on our last day in Spain, we spent some time touring Estepona which allowed me to take a few more pictures.
We drove down to Gibraltar in the afternoon. We had hoped to see more of "The Rock of Gibraltar" itself, and a bit of the city area, but were unable to due to time constraints. I managed to capture a few pictures of it though.
Spain should definitely be on everyone's list of "Places to Visit". 👍 Words can't express how beautiful it is! 😍
So here they are - a few of the thousands of pictures I took in Spain, Lol. I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed capturing them! 😊
P.S. I took a few videos on my trip, and thought I'd put them to good use. So I tried my hand at vlogging. 😄 It's definitely got me thinking of doing more vlogs in the future. 😉 Hope you like it! 😊
(See "Sightseeing in Spain" video at the end of the post).
I find it easier and more effective to write down how I feel rather than to say it.
