Day 4 and we have arrived at Almaden de la Plata

Today we arrived in Almaden de la Plata, along the Via la Plata, Spain, about 70k from Seville. The countryside is rolling hills, groves trees. From what I can tell there are olive, oranges and apples grown in the area. The skies have been clear, the temperatures are warm between 20 – 25 C.

The mid day sun makes for harsh high contrast photographs, since the white church walls are easy to over expose I thought I would be more intentional. Creating, in Photoshop, my best “water-colour” type image. Enhancing the black outlines, and saturating the colours of the trees I was able to finish the image as I had imagined it.

While you cannot see them, if you look to the church spire you will the see the nests of tow storks, considered luck for a town to have nesting storks. Perhaps I will see them flying later today!
