Hunting for the perfect Toledo Cathedral Photo

Toledo Cathedral, Toledo Spain

Toledo is filled with narrow streets, and it is seemingly impossible to get a great view of the Cathedral. We are either peaking between buildings as we are here,  or looking up at it, as we were in the previous post. So today, I was on a mission to see the Cathedral, and get a memorable image. The image below is from the Alcazar Tower.

We walked out-of-town, crossed the Tagas River on the Alcantara Bridge, a Roman bridge and headed to the Valle Hermitage, high on the hill for a sunset view of Toledo and the Cathedral.

Finally I found the near perfect reflection in the window of the tourist information office. I thought it appropriate the town map was hanging in the window.

  1. I like this post for a couple reasons. You have a number of excellent images here; my two favorites are the second and third, but the others are also excellent. But on a separate dimension your story also shows the effort that you and other other photographers may invest in finding “the perfect shot.” Often the casual viewer, looking at an image, does not realize that.

    1. Hi Robin, nice to hear from you. my two favourites, for photography reasons are the second and third as well, but the others help to tell the story. some of my friends who follow the blog are not photographers, and while they appreciate the photography, the story of where we are and what we are doing is as much the reason for reading it as any! Glad you like the 2nd and 3rd, it took a 40 minute walk up the hill!

      1. And a 40 minute walk back, I imagine. Having made a few of those, it’s good to see someone writing about it. I should add that I also liked the last one a lot, not only because it is well-conceived and executed, but also because it is so different from the others.

  2. For me it’s both the photographs and the storyline. This, along with Salamanca is on my ‘bucket list’ of places to visit.
