I’m slowly sorting through all the photographs of the past few weeks… wow, what a task that is turning out to be! So, on an incredibly windy 18 May I went out for the third time with Martina Braga, this time with her daughter Marie, you may remember Martina wrote a lovely testimonial for me a few weeks ago. Firstly, I took them to Vela Blanca in the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata and then we slowly worked our way back to Cortijo Campillo where they were staying, stopping at various places where there were photographic opportunities along the way.
From Vela Blanca you can see almost forever and certainly as far as the Los Frailes volcanoes. However it was a windy day and not particularly safe to stray too far from the path.
From here we took a slow journey to Cala Arena stopping to look at various beautiful coves and beaches on-the-way.
Scrambling over the rocks at Cala Arena was a hazardous affair as the winds were around 70 / 80 km per hour and fairly constant! At one of the plateau areas of the rocks, someone had built an Indalo Man out of loose pieces of stone.
After our incredibly wind-swept experience, we ventured over to Arrecife de las Sirenas where we were afforded a little shelter, but still because of the wind it wasn’t safe to clamber around the rocks.
Finally we ended our visit at the famous or infamous Iglesia de San Miguel for a photo-stop. Coincidentally over the past week there has been some filming for the forthcoming move El Niño and we stopped to take some photographs at one of the film sets that is also mentioned in a recent blog post, the milk moon.
I’m pleased to say that as is the case with pretty much all visitors, they start out as clients and end up as friends and I very much look forward to meeting Martina again. We have had three very nice field trips and I must say a very big thank you to her, her partner Martin and her daughter Marie for their support and interest in the beautiful places in and around the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata.
