I KNOW YOU’VE HEARD IT ALL BEFORE BUT IT’S FOR YOUR OWN DAMN GOOD! GIVE’EM A CLICK, THEY’RE BETTER BIGGER.
If given a choice, 9 times out of 10 I’d choose to photograph water…1 in 10, (if it ever happened, and I live in hope), I’d use my zoom on Milla Jovovich in a pair of tiny pants, but for all intents and purposes, water is my tip-top subject of choice..
The Altiplano, North of Granada, is pretty much my photo-utopia…more reservoirs, (in Spanish that’s ‘Embalse’), than you can shake a shitty stick at, and every one is unbelievably beautiful.
This is the Embalse de Negratin which lies immediately North of Zujar.
I visited in the Summer, when the pontoon was bedecked with half a dozen fat, hairy-backed Spaniards in speedos, and, needless to say, it didn’t rate particularly highly as a photo-opportunity…Today, deserted and under heavy cloud I thought it looked positively splendid.
This one is the Embalse de Portillo, which lies just North West of The hill town of Castril.
Didn’t I tell you they were beautiful?
I tell ya! I’m a Reservoir Dog!
