A Pictorial Tour, part one!

On our recent trip to Spain, Portugal and France we took an obscene number of photo’s which took forever to edit once we got home.

After natural selection got rid of about 700 of them, we were left with about 1400 images of varying degrees of quality and/or interest.

Here, in no particular order are a few of our favourites.

La Boqueria

La Boqueria market, Barcelona. The best thing about La Ramblas, a wonderful, diverse marketplace.

Chateau Chenonceau

Chateau Chenonceau, Loire Valley. The valley is full of Chateau’s and this is as stunning as they come.

Amboise Chateau

Amboise Chateau.

Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial

Normandy American Cemetery & Memorial. A moving tribute to the brutality of war.

Paris

Paris. Still the best city we have visited, could spend months here and not get bored.

Guggenheim Museum

Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao. Truly the best museum experience ever!

L’Abbeye Fontevraud,

L’Abbey Fontevraud, Loire Valley. Atmospheric, moody, haunting…and the best meal of our trip.

Livrarian Lello & Irmao

Livrarian Lello & Irmao, Porto. How good is this bookshop? More tourist attraction than viable business…they should charge admission, just don’t tell them!

Juno Beach

Juno Beach, Normandy. B&W suits the somber mood.

Mont St. Michel

Mont St. Michel. Majestic, awesome, everything we hoped it would be.

Barca FC Homecoming

Barcelona FC won the triple crown this year and these supporters were ready to bark them home!

Bordeaux

Bordeaux

Monets Garden

Monet’s Garden, Giverny. Famous for it’s waterlilies, but the rest is pretty nice as well.

Retiro Real

Retiro Real, Madrid. Loved this glasshouse, fantastic park.

Pozieres

The Somme. How can something so tranquil be the scene of such devastation?

Amboise Chateau

Amboise. View from the Chateau looking back towards Da Vinci’s villa. Great place Amboise, perfect base for the region.

image

Arc de Triomphe, Paris. Probably not the first person to photograph this monument!?

Montjuic Photo Walk

Montjuic, Barcelona.

d’Etretat

Etretat, Normandy. The Cote d’Alabatre (Alabaster Coast) is spectacular.

San Sebastian

San Sebastian. Mmmm…pintxos.
