“The King´s little pathway”
Here a portrait of this pathway at the Desfiladero de los Gaitanes, before it was restored to become a place of “pilgrimage” where nowadays people walk in large rows, with previous appointment and payment, perhaps impressive for the person who comes for the first time, in contrast, too much “theme park” for those that visited this place previously.
Made with an analogue camera Praktica Super TL, with a Sigma 17-35 mm lens, a f: 11 at 50 ISO (Velvia)

Image made in good company during a photography workshop of Al Andalus Photo Tour on a beach of Maro Cerro Gordo at the Costa del Sol, Andalusia, with the enjoyment of the moment and the satisfaction of having been able to bring the participants to the right place at the right time. The author has tried to find a balanced composition between rocks and shore and the essential setting sun (only a few weeks a year present in this framing) and through making numerous shots to capture the image with the best confluence with regard to proportions and forms between the elements.
Made with Full Frame camera, lens 24-70 mm F: 2. 8 at 26 mm, 100 ISO and F.16 and 1/3 s, polarizing filter.
