Lying at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, the city of Granada in the Andalusian region of Spain is a favourite destination of mine. I love the contrast of the old and new parts of the city and I love that it is easy to move around on foot or by using the hop-on buses. History is everywhere, from the grandeur of the Alhambra to the Cathedral through to the twisting narrow alleyways and roads of the Albaicin. There are even people who live in cave houses in the Sacromonte district in the Valparaiso hills overlooking the city where you can witness flamenco being performed.

Then there are the views. During either the day or night, the vistas from various viewing points above the Albaicin across to the Alhambra or from the Alhambra down on to the city are magnificent and well worth the effort.

Then there is the food. Besides the typical Spanish tapas on offer, the blend of Arabic and Moorish culture makes for some interesting finds in the older parts of the city. In contrast to the modern shops of the city centre you can wander into the Kasbah district in only a few minutes where you will find glowing lamps, brightly coloured clothing, a multitude of teas and spices and some wonderful characters who will barter with you for your custom. All in all, Granada is one of those places that I plan to revisit in the future.

I have also made the book available as a Large Square (12"x12") and as a downloadable iPad/iPhone version here: http://www.blurb.com/my/book/detail/2707461

About the Author

I've always been a slightly mad geeky scientist and that's how I earn my keep but I also share that love with my photography. For me, it's such a special thing to capture a moment in time: an expression, a composition of something that stops you in your track, a one-off event and then to be able to relive that precise moment again and again. I can vouch for the fact that memories seem to fade pretty quickly as time passes!

I haven't gone down the route of specialising in one particular area of photography. I just capture anything that moves me to press the shutter, whether it's nature, macro, landscape, travel, portrait, or street photography.
