Monday Morning Photo – Cathedral Courtyard in Tarragona, Spain

The courtyard of the cathedral in Tarragona, Spain.

I captured this image while spending several days in Spain in January. The cathedral of this Catalan city is located on grounds that housed a Roman temple, a Visigothic church and a mosque before the building’s decidedly Catholic turn several hundred years ago.

I really enjoyed the contrast that the scene presented – the life and colors of the orange tree differ sharply from the gray, solemn backdrop of an ancient church. This was my first visit to Tarragona and I’m looking forward to writing about the city and sharing my photos in the coming months. I could have easily spent a week there, regardless of the fact that the winter winds can whip through the streets from the nearby shores.

      Thank you, Sue! That is an orange tree – producing nicely in late January.
