Monday Morning Photo – Dusk in Zahara de la Sierra, Spain

Zahara de la Sierra Spain Cadiz

If you’ve seen 100 images of Spain, chances are that at least one of them was of Zahara de la Sierra. This mountain town in the Sierra de Cadiz is a member of the famed “Pueblos Blancos” and one of the most photographed places in the Iberian nation. Zahara’s popularity is understandable – it’s a white-washed town on a mountain with a castle at its highest point, surrounded by water and peaks.

I had seen many photographs of Zahara before I visited it for the first time last month, so I tried to capture a different perspective. After a late lunch, I snapped a few shots of the sunset, then turned to the streets. I came across a classically Andalusian scene, with the evident beauty of Zahara’s nearby landscapes in the backdrop.
