Here´s my response to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Near and Far.
I climbed up the nearest hill to where I live in the countryside between the villages of Torrox and Cómpeta, to capture the cactus in the foreground leading the eye towards the whitewashed house and the distant peaks of the Sierras de Tejeda, Almijara y Alhama Mountains.

I love this!!
Maybe you´ll get chance to see it next year 🙂
I hope so!
As always… gorgeous colors and settings… I can’t believe I missed this one too. 🙂
Thank you for your kind words and continued support – much appreciated 🙂
Very cool photo!
Thanks Cole! Have you ever visited this area of Spain?
Just beautiful, Marianne! Thank you for stopping by my blog today 😀
You are most welcome, Dianne 🙂
You are such a great ambassor of your location. Awesome, awesome view! Outstanding submission.
AAwwww you are too kind, Rommel.
Thank you so much for your lovely comments, as always 🙂
Lovely place! 🙂
Yes, indeed it is 🙂
The mountains are breathtaking. The sky is so blue, clear and cloudless.
…and even more beautiful in reality 🙂
A tad prickly – in fact, the spikes on these cactus are vicious if they get into your skin!
Ooooh pretty – but not a patch I’ll be playing in, thank you very much 🙂
What a stunning photo for the theme, Marianne, and you got some exercise into the bargain. 🙂
Quite a good deal all round 🙂
Wonderful…. thanks for sharing. 🙂
You´re welcome 🙂
Your blog is becoming one of my favourites. It is such a treat to escape to the beauty of your little corner of the world, even if just for a moment. I love how you find beauty everywhere you go.
How lovely of you to say that, Sally.
And it´s when you get comments like that, it makes it all worthwhile!
Thank you so much 🙂

Great response to the challenge but, even if it wasn’t, it’s a beautiful shot.
Thanks John, that´s a lovely thing to say 🙂
Excellent composition! Beautiful! Reminds me of Mexico.
Thanks for your lovely comments once again 🙂
What a beautiful view. Lucky you!
You should see the view the other way – down towards the Mediterranean Sea 😉
I can only imagine…
I´ll post it soon enough 🙂
I love all the different textures and contrasts in this photo.
Yes, I know what you mean -thanks Julie.
You truly are lucky 🙂
I know 🙂
I´m so lucky to live where I do 🙂

Lovely! Though l’d afraid that the title / theme just makes me think of Father Ted, Father Dougall, and the cows! “Small and near, large and far away”!!!
When are you back in Spain, Tamara?
I’m here! Got here last night – hurrah!
That’s exactly what I first thought of when I saw the topic for this week 😉
Thanks Sue Ann 🙂
