Looking across to Frigiliana

Across to Frigiliana, Spain

 

Whenever we have visitors staying with us, we always take them for a scenic drive along the back road from Torrox pueblo to the beautiful white village of Frigiliana.

The views across to Frigiliana and Nerja are stunning! 

This photograph was taken from the terrace of Los Caracoles Restaurant and Hotel.  Towards the bottom left you can see the white village (pueblo blanco) of Frigiliana and, over to the right, the nearby town of Nerja, with the Mediterranean Sea in the background.

This view never fails to take my breath away …. no matter how many times I see it!

I’ve never posted any black and white photos before, but I wanted to show support for a new venture set up by my blogger friend, Sonel.   I hope you will, too!

  3. Hi Marianne,
    After reading Cathy’s posts about visiting you I tried to leave a comment on your post “Photographs I love …. and why! [Part 9]” but WP wouldn’t permit me…Huh?

    I look forward to visiting Frigiliana. I can see from your photos that its not to be missed. (I like the B/W photo )

    • Hello dearrosie

      I wonder why? At least I’m glad that this comment has posted OK.

      Anyway, I absolutely recommend a visit to Frigiliana to anyone.

      Thanks for taking the trouble to comment – much appreciated.

  5. Marianne, this looks like a beautiful view, and the white village looks so cozy nestled in the folds of the hills. The black and white works so well with that silhouette of the tree and that lantern. Very nice!! 🙂

    • It’s reassuring to have you say that, Sue. Thank you.

      As I’ve said in a number of previous comments, I have never posted a monochrome photo on this blog before and, as (very much) an amateur photographer, it’s difficult to know which one to choose. Fortunately, this one seems to have gone down quite well 🙂

    • It’s a funny thing – posting in B&W. I found making the choice of photo much more difficult. I think it came out right in the end though 🙂

      Much appreciate your comment, Gemma.

    • I found it hard to choose a shot as I really have no idea what goes well in B&W – but I agree, I think this one is lovely.

      It’s even lovelier for visitors in colour, though 😉

  6. What an absolutely stunning photo Marianne and the black and white doesn’t make it any less beautiful. Thanks for taking part, for your support and for being such a sweet lady. Gorgeous entry for sure and I love it! 😀 *big hugs*

    • I enjoyed posting my first B&W photo, Sonel – and thanks for giving me the push I needed. Glad to give you support – it’s what we do for each other, isn’t it? 🙂

  7. Thanks for posting this Marianne , we were there last week and it was stunning. There was a festival taking place june 13th so vibrant and fun. Unfortunately about to take off from malaga now 😦

    • That’s right – it was Fiesta weekend in Frigiliana last weekend! Did you go on any of the fairground rides, Roy? Sorry to hear you are on your way home – come back again soon, wont you?

  8. Good lass! I’m planning to do the same (when I get round to it!) but I was so looking forward to a colourful ride with you this morning. Maybe another time? 🙂

    • Awwww is your weather bad again, Jo? 😦

      You’ll find lots of colour on my new FB page – including an update on the little veggies I planted recently 🙂

      I’ll try to waft some sunshine your way!

I´d love to hear from you, and much appreciate your comments. Thank you.
