Photographer's Note

A shot I took of the reflection of the Ladies Tower, at the Partal, La Alhambra, Granada. If I were there now, I would take it from a slightly different angle, to get rid of the borders of the pond. Anyway, I guess I was in kind of a rush, because we were there on a tour.

Some info on the Partal:

"The Garden of the Partal (Jardines del Partal) covers all the area between the exit of the Rauda and the esplanade where the Ladies Tower (Torre de las Damas) stands. The garden that surrounded the royal palaces was in the same place and it was also laid out gradually. The Emperor's Chambers would later occupy that same location.

During the Arab period there were many buildings there. The buildings belonged to the magnates who lived around the Royal Palace (Palacio Real) and the most important one was the Ladies Tower (Torre de las Damas)."
