Hello friends and colleagues, today I present another partial view of the pretty village of Zahara de la Sierra and part of its countryside, this villa is part of the villages in the province of Cádiz that form the "route of the white villages". Hope you like it, then some letters about its history.
Zahara de la Sierra is a village in the province of Cadiz, part of the Sierra de Cádiz. Its history goes back to ancient times, but it will be in the Middle Ages when it becomes important to become a major Muslim enclave, conquered by the Christians in the process of conquest of the Kingdom of Granada. Today is one of the most significant of the Route of the White Villages.

You have found a good high POV for taking this beautiful landscape post. The roofs presented from that place created a very interesting foreground and a nice contrast to the fantastic nature above. Very well seen and composed. TFS.

Ola Angel ,
Les beaux toits de tuiles des villages blancs andalous , avec les collines verdoyantes en arrière plan . Le printemps est sans doute une très bonne saison pour visiter cette région .

Nice view on the valley over the roof tops. The distance gives deepness under a good light and it is interesting to look ate the graphic pattern of the roofs.

Beautiful rooftop view that combined with the high view over the landscape gives me a little vertigo :) Very appealing range of colors throughout the shot. Nicely seen and captured!

Que bonita imagen de Zahara compartes hoy con nosotros, me encanta esta secuencia de tejados tan uniformes, y la gran perspectiva de colinas tan verdes y arboladas, un sitio fabuloso que nos muestras con tu buen hacer.
Una magnífica nitidez, lo mismo que la luminosidad.
Bonito trabajo. Me encanta.
P/D. Me gusta la nueva foto de presentacion en tu pagina, supongo que es tu mujer.... la perspectiva con la playa queda muy bien.
mirosu (15094) 2013-07-30 5:45
An idyllic village houses scene so very well captured in gorgeous colors and beautifully composed. Your POV is simply incredible; I really like this with the nicely looking landscape especially the dominant white-brown has brought so much liveliness to this shot, wonderful detail and contrasting so superbly against the green-blue BG. Indeed a peaceful image, I think we could live longer here! Superb photo. Greetings, Miro
krzychu30 (15510) 2013-07-30 10:47

Well presented panoramic landscape shot here with a great view over the beautiful white village so typical in this region. Sharp and clear image with good depth.

a very pretty shot with the roof tops in the foreground repeating the pattern of the mountains tops in the background:) Nice colors and light, excellent view.
My best wishes

You found an excellent pov and the panorama on the roofs and the hill landscape is amazing
Vivid colors, good sharpness
abmdsudi (44964) 2013-08-01 8:52
A breath taking wide view stretching the eyes towards the extensive depth as though giving the effect of sitting under that great expense of the blue sky, while attention is grabbed by the eye catching roofscape of the traditional white houses on the slopes. A great sense of discovery, depicting the delicate details along the depth within the scene. Splendid effort, a delightful shot. Congrats
ourania (34395) 2013-08-01 14:27
the view is wonderful, so deep and interesting with the clear and attractive details you have captured. I like very much how the character of this picturesque village is perceived from your elevated point of view, through a fascinating play of perspectives, angles and textures. The composition consists of three horizontal parts, the bottom one very vibrant, the second one less so and the sky above very smooth and soothing. You've managed the strong light and the rich contrasting colours superbly. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely month,
Urs (14082) 2013-08-01 22:17
Excellent bird view of Zahara de la Sierra which must have a lovely location in the middle of greenery. Beautiful vibrant colour hues and high sharpness. Well done

Hola, my dear Angel,
Outstanding view.. Just a somewhere in time. Almost no wires, no cars. I think this town had the same view 50 or 100 years ago. Excellent composition, good combination of green and brown. Well seen!
Thanks for your visit and so warm comment!

Une image similaire a la mienne, vue sur les toits du village avec une vue magnifique sur le paysage, très belle lumière et présentation
ikeharel (60339) 2013-08-05 2:00
I learent that this beautiful white-village is located inland near Ronda, and the sight is outstanding beauty.
Your photo divided into three levels: roof-tops in brown, green landscape till far as the eyes can see, and the blue clear sky aloft.
Nicely composed, well taken under bright daylight.
