The Patio de los Leones within the Alhambra is where there was a structure with 12 carved marble lions - under restoration when we visited.
Of big interest was the pavilion with its slender columns and if you look closely water channels taking water to the lions to the right of the photo. Unfortunately it was a day with no sky but that couldn't take away from the beauty of the buildings.

Beautiful details can be discovered on this building. The vertical composition was good choice, emphasizes nicely the rich details of the building. Tfs! Have a nice day!

Good evening Ian,
This part of architectural goldsmithery is sumptuous. Its refinement and its details are astonishing, its brittleness connect too. Beautiful image, beautiful document, beautiful colors, except the sky, but one cannot never all have. Cheer.
Have a good evening

Hi Ian, back in Spain? This photo has some great lines and wonderful perspective. And on top of that the texture and details of the arches are superb. Shame about the white sky, but what's a boy to do when you've got Melbourne weather in the Alhambra? :) Hope you had a good weekend, cheers, Lisa

Hi Ian, That is certainly a fancy-looking patio, perhaps the grandest of its type. The strong repitition of the vertical elements make this a stand out photograph. Good colours of the building materials. TFS. Murray.
