Andalusia (Spanish: Andalucía) is the first in population among the 17 Autonomous communities in Spain and the second, after Castile and León, in area. The territory is divided into eight provinces: Almería, Cádiz, Córdoba, Granada, Huelva, Jaén, Málaga and Seville. Its capital is the city of Seville (Spanish: Sevilla).
Andalusia is in the south of the Iberian peninsula, just to the south of the autonomous communities of Extremadura and Castile-La Mancha; west of the autonomous community of Murcia and the Mediterranean Sea; east of Portugal and the Atlantic Ocean; and north of the Mediterranean Sea and the Strait of Gibraltar. The small British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar shares a land border with the Andalusian province of Cádiz at the eastern end of the Strait of Gibraltar.

What a superb composition from your far away and high POV. Love the play of light and shadow on the ground. It has created lovely contrasting light and colours over the frame. Beautiful clear blue sky with nice cloud formations. Nicely done, thanks for sharing.

a really well balanced panoramic shot,the spectacular landscape benefits from the shadow patterns created by the passing clouds.
There is a good recession giving a really nice depth to the shot.

One of the most beautiful picture the last time on TE, as panorama view.
The mountains and clouds care for a spectacular panorama view.
You create depth and perspective through the excellent choice of your angle.
Composition and presentation make these picture attractive.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,

This is a really splendid landscape composition, that benefits much from the superb lighting occasioned by that oh so lovely sky. I like very much the light and shadow play and the natural tones. The image has excellent clarity and amazing depth. I am afraid the weather down here is really no better than much of the UK at the moment, though the rain has not been quite so reverential as in some places.

Amazing vista over the mountains and plains of Andalucia. Certainly one of the most beautiful provinces in Spain. The play of sun and shadows is very pleasing, your framing with the hill in the foreground and the majestic mountain in the back that complete each other beautifully, is spot on.
have a great sunday

A very interesting and informative note and a very fine photograph which looks good here but is quite stunning when viewed at its full size of 1500 pixels wide.
Your composition is excellent as well as pleasing and the light on the plains and mountains is lovely. And what a glorious sky!
Gorgeous light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

amazing view and it makes me wonder where you had to climb to achieve this POV. Good wide angle and very nice DOF. The clarity of the image is very good and allows to enjoy all the details right up to horizon.
The shadows on the mountain add more interest and lovely blue sky gives an extra color to the picture.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your Sunday

La version large nous plonge délicieusement dans la vallée et dans ce paysage de toute beauté. La vue est superbe. Les détails ressortent magnifiquement.
Une bien jolie réalisation.

a captivating landscape. This is a fascinating area in Europe and your picture exalts its natural beauty and wonderful atmosphere. At first, the viewer is drawn by the colours of the bright sky but then realizes what an abundance of formations, details, textures and colours is displayed all over this view. Clarity and depth are stunning and encourage the viewer's long stay in front of the frame. The atmosphere is wonderful too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

This is a spectacular view of the plains and mountains. The clouds in the sky are impressive, too. A very picturesque postcard from Andalusia, TFS.
