Photographer's Note

This is Isla Canela, an island connected by a causeway to the Spanish mainland, on the border with Portugal and about an hour and a half away from Seville. Although it's mainly a resort, it isn't over-developed like a lot of the Spanish coast. Just a pretty marina and some nice bars and restaurants, with protected wetlands surrounding it where you can see flamingoes at some times in the year.

Although it's a resort, it's also five minutes walk from the working fishing village of Punta del Moral, hence the stern trawler in the midle ground.

Ten minutes' drive away is the border town of Ayamonte, which is typically Spanish with narrow streets and palm fringed squares.

The day I took this the weather was quite dull, so I've brightened and sharpened it using Picasa, which I've just discovered as a result of comments from Vicky on my last submission. So thanks again, Vicky!

I hope you like it. Feel free to critique, and also visit!
