The distinctive red Bil-bil Castle sits on Benalmadena Costa on the Costa del Sol in Spain. Built in 1927 in an Arabic style it overlooks the Mediterranean Sea and is surrounded by palms and fountains.

Hi Brian. i immediately thought of Morocco when I saw the thumbnail. I presume it's a hotel although I can't see many windows. Lovely composition that leads us along the promenade, past the garden and to the majestic structure and the elegant palms.Best wishes. Klaudio.

A lovely sunny photo with good detail and colours. The lamp posts and the palms give a good vertical structure to the photo. Looks like a good place to sit in the sun and enjoy the view.

Hello Brian - Elements of perspective sweep us into the frame.... I do like the parade of lamps and the way the trees add a counterbalance to them. Spanish colours and a clear blue sky, where is everybody? Enjoying a postprandial siesta?
Have a fine and sunny weekend.
PS. I heard from Ann who says that you should be able to meet up with us for a few hours.... yippee!

Très joli cadrage de ce château rouge de style arabe bien intégré dans cette intéressante composition. Le soleil devait être très fort pour dissuader les gens à se promener sur ces beaux pavages!

If I still had my old lego sets, this is exactly the kind of place I would sit on the middle of the floor and build :) A great inspiration to my inner lego fanatic! I really like the colors the designers have chosen here too, the sky blue looks beautiful combined with the deep red and you have a fantastic sense of depth here. Very nicely done!
Thanks as always

I like this unusual dark red building in the distance and the way you used the road to lead an eye towards it. The lamp posts definitely add more interest to the whole view and the palm trees enhance its quite exotic look. Very nice colors, contrast and well given sharpness.
Thanks for sharing
