Photographer's Note

On my last day in Spain I came to Malaga from Ronda. I saw Malaga on my first day, so I decided to go to Benalmadena. I saw beautiful Brian's photos of the castle Colomares there, besides in Benalmadena there is interesting Buddhist stupa and Butterfly House. So I went by train to Arroyo de la Miel with hope to catch the bus to all these attractions. It was to far to go there on foot. But to my disappointment, the buses were rare and I was afraid how I would return to Malaga. I was hesitating what to do when I noticed the sign to cable car nearby. So I changed my plans and went by Teleferico to Monte Calamorro summit. This is the highest spot in Benalmadena, close to 800 meters above sea level, provides a complete and exclusive leisure experience, with the very best views of the Costa del Sol, the Sierra Nevada and, on clear days, Gibraltar and the African Coast. The summit has a number of perfectly signed paths, which lead to different viewing points, providing exclusive panoramic views of the Costa del Sol and the opportunity of seeing a wide range of plant species typical of the Mediterranean scrublands. And I was very lucky because I came from this hiking just in time to see exhibition with such emblematic species of birds of prey as falcons, eagles, owls, vultures... at all times flying freely within a natural setting of extraordinary beauty with a backdrop where the protagonists are the Malaga sky and the Mediterranean. I saw similar shows in Qustralia but it was better, Thje audience was small and the birds were very close, I had even one on my head! They made me the photo and gave me the code to load the photo from Internet, but I put it to my trousers, forgot about it and washed :(.
I liked this guy very much, he told fascinating stories, I felt like inside National Geographic program.
