This is the view of Malaga from the hill above the city, Gibralfaro. In my first day in Spain, I came to Malaga by plane from Bratislava. In the easrly evening I went to Alcazaba. The Moors left posterity the dominating presence of the Castle of Gibralfaro, which is connected to the Alcazaba, the lower fortress and royal residence. Both were built during the Taifa period (11th century) and extended during the Nasrid period (13th and 14th centuries). The Alcazaba stands on a hill within the city. Originally, it defended the city from the incursions of pirates. Later, in the 11th century, it was completely rebuilt by the Hammudid dynasty. Occupying the eastern hillside that rises from the sea and overlooks the city, the Alcazaba was surrounded by palms and pine trees.
There was a bit of case but still you can see on the left the catherdal of the Incarnation. it is very interesting building, if you look carefully you can see many small flat domes as the roof. The building in the center is Ayuntamiento - the City Hall. But what I want to show here is this white stripe on diagonal close to the harbour - this is the pergola known from many photos.

you have found a perfect spot for a great view over the city and the harbour. The (early morning?)light is very attractive.
A little minor is the crooked horizon.
Warm regards, Gerrit

A wonderful perspective over city of port; much to see and all in excellent detail.I like very much the light and colours and the contrast offered by the background mountains shrouded in haze.
My wife does like shopping like most women:-) Apart from the supermarket, I try to avoid going to the shops!

On dirait que c'est la ville ŕ la campagne. Beaucoup de verdure en bord de mer ŕ Malaga ainsi qu'une belle brume sur les montagnes en arričre plan. La recette idéale.

It is an extra-ordinary view from above the hill city, Gibralfaro, very good choice about the position where you took it. Well composition, amazing blue color and sharpness. Your article is very much interesting as well as informative. Very well executed.
best of all and thanks for sharing this beautiful landscape.

Urzekajaca panorama Malagi. Wybralas dobra pore i uzyskalas ciekawe oświetlenie. Punkt widokowy tez znakomity, często staram się znaleźć taki, ale nie wszedzie miasta otoczone sa pagorkami. Tutaj wysokość optymalna ani za wysoko ani za nisko. Możemy podziwiac cale miasto schodzące do morza… i te gory oddzielone mgielka w tle. Ten maly ptak nad gorami zupełnie mnie powalil. Super praca

What a wide and expansive and inviting view this is! Crystal clear in every aspect, from the buildings in the near foreground to the misty mountains in the distance. This goes to show that man made landscapes can indeed look very beautiful without losing their natural aspects. Even the heavy industry of the port looks fantastic here.
Thanks as always

Zachwycajacy widok miasta z lotu ptaka. Piekne slonce, ale najbardziej podoba mi sie ta mgielka na horyzoncie, ktora wyglada jakby wyrastaly z niej gory.

Very nice view of that town that maybe I'll see in a few days. The POV is great and I like also that mix of sun and mist.
Regards, TFS, José.

Hola Malgo, estupenda vista de este panorama de la ciudad de Málaga con el puerto comercial, muy bien captada con un estupendo pov, en esta buena y bonita foto. Una interesante imagen de esta bonita capital andaluza, con buena nitidez, profundidad y calidad. Un bonito y buen trabajo perfectamente realizado, mis felicitaciones amiga mia. Gracias por compartir este interesante trabajo.
Buena noche y feliz fin de semana.
Un cordial abrazo.
Angel y Tońi.
Pd. Málaga es nombre de provincia y capital, Córdoba es otra provincia y otra capital.

un panorama fantastico, anche se la foto pende a sinistra, non č da te, credo che sia la prima volta che vedo una pendenza nelle tue foto.
A parte questo, la foto č veramente bella, si riesce ad apprezzare tutta la cittŕ, porto e antiche architetture comprese. Nonostante la luce non sia favorevole, c'č una bella profonditŕ, grazie anche all'ottimo pov.

You found a wonderful vantage point for a view over this city. Lovely sunlight and I like the misty hills in the background too. Thanks a lot for sharing!

Very interesting and attractive place!
Very beautiful picture too!
Management of difficult light, colors, level of sharpness, horizontal format, chosen pov and composition really pleased me!
It's an inviting picture too! I want to visit Malaga!

Tysiące szczegółów przy takim widoku z góry, taka (chyba) poranna mgiełka też ma swój urok, i światło jest doskonałe, pięknie zrobione

Trčs belle vue générale présentant de façon remarquable la ville de Malaga sous toutes ses facettes.

Good evening malgo,
Afternoon fog enveloped Malaga from the south, obsecuring the Costa-del-Sol beachs and mountains, but inspite that you posted a wonderful town and port scenery.
Since our visit in 6/1998 I can tell the town had gone a renovating fase towards being modern and attractive as the capital of the (already mentioned) Costa-del-Sol.
This port however is not a bussy one, and remember it was almost empty back than as well.
Have a nice weekend,

a well framed view over Malaga, lovely garden in the foreground and a little mist far away: a beautiful place! I remember as a very hot place in the summer, the last time I went there.
So I went to a country you didn't visit yet? Bazil is huge! Go there and enjoy it, don't miss Brasilia!

A superb high vantage point with good sharpness and the u shape of the bay nicely guides the eye around the image. Good color and saturation. I see an Australian gum tree or eucalypt top right! And some fg prickly pear native to central America. The repetition of the palms along the avenue adds interest. Tfs!
