Photographer's Note

This palace/fortress complex that sits on a hilltop above Granada deserves its reputation as one of the most overwhelmingly beautiful places in all of Europe. The gallery in this photo encircles the Patio of the Lions, and the reflected light from the mid-day Andalusian sun catches some of the detail. In the corner is a bird in flight, one of hundreds whose song echoes throughout the palaces. You can wander for days in Alhambra, filled as it is with perfectly proportioned wonders - palaces, throne rooms, gardens. It's astounding!
