I like the purple color repeating itself on the ground. Nice peaceful scene with a good background and even some birds in the sky. Good light management.

sono proprio belli questi alberi in fiore che coprono le antiche mura.
Magnifico anche il contrasto dei colori, un vero piacere per l'osservatore.

You are lucky man to leave in beautiful Andalusia. I live this part of the world, especially the spring time (not so much summer). You have captured the spring time atmosphere in excellent way. Beautiful arrangement with blossoming trees in front of Alcazar walls.
Very well done.
Subhogen (4065) 2014-03-05 19:25
Love the beautiful trees with lavender coloured flowers. The blue sky has contrasted the blooming trees very well. Nice view of the castle wall rising above the trees. Good clear and bright image with vibrant colours and excellent clarity. Very well done and thanks for sharing.

J'ai eu le plaisir de visiter l'Andalousie à cette période de l'année ou les arbres nous offrent ces très belles couleurs. Ici, la rangée forme une diagonale impeccable dans un ciel parfait.

These purple trees are amazingly beautiful under the crispy blue sky. The castle-like building behind the trees is in a such gorgeous setting. It's a very enjoyable picture.
dkmurphys (50184) 2014-03-06 6:34
Superb colors of the trees. I like this composition very much. Well seen.
ikeharel (58863) 2014-03-06 9:15
last year's jakaranda trees, on a very beautiful spring blossom, Angel.
Yet, it will be spring again.
Fine shot along the old walls, and your note shaed light on the history of your town.
Kamilutka (8095) 2014-03-06 9:43
the trees in full blossom standing in the neat row add very much charm and lightness to this image. The lilac flowers are very eye catching and make the thick, solid walls look more subtle. Very nicely composed with great light and perfect sharpness.
Thanks for sharing
PaulVDV (23015) 2014-03-06 10:27
I love the luminosity and the brilliant purple blossoms in the trees.
Best regards, Paul

Ciao Angel, gran bella sfilata di alberi fioriti, splendida luce, ottima nitidezza e fantastici colori, bravo, ciao Silvio
Royaldevon (30745) 2014-03-06 12:12
I thought Spain was already showing its jacarandas in bloom but I see your photograph was taken last year. That does not stop them being beautiful! They are exhibiting colours rarely seen on tree blossom.
You have angled your shot well, creating a natural lead across the frame and using the textured wall as a good backstop.
My warm regards,
boa (6081) 2014-03-06 13:55
a nice shot from an wonderful part of the year! I have never seen Jacarandas flowering, probably because i have never been to Spain in the end of spring:) Beautiful colors, sharp and clear shot. A good contribution to TE, tfs!
Have a nice evening my friend/

Hola Angel, la primavera ha llegado aqui y estoy segura que pronto llegará en España..éste año se ha caído mucha água...que bonita es tu imagen...me gusta el color y la luz muy especial!!buen trabajo!!
jcpix (13704) 2014-03-06 18:14
You must be anxious for Spring and Summer to arrive?? :) I remember these lovely and colorful trees, they sure do make an impression. This is a delightful line up set under the clear blue sky, making it all the more bright and cheerful. Looks like the street sweepers will keep busy though...somebody has to maintain the beauty, right? jaja Sharply focused and detailed, good idea to capture the couple of birds in the sky...a nice added touch. Enjoy the day ahead. All the best.

Jacarandas en flor, misma imagen que se ve en Buenos Aires a fines de primavera
Me gusta tu composicion con las paredes del Alcazar como fondo
Lindo paseo con esas farolas antiguas, todo en gran diagonal para obtener una buena perspectiva
Un saludo desde Argentina y buena semana

a very delightful scenery, I love the elegance of jacarandas, the colour of their blossoms is mesmerizing, it plays with the light is a fascinating way and affects the lighting and atmosphere of the area so strongly. In your picture you've captured these brilliant effects superbly, with great light and colour management. The whole setting looks intriguing and timeless. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
