Another "stolen" photo from la Feria de Caballo (Horse Fair)in Jerez de la Frontera. As you can see, the area is nicely decorated and the beautiful Andalusian women with long colourful dresses and flowers in hair and handsome guys in hats and high boots are roaming around. And of course there are horses and carriages. I felt a bit like taken into the movies. It was late evening, as you can see from long shadows. But one evening was enough. The next day I went around Jerez with Angel and Toni (thanks!!) and we didn't visit feria again.
As to my joke from Devin castle. The size of the angler was a clue, he had to stand near the bikers, far behind the tower.

Spanish Feria are always wonderful and so beautifully traditional and always celebrated with gusto, joy and happiness. It is a real experience too - lots of colour and character, as this shot demonstrates perfectly.
Enjoy the week ahead - B.

This is another beautiful photograph from the Feria de Caballo and one in which these ladies look much more elegant (even if not quite so sexy!).
Your composition is superb - the elegant lady on the left apparently photographing her friend against the carriage and our line of sight follows hers perfectly. The distant view is full of people and interest and the low angled oblique lighting brings out all the colours and textures beautifully.
A fabulous photograph with great vibrant colours, lots of interest, perfect exposure and exquisite sharpness.

Pleasant to look at, we see clear the folklore with the ladies in wonderful clothings.
Also the decorative background is real extraordinarily nice.
Lovely perspective and depth picture, also nice panoramic view about these area.
Composition and presentation are pleasant.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice new week,

J'ai été témoin de quelque chose de semblable lors de mon voyage en Andalousie. Une très belle tradition familiale bien mise en image ici. L'ensemble est coloré et festif.

Stealing others' photos is very popular. I do it often, but I rarely come to places as exotic and colourful as this. This may be "daily life", but it's not quite the ordinary daily life. I enjoy the inclusion of the man holding his little child. Maybe he wishes he had his hands free so he could take a similar photo like you.

Really wonderful shots and so many wonderful images in your gallery. I really enjoyed them all, but don't have time to comments on all of them.
and this one with the large version wow, so much details to appreciate, and yes, it feels like beaing back in time or watching a movie with the people in the costume and horse carriage.

questa fiera è un vero tesoro per appassionati di cavalli e fotografi, i soggetti sono molto belli e colorati, fantastico.
Avevo visto altre foto, molte di Angel, tutte molto belle. Questa tua foto è molto simpatica, la scena è piacevole, gli stessi partecipanti si fotografano gli abiti proprio come in un'occasione unica.
PS quando trovi un biglietto aereo per Pisa, ti porto io stesso a Lucca :)

Beautiful la Feria de Caballo scene with traditional Andalusian clothing, ornate carriage, and the unique metal artworks hanging in the sky, with palm trees for Mediterranean environment.

Joli décor, de belles tenues des dames, j'aime la calèche, les teintes chaudes et l'ambiance agréable qui en ressort de cette image

Good evening Malgo,
The puzzle with the angler was solved, no joke - but a nice eyes illussion.
This picture is a wonderful festive ambiance conveyed, well taken the scene, charming lady in white posing near the carriage with the carter.
A fine photo collected.

A very vivid and gorgeous scene that conveys all the joy and color of the Feria, very nice effect of palm trees and bright ornaments standing out in the sky.
Beautiful colorful, high brightness and perfect sharpness.
Very well done. I love it.
Have a good afternoon.
All the best.
