Photographer's Note

This shot has been taken in the amazing gardens of the Alcazar of the Christian Kings in Cordoba. Outside the main castle walls the gardens occupy 55.000 square metres. There is a wide variety of plants, palm trees, cypresses, orange and lemon, trees to be seen which overlook stone fountains and large ponds. Originally the water was brought in by an aqueduct from the Sierra Morena and the great Albolafia waterwheel in the River Guadalquivir nearby helped with the supply. The large ponds were added in the 19th century. Source: andalucia.com
