Photographer's Note

I liked the atmosphere of the Feria de caballo in Jerez, but most of all I was delighted with the view of jacarandas. They are everywhere, the streets and alleys are lined with them, and the most beautiful are on Alameda Vieja, near Alcazar.
Simple composition, but aren't they beautiful and impressive? I chose the time for my Spanish trip very well :). The trees are still in blossom, but there is a carpet of fallen flowers also. I was here with our friend Angel, who also loves jacarandas in his city.

Jacaranda is a genus of 49 species of flowering plants in the family Bignoniaceae, native to tropical and subtropical regions of Central America, South America, Cuba, Hispaniola and the Bahamas. It has been planted widely in Asia, especially in Nepal. It has been introduced to most tropical and subtropical regions.
The name is believed to be of Guarani origin, meaning fragrant.
The leaves are bipinnate in most species, pinnate or simple in a few species. The flowers are produced in conspicuous large panicles, each flower with a five-lobed blue to purple-blue corolla; a few species have white flowers.

In Workshop another shot from the same place but wityh a photographer. I found his round figure amusing and I couldn't decide what to post as the main photo.
