Photographer's Note

El Ferrer was an abandoned village for over 50 years when 15 years ago an enterprising English couple bought it and began renovating it.

The village is accessed from Castell de Ferro by a long winding track into the mountains, just an hour and a half drive from Malaga. The peace and tranquillity of this beautiful spot has to be experienced to be appreciated. It's set amidst arid, semi-dessert terrain with a fascinating wildlife.

All except one or two of the original houses have been renovated (preserving the original Spanish style), some of which are occupied by English families who live and work there. One of them runs a small business offering horse riding holidays and their guests stay in holiday homes within the village.

Of course, this is not an advertisement and TE is certainly not a place for that, but I somehow had to introduce you with my today's posting and explain the settings in which the photograph was taken.

By looking at this photo you may guess the setting is by the stables where the horses are kept.
