Pictures from a Photogenic Day

As we left Madrid for Extremadura the forecast was predicting a weekend of rain and thunderstorms but, luckily, the sun was determined to shine. Over the next few days white puffy clouds filled the sky, threatening a storm that never came. It was what I like to call photogenic weather. So before I get into the details of our trip through Extremadura I would like to share some shots taken in Trujillo, Spain using some of the techniques I’ve been practicing since reading Getting Out of Auto.

If you are at all interested in photography I greatly recommend this helpful e-book, which has given me the confidence to shoot in manual and get some great pictures. I’m still learning, however, so if you know of any other tutorials or e-books please leave them in the comments!

Does anyone know the name of these purple flowers?

The most romantic door I’ve ever seen.

    1. Hey Cat, I’ve been here all Semana Santa with the novio — he’s from here. I’m heading down to Sevilla tomorrow for a few days, maybe we can meet up. Also, I’ll be back in Trujillo from June 6 or 7… their “feria” is in June, but definitely nothing like the feria in Seville. Also, you might be interested in coming the first weekend in May when they have their Feria Internacional de Queso y Vino. Best fiestas ever!
