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.
You can see a sneak peek and grab your copy already here!
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!
Photogenic Trujillo, Spain

The Palm Sunday procession passes by as villagers admire.
A simple steeple adorns this church.

Taking in the view of Trujillo from the grounds of the castle.
Orange trees, red roofs, and mountains in the background—gorgeous!
Busy bees adorn the wildflowers.

Look at those clouds!

Does anyone know the name of these purple flowers?
Trying so hard to be sunny!

The most romantic door I’ve ever seen.
