The Gates of Paradise (Series) – Alhambra, Granada, Spain
The first picture in this post is one of my favourites from my visit to the Alhambra. The way the light hits the building arches, it creates such a dramatic and atmospheric scene. The foreground is much darker, but with each arch, the scene becomes lighter and lighter – almost as if it’s dropping a shade of light step by step. I also love the symmetry of this picture – if you look closely, each arch fits perfectly into the other – with the 3 arches on the far side of the building fitting perfectly into the last single arch in the frame. I could tell you that I meant for all of this to happen…but I’d be lying! I tried to make it centred and symmetrical but had no idea it would come out this cool!
