Torre del Oro

For those who have been following my blog, you’ll know that we went to Andalucia in Spain last week for a short break. You won’t be surprised to hear therefore, that I’m planning a series of posts over the next couple of weeks to document this trip.

To get the ball rolling here is a shot of the Torre del Oro, one of Seville’s most recognisable landmarks. Built in the 13th Century by the Almohad dynasty of Muslim rulers, this watchtower by the river once had a dome covered in golden tiles, hence its name…..”Tower of Gold”.

It’s a simple shot, but I like the composition and the presence of the palm trees adds an extra dimension….not bad considering it was grabbed from the back of a taxi…..;0).
