Hola from Andalucia

I thought an introduction was overdue as I've been scanning the wealth of information on this forum for a while now. Originally from Newcastle (aye a geordie ) I upped sticks and moved to southern Spain back in 2004, we bought a neglected old cave house in the hills to renovate and later started an online Spanish food business. Interest in photography initially came from creating images suitable for the web, mainly food and product shots and it didn't take long before I got bitten by the photography bug! 40th birthday got me a K30 and I'm now hunting for a K3ll with a new lens or two for Spanish fiestas later this year, landscape as well as other areas Andalucia can throw at me.

Anyway.. thanks for the opportunity to post and look forward to contributing.

Adios for now.

Cured hams, local produce - away from the mass produced stuff. Granada is fantastic - agreed.

Welcome to the Forums. Sounds like you have carved out an interesting life for yourself. If you ever did an archaeological excavation under that cave house you would probably find layers of occupation going back 60,000 years!
