Alhambra Palms, by Simon Cowling

Taken from the street below Granada’s famous Alhambra Palace, looking back up the hill. While not actually a part of the Alhambra, this ancient building with its patina of graceful decay, its layer of terraces and the interruption of the palm trees really appealed to me. The late and hazy afternoon light added to the somewhat medieval quality of the scene.
Photographer Simon Cowling doesn’t mention the extent to which he edited his image, but I assume from the Polaroid style frayed edges and the hand-tinted looking colour palette that it’s received some attention.
I’ve no problem with these decisions and in fact think that they’re quite sympathetic to the subject.
A pretty little study.
