Late evening across from the Alhambra

A panorama of the Alhambra in the last light of evening; the pictures used to construct this were taken at the same time as Last views of the Alhambra.

 

These were all taken from the Albaycin, which is the site of the original Moorish town, and the historical location of the old Muslim neighborhood in Granada. There are wonderful "postcard" views of the Alhambra from there, but unfortunately it was overcast and the light was all "blah". WeatherGirl and Sub-Evil Boy eventually got bored and headed back down the hill, but I stuck around hoping for the sun to creep below the clouds as it was setting. Happily I was rewarded with this wonderful view for the last 10-20 minutes of sunlight. Absolutely splendid.
