This time we made a trip to Granada, the beautiful old town in Andalus, Spain. As during summer time temperatures are quite high — around 40 °C, we choose March to start, as there temperature is still moderate — around 18 °C.
All images were made with my workhorse Olympus OM‑D E‑M1 and the wonderful M.Zuiko 2.8/7–14mm Pro lens, which gave that special width to all images.
Besides a beautiful old city with so many corners to discover, the world famous Alhambra is the main attraction which — besides its inner beauties — also gives tons of amazing views into the surrounding landscape.
This city is always worth a stay, but now let’s see some pictures …

So long … and thanks for all the fish.
These were the last images I posted in my Australian Adventure series, started long ago. They show two old classic Volkswagen in Fitzroy/Melbourne. It was our last day in Melbourne and Australia and so gives a good link to our next day flight back to Germany.
The complete series can be found here on my flickr page. The whole Australian Adventure story started in November 2015, when I headed to a three weeks trip to the South East of Western Australia, the Tasmanian Island and … finally Melbourne. There were so many wonderful impressions, that I would not hesitate to come back again … some day. It took me nearly 18 months to complete the review and postprocessing of nearly 1000 images taken mostly with the workhorse Olympus OM‑D E‑M1 and its wonderful lens M.Zuiko 12–40mm PRO, supplemented by my iPhone 5s. 286 images found finally their way on my flickr page, some of them in colour, some in black&white and some in both moods.
As written in the title, I’m done with the Australian Adventure and I’m already heading towards the next series — Northern Spain with the Basque Country, Cantabria, Asturias and Castile-Leon — where we travelled in spring 2016.

Having now nearly reached the middle of the photo review about my Australian Adventure, I noticed that I have posted a lot of cool views of Western Australia.
However what is missing — at least IMHO — is a bit more about those small towns we passed by on our trip. I just mentioned them in my comments, but how do they look like?
This is, why I´m planning to pause the major photo series — before heading over to the second part — and insert a short small-town-series first.
Check out on Flickr soon.
Besides the really amazing photo series about my Australian Adventure, I’ve learned many (sometimes rather strange) things about this huge and far-away country.
First, in ancient times Australia has been the major British prison camp.
Second, between 1901 and 1907 Western Australia build a rabbit fence, to protect itself from the huge rabbit population. This fence(s) streched about more than 3.000 km. You can finde more about the fence(s) here on Wikipedia.
Third, in 1932, Western Australia fought an Emu War — true and unbelievable! Australian Military was sent out to kill the immense population of Emus, which caused huge damage on wheat harvest. You can finde more about the Emu War here on Wikipedia.
