Impressions of


Cadiz and Costa de la Luz

All images of this gallery were taken between June 11 and June 20 in Cadiz and Novo Sancti Petri (Barrosa beach), Andalucia, Spain. For artistic reasons (I believe that photos should speak for themselves) no captions are displayed together with the images, but by holding your mouse over the thumbnails for a second you should get a brief title caption displayed as a popup-tooltip.
All images were taken with a Sony HX9V compact camera (which comprises a 24-384mm optical zoom range (in 35mm equivalent)), either in Program- or HDR mode.
