Tibidabo is a 512-metre high mountain overlooking Barcelona. From its summit you get some stunning views over this lovely Spanish city and the surrounding Mediterranean coastline which is a good reason to get up there if you are looking for shooting some spectacular city skyline’s images, particularly at dusk or night. But there’s one more photographic reason to make it up there: the historical Tibidabo Amusement Park.
The breathtaking City of Arts and Sciences (Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias) is the most important tourist sightseeing in Valencia and also the main destination for photographers heading to this lovely Spanish city. The City of Arts and Sciences is a large entertainment-based cultural and architectural complex mostly designed by the worldwide famous locally born architect, Santiago Calatrava.
As a professional photographer organizing photo tours in Barcelona, I must admit I have seen often participant photographers shooting photos of a given visited place (for example, a building or a cityscape) too quickly without checking view angle or composition first. This happened to me many times not only with beginner photographers but even with intermediate or advanced ones.
Barcelona Before Sunrise is an exclusive photo tour I just set up in Barcelona. This one and half hour photo tour takes place in the historical and lovely Gothic Quarter district located in the old town. The photo tour is mainly aimed to enthusiast photographers who want to explore and discover the most iconic and picturesque corners of Gothic Quarter just before sunrise when the old town is not filled yet with people and tourists.
Memories of my latest journey down to Andalusia still linger in my mind now I’m back to Barcelona. The pleasant and sweet scent of orange blossoms, the bright green rolling hills landscape, where even a lonely white cottage becomes a monument, those pretty white washed villages perched spectacularly atop a crag or the western atmosphere sheltered in the spectacular badlands-like Tabernas desert, one of the wildest and driest parts of Europe.
