I have never seen so many swallows before. They are busy from early morning until the sun sets … and then there is the moon.
I have learned that the lemons you see here is a variety called “Verna” that is harvested between February and May. These trees have a second harvest of lemons that is called “Redojo” that are harvested during Summer …
The oranges are of course not just oranges … I do not know, yet, what kind of oranges the ones on the photo above are. I do know that they taste good.
… and cats
or rather kittens. They moved into the finca about a month ago now. Here is one of them. They grow fast.
June, July and August … wow, these months have passed very fast and at the same time very slow.
I broke my ankle the last day of May and have therefore not been able to go out and about as I usually do.
I have been home … and have had time to sort out all my pics = deleting like half of them. Until Spring I used mainly Adobe Lightroom, a bought version, to organize and develop my pics. However, Lightroom started to crash and when I looked into it, found out that it was due to Mac updates.
I really do not like the concept of subscribing to Adobe so I have downloaded the free Adobe Bridge to help me with the overview and organization of my pics. It is not as nice and easy and convenient as Lightroom, but it is ok, especially because it is free. Quitting Lightroom also meant that I was forced to get to use the Affinity Photo that I bought when it was still in Beta to develop and edit … and yes, it is a rather different routine than doing everything in Lightroom, but so far I am very pleased with Affinity though I still have a lot to learn.
So, over the Summer I have not been out taking photographs. But I have a cool roof terrace that I have been able to climb … on one leg, to photograph a bit. Here is a small collection of the stuff I can see from there 🙂
Have not been out photographing a lot this month. It has been cold and dark … and raining.
Love the foliage on the tree (not sure of the name) and it gets lovely yellow flowers once a year.
The shadows on my neighbour’s house fascinates me. The a car passes by at night, the shadows from the lemon trees come to life.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
