Photographer's Note

The town of Ronda is in southern Spain. It sits astride a deep canyon, and this bridge links the two sides. It is called the New Bridge, built in 1793, because there are two older bridges spanning the gorge. Everybody takes this photo, and you can see why. It's magic and spectacular.

To get to this viewpoint you walk down a path that leads from the old town and follows an old defensive wall built in the days of Islamic rule in Ronda. The layers of history go back thousands of years in this area.

I used a polariser to bring out the colour of the sky and vegetation.
