Travel Photo Thursday — March 29, 2012 — A Magic Moment in Sevilla, Spain

Posted by on Mar 29, 2012 in Travel Photo Thursday, Uncategorized | 35 comments


Welcome to another week of Travel Photo Thursday. We had our first real day of spring here in Daejeon yesterday. I was able to shed my winter coat for the first time since returning from my winter travel. What a fantastic feeling that was! Here’s hoping that the warm weather continues and the trees and flowers start strutting their beauty. This week’s shot is a magic moment I captured in Sevilla, Spain.

To join in the Travel Photo Thursday fun simply post a photo on your blog. Return here and place your link in the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post.

Please post a link to a post featuring a travel photo, not simply a link to your blog.

As a courtesy please post a link to Budget Travelers Sandbox. 

If you do tweet a shot, please use the hashtag #TPThursday.

The buildings at the Plaza de Espana in Sevilla are not open to the public, since many of the offices are still in use. However, visitors can walk along the corridors looking out onto the plaza, and the photo opportunities are endless. Here is my magic moment; caught just as I was entering the first level.


One Magic Moment….

  8. I can picture exactly where you were.For a winter scene it looks pretty darn nice. I love the framing through the arch.

    • I was surprised at how good the trees looked. One of the few downsides of traveling in Spain in the winter was the lack of green foliage and flowers.

  9. I love this picture! It looks like it belongs in one of those fairy tale images with the carriage and arch – beautiful. Hoping for continued warm weather and spring blossoms your way.

    • Yes, definitely a fairy tale aura around it. We are back in the deep freeze again today. Warming up tomorrow and then another plunge down on Tuesday or Wednesday; weird weather.

  10. The framing, the colours, the scene… gorgeous!

  28. Tried to tell you last Thursday what a fabulous photo this is, but the ship’s internet simply whirled and twirled away both the minutes and the money and I gave up. Didn’t want to let this slip past though without a comment now that I am back on terra firma.

    • Internet on a ship…I can imagine it’s not that reliable. Thanks for your kind words!
