Exotic Spain

Photo Challenge: Exotic Spain

January 14, 2018 10:03 5 comments

Theme: Exotic Spain

Spain is one of the first few countries that springs to mind when we think of exotic destinations. While we can’t quite put our finger on exactly what makes it so alluring, we wonder whether it has something to do with the large variety of refreshing sangrias, warm summers, the most blue flag beaches in the world or the tremendous volume of outdoor festivals. Don’t even start us on the calçotadas in Catalunya, cocido in Madrid and pescaíto frito in Andalucía. Spain reigns supreme in the list of exotic locations. This is why we present to you our Exotic Spain Photo Challenge to celebrate the vibrant essence of this country.

Judge’s Feedback: 

“I absolutely love how the colours all seem to stream towards the middle. I was able to see but also feel every turn and every grove in the rock formations. This photo is raw and absolutely mesmerizing.” - Alissa

"Reminiscent of Gaztelugatxe, this location explains exactly why Spain is seen as the ultimate exotic location! The twists and turns in the castle rock amidst the shimmeringly blue ocean gives us all the feels!" - Rumaisa

"The photographers sets the scene, almost as if we have a private view into the cobbled houses of Granada. The framing of the photo is on point. One can imagine strolling through these exotic streets of Granada in summer.” - Rumaisa

Photographer: Jose Fernandez

Location: Tenerife, Spain
