Wow. That is quite exquisite. Such an interesting photo too as the structure contrasts with the modern motor cars.

Marko 8 August 2012 at 10:34  

It really is a nice contrast but I would like it even more if those cars were not there. :)

Gorgeous photo! Love all the texture!

Impressive structure.

Loc sigur pentru un cuib de barză.

I agree with the other comments, but the thing that makes this shot great for me is the crane nest and lovely white crane atop the bell tower. beautiful and singular.

beautiful image, I like the contrast between the cars and the structure-
thank you for stopping by the blog for WW- I noticed the flaw you demonstrated- I used Camera Pudding app with a built in texture, layer- I appreciate your keen eye!
Best,
Amelia

Thank you all. You are very much welcome to visit again.

@Frank:
I also like that. It is a stork though. I didn't think anyone would notice it.
If you like it, I dedicated a separate post to those beautiful creatures a few posts ago. You can check it out here: http://www.travel-pb.com/2012/07/storks-of-el-espinar.html

@amelia:
I am glad you took my remark in a good way as it was intended. :)

Fantastic capture. This shot just reeks antiquity and history. Yet, the clock, bells and that huge birds nest add so many interesting things to see that I could spend a day on one of those balconies relaxing and watching the day go by.

Curiosa Kat 8 August 2012 at 19:51  

ahh, so that's a stork... the nest looks huge!

i think i'm gonna go crazy taking shots of every little detail i see if i visit this place: the door, the fire hydrant, the walls!

thanks for dropping by my site and sharing yours. =)

Fabulous buildings. The cars add an interesting contrast.

SoriN 8 August 2012 at 21:20  

Beautiful photo! :)
Indeed is the contrast between old and new.

colleen 8 August 2012 at 22:38  

Awesome! I'll have to look at it when I get to a bigger computer because I can't quite make out the bell room shape. I thought by the title it was going to be in Sedona AZ where there is a rock formation called that.

NatureFootstep 8 August 2012 at 23:20  

a great shot of the old building. :)

anotherjennifer 8 August 2012 at 23:36  

Beautiful shot. Id love to have coffe on one of those balconies!

Marlene 8 August 2012 at 23:37  

Very striking structure! This type of architecture I want to see more.

Sugardrive 8 August 2012 at 23:54  

wow. just....wow. this is ahhhhhmazing.

AVCr8teur 9 August 2012 at 02:46  

Lovely architecture. I like the black railings and colorful flowers on the balconies. Are the bells ever rung?

Marko 9 August 2012 at 09:58  

@Curiosa Kat:
I definitely tried to capture every possible detail of this cute little village. Unfortunately my time there was very short but I did get some really nice shots.
Some of those and a few more from an even more charming neighboring village will be published in next couple of post.

Marlene:
You will have a chance to see more of this in my future posts. You should check us out more often. ;)

AVCr8teur:
Unfortunately there was no sound of bells during our short visit. It would be interesting to see it in action though. The whole tower thing didn't appear all that stable.
