More Photos of the Alhambra - Granada

Here are some more photos of the Nasrid Palaces of the Alhambra. Most of them are close ups. Please note the wooden ceiling in the photo. My photo does not do it justice, but it is the most amazingly detailed marquetry, combining innumerable small pieces of wood into a harmonious whole. The stone work was originally painted in briliant colours - what an amazing sight it must have been - although I really like the current white lace.
I wish I was a better photographer, but I hope this will inspire you enough to look at more images of the Alhambra - or, even better, to visit it yourself.

Synchronicity strikes again! These are wonderful photos for inspiring knitted lace. I have just been blogging about inspiration and where it's found. I'll have to go to the Alhambra now!
