Into the Light

There's something very enticing about an archway, whether it's an irregular one, as in yesterday's cave pictures, or a man-made one. It frames the view, giving a long perspective, but also invites a closer look and a passage through to the other side. I took these two pictures last spring at the Alcazaba, a Moorish fort in Malaga, Spain. The view through the arch above is of the Mediterranean Sea, and the one below of a portion of the gardens within the walls. The shiny stripe in the floor is a shallow water trough.
