river gorge

Cuenca is an old spanish city perched between two deep river gorges. Fantastic landscape and architecture and a sketchers heaven if it wasnt for the torrid temperatures! The slopes are full of cypress trees, an unusual sight here in Spain were cypresses are more related to graveyards!
There´s a bigger version of the image here.


  1. I saw this beautiful vista on Flickr, Enrique! So glad you've added it here...I didn't know that about cypress trees. They are quite unusual, but you see a lot of them in California, all over the place near where my husband grew up.

  2. It does look fantastic, and so does your painting!
