Granada and a distant storm


I got up early on my last morning in Alpine and took a walk down Holland Avenue. When I turned around to go back to the hotel, I saw thunder clouds piling up above the mountains east of town.

Later, at breakfast, I heard a woman say she’d seen lighting.

It never rained.

  1. Sweet ! And whatever the word sweet is in Spanish. Do the Alps extend to Spain ?


    • My Spanish is (very) limited, so I don’t know the translation for “sweet” in this context. Google Translate offers dulce (sweet, gentle, dulcet, dovelike), suave (soft, gentle, mild, sweet, silky, subdued), azucarado (sugary, sweet, sugared, sugar-coated, candied), meloso (mellow, sweet, honeyed, mealy, saponaceous, smooth-spoken), and fresco (fresh, cool, crisp, new, sweet, sassy). But none of those sound quite right…


  2. Wow, thanks for the lesson!


  3. Stunningly gorgeous photo, Melinda!


  4. I like the processing. Very moody, as if rain were expected.
