Photo du Jour - Spanish Shutters

Shutters

The simple, rustic doors and colorful shutters in Spain were heaven for me and my camera! My favorite place for photographs was definitely the old fortress of Peñíscola.
Whitewashed houses, colorful tiled balconies and flowers growing everywhere. All set against the stunning backdrop of the blue Mediterranean.

Thanks everyone for commenting!
My friends were very patient with me when I made them stop every few meters to take another photo of a door, a view, a balcony, a sign, etc.
