A selection of images from our trip to Madrid earlier this year. The sun largely shone, creating shadows which gave the Cervantes Monument a wonderful depth.
Mercado San Antón is a fabulous place for lunch – you buy your food and drinks from a range of stalls representing different types of Spanish cuisine. At weekends, it is packed with Madrileños and you’re lucky to find a perch but midweek, it is much quieter.

Like many large cities, Madrid has its underground where we snapped each other, as well as other passengers.
We had plenty of time to spare at Atocha train station before heading to Barcelona – it’s a great place to hang around. It has a wonderful, lush bit of greenery with a pool and many terrapins and turtles – unfortunately, this was under wraps for cleaning so we had to make do photographing people.
The Templo de Debod is a fascinating ancient Egyptian temple near Plaza de España – also very good for sunbathing.
But while they say the rain in Spain stays mainly on the plain, sometimes it wanders over to the cities.
Good weather for ducks though…
