River shadows

July and August is too hot around here for mountain walking, except for a walk in the Rio Chillar in Nerja about 50 km East of Málaga. These shots are from last Sunday.

You walk in water and this is really nice when the air is above 30 C. Just make sure that you have shoes on that may get wet.

The vegetation along the river is very pretty. Plenty of blooming oleanders a.o.

By this small waterfall you usually stop and have your picnic. You can climb on a little while further, but the walk in the water stops here and you go back the same way anyway.

Oh, it would be nice walking in the river today. We are experiencing el Terral these days - a very strong and hot foehn wind so staying indoor with the aircon on is for once pleasant alternative to anything outdoor.

Stop by HEY HARRIET to see other Sunday Shadow Shots from around the world and how to join in if you like.

    raging through the deep canyon,
    no one can tame you.
