Spanish Steps

By adagio
Many thanks for the votes & comments on my previous upload, with special thanks to Debra (deejay10) for the User Award (PM sent), very much appreciated.

Spanish Steps, an archived shot of Capdepera Castle on the island of Majorca, revamped and very much reworked to give an authentic look. I have mounted this on a black background to emphasise the feeling of coming out of the shadows and into the light. A little bit of historical info is given below, courtesy of Wikipedia.

Originally there had been a watchtower where the Castle of Capdepera stands today which was used to guard the coast. In 1300 James II of Aragon ordered the construction of a fortified village which would control the uninhabited land below and the maritime routes with Majorca. For centuries the village survived behind its walls protected from pirate attacks. As the danger of such attacks disappeared residents of the walled town started to relocate themselves at the bottom of the 162m hill which led to the development of modern-day Capdepera.

Have a good day.
