May 2017 - Contrasts - Robin Taylor Photography

A few shots from the end of this month from very different locations.Myself and my family jetted across to Ibiza for a mini holiday and naturally the camera came too. Whilst for many people the White Isle conjures up images of 24 hour party excesses, we very much needed a bit of peace and tranquility. About 4 years ago we stayed in Portinatx on the northern end of the island; relatively quiet with sandy beaches within rocky coves backed by pine clad hillsides. This time we weren`t too far away in San Miguel; another small beach with our hotel high above the beach and an immaculate turquoise sea. If your perception of the island is purely high adrenaline music and no sleep then fine but there is so much beauty packed onto this small rock in the Mediterranean Sea.The second set of photographs are from Cleadon Hill Nature Reserve. Since my last visit at the end of the winter, the grass is full of spring wild flowers, Skylarks and there are  ripening crops in the fields beneath the hills. One day it`s a balmy summer`s day, the next misty and cold - late spring in the North of England, who needs constant sunshine !Thank You Robin
