A Birds Eye View of the Alicante Sunset

A Birds Eye View of the Alicante Sunset

One of the things I was determined to witness when we were in Alicante recently was the sunset from the top of Santa Barbara Castle – which was right next to our hotel. I have to admit that the climb up to the castle, having previously taken the lift, was a very tiring one but it was worth just for this birds eye view! The photos I am sharing are all in order of the sun going down and I love how the colours change as it does – but I think my favourite image has to be the first image, where the seagull is joining me in enjoying the view!


If you are on Instagram, then I would love you to join my linky, InstaLinkLove. It is open until Sunday evening at 9.30pm (probably one of the easiest linkys out there!).

    The colours and contrast is amazing but the seagul really makes the difference #mysundayphoto

    All of your photos are stunning. I bet you were pleased you did make that climb when you looked through your viewfinder. Alicante looks a bit unreal from way up high. #MySundayPhoto

    Gotta love a good sunset picture. Great the way you’ve caught the sun dipping below the horizon. I keep meaing to try this myself. #MySundayphoto

    Beautiful sunsets! Amazing colour! I love how you caught all those birds in the photos, but especially the guy in the first image.

    I love how you have stayed there and captured each stage. I agree it is the first that does it for me too but they are all beautiful.

    Beautiful. I love the warm glow the sun casts over the town below.

    What a gorgeous view – well worth the climb to capture these photos. Love the stunning orange hues of the sunset – such stunning shots 🙂
