Spanish Banks -Caution

Liz Bedford may like to know that two years ago when arriving at my holiday home in Competa I discovered my Spanish bank account had been frozen, and the only way to get it unfrozen was to provide the bank with proof of my income. This I did by arranging for copies of my pension statements to be emailed to the bank, thankfully before any of the standing orders were left unpaid.
So, if you have a Spanish bank account and don’t reside there, be aware that if you fail to supply proof of income by 31st August annually your bank account is liable to be frozen.

 What’s On- Photography – 5 Nights

In the hills of southern Spain over five hundred years ago, a mix of cultures and religions created a lifestyle steeped in beauty, philosophy and the ancient sciences. This five-night photography holiday is based in the traditional pueblo blanco of Canillas de Albaida in the mountains of Andalucía, an area south of Granada where the Moors were finally forced to abandon the Iberian Peninsula.

Led by award-winning British photographer Nikki de Gruchy, you will engage in a range of photography opportunities:

  • an afternoon exploration of the Albayzín, the medieval Moorish quarter of Granada and a world heritage site, with a picnic lunch stop on the coast enroute to Granada (street and architectural photography),
  • an evening visit around the gardens of the famous Alhambra palace, and the Generalife (night and garden photography),
  • walking along the acequias – irrigation channels dating from the time of the Moors – in the two national parks which border the village and afford views to the Mediterranean and the Rif mountains of Morocco (landscape and nature photography),
  • a wine tasting ‘degustación’ at a local bodega (food photography),
  • exploring the Mudéjar rural architecture of both Canillas de Albaida, and Salares, our visit coinciding with the annual Festival Árabe Andalusí where we’ll enjoy a souk, music and dancing (street and portrait photography)

Photo critique sessions give you feedback on your images and include post-processing editing suggestions. Superior accommodation in en-suite rooms in the heart of the village will ensure a comfortable stay.

The workshop price includes five nights accommodation with breakfast, Málaga airport transfers, transport to Granada and evening entry to the Alhambra gardens, transport to Salares, wine tasting, a picnic lunch and a delicious three course dinner on three evenings. Please note that drinks with dinner are charged at an additional cost and we are fully licensed.

Maximum group size of 6 ensures individual and tailored tuition.

Suitable for beginners as well as more experienced photographers who want to learn more about the technical and creative aspects of their camera, and the art of visual language.

Euro 595 per person sharing a twin ensuite room.

Euro 100 single person supplement.

Nearest airport: Málaga, with connections to over 60 countries worldwide.

For further details email essentiallye@googlemail.com, or phone/WhatsApp +34 616 530035.
