Between Two Seas

Sometimes, I have commented about La Manga del Mar Menor. It is a stretch of sand that delineates two seas: the Mar Menor (the largest saltwater lagoon in Europe, ideal for water sports such as sailing) and the Mediterranean Sea. This means, you have the opportunity to swim in two seas with different temperatures and different salinity, on the same day.
More info: here.

Auditorium Main Entrance

One of the things I like to highlight from the Auditorium of Murcia, is the great treatment given to visitors. Both hostesses and stewards, offered their best smiles and always bring a hand to help.

Bullring Of Murcia At Night

One of the things that I love about photography is playing with light. I find it amazing how the same object can change its look just changing light.
This same facade of the bullring of Murcia I photographed in 2009 by day.

Mora Tortoise. Tortuga Mora.

The Mora tortoise, Testudo graeca, is one of the eight turtle species traditionally classified in the genus Testudo.
In the Iberian Peninsula, it only can be found on the South east; Murcia  (Almenara Mountain) and Almería.
The tortoise is in danger in the Iberian Peninsula. Their number is not very high. Among the causes of its decline we can highlight human pressure on their habitat by agriculture and forest fires, very common in arid places.
