A dreamy locale

November 12, 2017

Our friends at McKinnon and Harris recently gave us a present that we adore! The picture book The Gardens on the Alhambra Hill, A Mediated Vision by Fernando Manso is comprised of beautifully photographed landscapes of Alhambra Hill in Spain and quotes corresponding to the gorgeous landscape photographs.

Gardens have been a vital part of humanity for the last several hundred years. Specifically at Alhambra Hill,  which was built from the eleventh to the fifteenth centuries, the gardens have been an inseparable part of this uniquely special place.

Fernando Manso, the Spanish photographer who took these book’s beautiful pictures, is magical with his lens and evokes a feeling of tranquility in the reader rarely found in today’s busy world.

Beautiful gardens! The quote across this photograph’s page, “I want to understand the reason for so much harmony around me.”
