Autumn leaves in Granada

The first time I came across this little spot, the ground was completely blanketed in golden leaves. Following a pathway snaking up beside the river behind the medieval Alhambra palace, it was like stepping into an autumnal fairytale. With the December sunlight filtered through the yellowed trees, the place was lit with a soft glow. Low waterfalls trickle downstream through the crumbling walls of the palace, with the river waters gathering scatterings of leaves in its flow – the same as it has probably done for over six hundred years.
