Mini Guide To Barcelona

Platja de la Nova Icària By Professional Photographer Yannick Dixon

Did you know that National Geographic puts Barcelona at number one in it’s list of Top 10 Beach Cities? It’s not really difficult to see why…

With its architectural wonders, beautiful beaches, vibrant public places and sunny weather this Mediterranean gem offers a plethora of fantastic opportunities for those seeking an exciting city break.

This ‘Mini Guide To Barcelona’ is written for anyone who might be experiencing Barcelona for the first time and looking for tips about locations to visit, getting around and cool things to look out for.

Casa de Campo

The day before I took this photograph I had travelled above Casa de Campo on the cable car ride. Being in the cable car gave me a fantastic view of the park and the beautiful snow covered mountains in the distance. I’d seen tree plantations and vast areas of land dedicated to regenerating the park from the air and I decided to take a closer look and take some photographs on foot the following afternoon.

I climbed a rather steep path up a hill in order to take this photograph, but I certainly think it was worth the extra effort in the end. The playground hidden amongst the trees and tree plantations in the lower right of the photograph go someway in showing the scale of human intervention for regeneration against the vastness of nature.

Madrid Metro Station

Madrid Metro Stations

In the early hours of Saturday morning I arrived back in the UK after six wonderful days exploring and photographing the Spanish capital of Madrid.

Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing a selection of documentary photographs that I took while encountering life on the city streets and wandering in Madrid’s largest urban park Casa de Campo.

While I continue to make my way through processing and editing the 900 photographs I shot during the trip, I thought I’d start things off by posting this portrait taken in a Madrid Metro Station.

The metro is one of the quickest modes of transport in Madrid, yet there are plenty of passing moments which take place at station platforms that reflect a more tranquil side to the city’s busy cosmopolitan image.
