This shot has very great composition John....i guess that the sea water not only produces a better olive but it also gave the man all of that fresh salt air to enjoy....petersmile

Looks like any idyllic lifestyle John
John Prior: Thanks Chris, If they drove on the right (meaning left) side of the road all would be perfectsmile
Beautiful picture JOhn, And a contradiction, since one doesn't expect to see a rural activity in a beach setting like this. Great!
John Prior: Thanks Sheila. The caves at Nerja tomorrow

Indeed it looks idyllic place... washing olives in salted water?

All this is nicely captured... especially with this glorious sunshine...and the sea nearby !
John Prior: Thanks Sidney, yes I think so, a substitute for brine perhaps.
Excellent shot, John. The man, his olives and his bucket are a great bit of colour in the mostly grey seascape.
John Prior: Thank you Mary.
This beats the rush hour! I love olives and quite easily sit there with him smile
John Prior: Thanks Linda, It does the Spanish seem very laid back, most seem to enjoy a good lifestyle.
Excellent rule of thirds.
Subject was placed strategically; got my attention straight away!
Good job.
John Prior: Thank you London.
So unusual place for preparing olives: may be it's a special recipe? Nice composition for this one.

John Prior: Thanks Dom, you could be right, there was a bottle of something also, partly hidden by his arm

John Prior: Thank you Brian.
