38.4ºN (Alicante, Spain 2017)
We spent Christmas and New Year's in Alicante this year. With temperatures reaching almost 25ºC, it was the perfect destination to get away from London's wet and cold winter. Home to the Volvo Ocean Race, this port city on Spain’s southeastern Costa Blanca has a long maritime history, dating back to the Greek and Phoenician traders who came to trade in 1000 BC. Due to the city geographical location, it usually enjoys very mild winters and a climate very similar to that of Los Angeles, California. To make this photograph, I sought a creative composition using the chair's interesting shadow, and used the passing rowboat in the background to balance the elements inside my frame.
