The NASA Features Granada as APOD

Granada NASA APOD

Photo by Granada photographer, Guido Montañés

The Granada newspapers are all aflutter this morning with the news that NASA’s Astronomy Blog has featured this picture of Granada’s Sierra Nevada topped by a gigantic cone-shaped cloud (or is it an alien starship?) as an APOD (Astronomical Photo of the Day). My heartfelt congratulations to photographer, Guido Montañés, who is the son of an old friend of ours, Pedro Montañés.

Our house–and my studio and Gallinero residence–is roughly indicated by the church in the center of the picture. We’re in the valley directly behind the spire, nine kilometers south of the city.

Come and see us when you can and we’ll talk about fine-art prints!
