Windows, doors and details- Zugarramurdi, Spain

We recently visited the tiny village of Zugarramurdi in Northern Navarra on a drippy Saturday afternoon. The village is famous for its caves where pagans secretly practiced rituals in the Middle Ages, and the horrific witch trials that occurred there during the Spanish Inquisition. An air of magic still remains in the winding streets with traditional Basque whitewashed houses and green and red shuttered windows. I'm not often drawn to making scenic photographs, but something about the wetness of the day and the colors and textures captured me.
