Equestrian Shadow

Statue of Ramon Berenguer El Gran

This grand statue of Ramon Berenguer III (1082 – 1131), Count of Barcelona, casts a statue that is possible more impressive than the statue itself.

The photo above is an old one (2007 in fact) and when I wandered down that way last week I found that poor old Ramon is currently enveloped in a blue tarpaulin, while they renovate the square in which he stands.

I hope the lighting goes back in the same position so I get to enjoy the impressive shadow again.

  1. Hi Debbie,

    What a great shot, and I’m happy that the powers-that-be are protecting the statue in lovely blue. Thanks for playing today.

    Have a Beautiful Blue Monday!


    • The photo isn’t great quality though. I had hoped to get a new shot with my tripod – but it looks like I’ll need to wait a few months!

    • Madrid and Barcelona in one week – a perfect combination! And I’m back in Barcelona on Wednesday – lucky me!

        • Sorry, I do not quite understand what the translator says.
          Every Wednesday back to Barcelona and Fridays you fly to France to train? You like sports ?
          Madrid then you have not been these days?
          Sorry for the questions , I hope not to bother .

        • Only this week. I am going to the south of France for the weekend then home again.

          I don’t come to Spain every week, unfortunately. But I will be back again later in the summer.

          I was in Madrid at the beginning of last week but only for 2 days.

          I do like sport, especially watching football and riding horses. I am going to France to see the white horses in the Camargue I have seen Barcelona at Camp Nou a few times. I haven’t see Real Madrid yet! Are you a football fan?

        • Truly do not stop traveling.
          Do you like football?
          I not me, but at home games are on television.
          I did not know at the Nou Camp had shows with white horses. How cute !!
          I’ve never ridden a horse.


  2. clever take on the wpc – and quite a difference from ’07 – and I also hope the shadow is there again once the reno is done
