San Lorenzo de El Escorial and blackberries.

San Lorenzo de El Escorial and blackberries.
The impressive, huge, awe-inspiring yet oppressively grim monastery-palace of Felipe II is a little softened seen through the brambles! Taken from the Roman road.

Grim monastery?
Some good looking blackberries there. I can almost taste them in a blackberry cobbler. Nice picture.

Hi Guy.
Cobbler - yes a good use for them. So is the traditional British apple and blackberry crumble. I have made it for my Spanish friends here in Madrid and they all fall in love with it; so different to anything they know!
Grim monastery? Well yes; in certain lights, I think so! It matches some aspects of the the character of it's founder, Felipe II (Philip II to some!). Interesting to think that this was the nerve centre of the largest World empire seen at that time.
Best wishes, Andy

Hi Yves,
I'm not sure I understand the French here - '... j'en decroche une passage pour la manger ...'
The translation service (as with Pano) is lamentable!
But thank you!!
Best wishes, Andy
