La Tomatina

La Tomatina is a long standing tradition in Spain. It takes place in the village of Bunol (Buñol) which is 30 miles west of the city of Valencia.

Infadels at the Tomatina

This video by the Infadels filmed for their track I can’t get enough shows just how crazy it is.

It takes place, on the last Wednesday of August, it is the largest and messiest tomato throwing spectacle in the world. 40’000 kilos of tomatoes, five articulated tipper trucks, 6 fire engines and 44’ooo crazy people.

The best attire is an old T-shirt, old shorts and eye goggles. T-shirts with bullseyes printed on them are not advised.

Wild crazy energy, for dynamic film, video and photo stills locations.

Beach Los Muertos Carboneras, Almeria

This idyllic beach is the perfect film and video location. It is close to San Jose and under an hour from Almeria capital. This video shows it to it’s best advantage.

Playa Los Muertos from the road

The footpath from the carpark

The beach is situated within the Natural park of  Cabo de Gata which literally means Cape Cat. The village of Carboneras is only a five minute drive away.

It can be accessed by the quite steep footpath or by boat from the sea. This beach can often be found deserted. I have never seen it crowded.

Turquoise waters

The long stretch of beach is impressive and has a gravel sand mix, the almost transparent waters allow you to see the seabed even from the cliffs. The water appears to be a deep turquoise color similar to the Caribbean.

There is a second secluded beach at one end

The beautiful white village of Jimena

It’s Andalusian architecture is intact, and being maintained. The surrounding countryside is very diverse from mountains and hunting grounds, to open plains and rich farmland, as this video of Jimena shows.

The castle of Jimena de la Frontera

It boasts a beautiful castle of both Moorish and Roman origin. There are also a number of buildings owned by the vatican. which you can drive right up to or walk the charming cobbled streets, which are quite steep.

Once at the summit on a clear day you can see the city of Algeciras and the Rock of Gibraltar.

Running below the village is the river Hozgarganta a fresh water swimming option. If you prefer the sea, the beaches of Tarifa, Barbate, and Caños de Meca are a short drive to the coast.

Death deifying leap of the Spanish monk

From La Herradura
Why does he do it? How does he do it? When will he next do it?
I don’t know but it’s pretty impressive. The speed he climbs back up the rock face is as impressive as the dive.
But here’s a link to watch it.
