Took this shot this morning on our return from a Walking and Scrambling trip to Mallorca. Our Air Berlin flight from Palma de Mallorca passed right over the Alpujarras and Lanjaron. Conditions were very clear. The town can be seen, together with the water bottling plant and the wind turbines towards the Valle de Lecrin.

The motorway from Granada to Motril can be seen running down the left hand side.
