Sombra y Luz is mostly a reference used during bullfights but it can also apply to Semana Santa as it does in this image. The paso of “Nuestra Señora de los Dolores y Santísimo Cristo de la Caridad” passes under the Arco de Regla, part of the remains of the old town walls. This was recorded two hours ago during Jueves Santo de Semana Santa in Rota, Spain. Handheld image captured with a Canon EOS 40D sporting a EFS 18-135 f/3.5-5.6 IS lens just an hour ago
