This Concours of Elegance, in the most wonderful surroundings of the former summer residence of the Spanish royal family, provided me with a different photographic opportunity to the grit and urgency found at motor racing events. Here I was able to consider and compose my shots, focusing on the design and detail of the vehicles, at times wandering into a visual approach that was more abstract rather than revealing. These photos represent some of the shots and vehicles I enjoyed the most and are not a comprehensive record of exhibits.

The event was quite low-key and informal unlike other Concours events I have attended in England where there is more pomp and champagne!
