The photographer: John S. McKinney of Elk Grove

Behind the lens: Recently my wife and I returned from Granada, Spain, where we visited our son and his family for two weeks. We walked and walked all over the city. The walk up to the Mirador de San Nicolas was well worth the view. Like many other tourists, we journeyed through the Albayzín district on narrow, winding cobblestone streets to get this amazing view of the Alhambra. The sun had just set and there was a hint of a rainbow behind Spain's Sierra Nevada.
