Hello friends, in holiday travel this year we returned to see some natural wonders of the Pyrenees, as the gorge that I present here today. It is a gorge on the river Cinca, on the road leading up from the beautiful medieval town of Ainsa towards the French border, I hope you enjoy.
The river Cinca (Zinca in Aragonese) is a river in northeastern Spain born in the circus of Pineta, in the National Park of Ordesa and Monte Perdido in the Pyrenees. It flows into the river Segre shortly before the latter may Mequinenza Ebro (Zaragoza). Forms a rich agricultural region with Monzon, Fraga and vicinity.
The river rises in Cinca Marboré glacier at the base of the massif of the Three Sorores crowning the head of the Valley of Pineta (Monte Perdido). Begins its descent from the waterfalls and streams that drain the Marboré Ibón, joining its course the waters tumble from La Larri. Walk around Pineta, proud U perfect valley glacier moraine and retouched background carries. Bielsa is joined on the Barrosa, and somewhat lower in the saline Cinqueta who stay in the Val de Gistau. The river leaves the vertex Cotiella your left, about 3,000 m above sea level and around the Mountain Rock, Mesozoic limestone lying in crease. On the right side, in a crevice, the river enters Bellos, whose Añisclo Valley is of great interest. At right Aínsa receives the waters of Ara. Medium Reservoir is at the junction of Ara and Cinca. Immediately downstream of Medium, after crossing the gorge Entremón is dammed back into the reservoir of the degree. In Grade starts Cinca the great canal, which links to the Gallego. Just after the Cinca receives from the left to Ésera, its largest tributary.
From its valley Grade acquires the characteristics of Aragon Somontano: mesetones staggered aggregates, clay, marl and sandstone, with some conglomerate, increasingly layered shaly horizonatles and as we walk south. By contrast the lower terraces are irrigated from the check dams settled in the straits of the Pyrenean foothills.
On the right receives the Vero, and by Monsoon to Sosa on the left. Below, the Alcanadre is added to the right. Finally, in Masalcorreig, receives Mequinenza Segre to lead in the Ebro River during a very short stretch forms the border between the provinces of Huesca and Lleida.
In his course gives name to some of the towns through which it passes, as Albalate of Cinca Cinca and Monsoon.
The presence of man has not been found in the high headboard, but with the medium-high and stretches through the course, although this is known by ancient testimonies.
Migratory peoples, in the first Iron Age used the Cinca valley on its way to the inside, that have become the ethnic populated this area, the Ilergetes. The current name comes from Cinga as Julius Caesar in his account of the Civil War, he was appointed by that name. Undergoes a great change of name in the Arab period because of call passes Cinga be called Az-Zaytum, meaning river of Olives or olives.

THis is a nice view of this gorge with the greenery then the rocks making an interesting contrast. The light was difficult to manage but you did it well. I like the deepness the small road creates leading into the forest.

It is really beautiful landscape, inaccessible mountains and a mountain river, well executed and presented

Awesome capture of this gorge, I wonder if the gorge can handle major flooding. Las Vegas received 2 inches (the most ever in 1 day) rain last Tuesday and there was flooding all over the city, one man died. Good use of the shadows to create depth in this gorge. Good lighting and dof with sharp details. Well done, tfs.

Le regard suit naturellement le cours d'eau dans l'image, ce qui lui donne de la profondeur. Le paysage est remarquable et d'une grande netteté malgré la légère brume.

Una hermoso paisaje de montaña, la vista del rio cruzando este alto desfiladero es fantastica, una deliciosa imagen captado las verdes paredes, donde la vegetacion se abre paso entre la piedra.
La composicion vertical da una magnifica perspectiva, buena luz y colorido.
Pasa un feliz fin de semana.

Buenos Dias Angel,
Marvelous perspective from perfect viewpoint. Great alignment of the road taking the eye to the green valley, excellent color contrast. Great composition with the water stream, road and the hills in BG. The deep green tress add a nice contrast to the scene. Very well captured photo.
