Photographer's Note

Tras una larga ausencia vuelvo con uno de mis rincones favoritos de la sierra de Madrid, la laguna de los claveles en el Parque Natural de Peñalara.

After a long absence I return with one of my favorite spots in the mountains of Madrid, the Lagoon of the carnations in the Natural Park of Peñalara.

La Laguna de los Claveles está en la ladera este del pico Peñalara, en la zona central de la Sierra de Guadarrama, Madrid. Pertenece al Parque Natural de Peñalara gestionado por la Comunidad de Madrid.

Esta laguna es de origen glaciar y se trata de una laguna de carácter temporal, secándose generalmente a mediados del verano. Tiene una forma alargada de norte a sur y una superficie aproximada de media hectárea. Está a una altitud de 2.119 metros. Esta laguna permanece helada desde Noviembre hasta marzo y debido a esto, no habitan peces en sus aguas, pero sí anfibios y aves.
