Photographer's Note

Yes, it's truth, it's a desert and it’s in Europe concretely in Spain. Moreover it's the biggest desert in Europe and it’s a biosphere reserve from the UNESCO. The name is “Las Bardenas Reales”. It’s situated on the north of Spain inside Navarra, where there is a very big contrast between the green and mountainous panorama of the Pyrenees in the north and the southern desolate and desert landscape. And you can pass from one to other just driving 80 km. The landscape can be described as a cuesta landscape with mesa shaped highs, steep slopes and deeply dissected valleys.

That place is fantastic and when you are inside, you don’t know where to point the camera because everywhere there are great rocks, nice textures or big panoramas for make a wonderful picture. It’s really a very amazing place.

We were very, very lucky with the weather because all afternoon was cloudy and we expected for the worst. But, in the last minute, just on sunset, the sun appeared for some minutes, enough for take eighth or nine good pictures and here one of they.
