Dehesa (Pasture lands)

An unusual wintery picture of what was one of the most photogenic pasture lands of the South of the Peninsula, formed by autochthonous Aleppo pines and holm oaks, currently aesthetically wrecked by the planting of almond trees between trees and their  fences. It is a real shame that there is no conservation of these agricultural landscapes of high ecological, aesthetic and cultural value.

Panoramic photo consisting of 4 Images, taken with digital camera, lens 24-70 mm f: 4 at F:14, 100 ISO, 1/4 second, polarizing filter.

Delta

An image reflecting the tail of a reservoir in times of drought, with its islands of silt and life around. To make these images with saturated colors the sun should be behind the photographer and it is necessary to choose a high point of view, which also helps to separate the Islands and create sufficient space between them.

Photo taken with digital camera, lens 80-400 mm f: 4 at F:16, 100 ISO, 1/4 second, polarizing filter.

Sierra Nevada

A wintery scene among one of the many water irrigation channels in this mountain range, with its Holm oak and Pyrenean oak trees, forming a landscape that shows that it is possible to co-exist sustainably with the natural environment.  

Panoramic photo with digital camera with lens 15 mm f:2. 4 at F:13, ISO 100 and 1 second. 

Geoparque Costa Vasca

A photo portraying the flysch at a very late hour, yet its realization was possible thanks to the clouds that kept their colour though being almost at night and the lighting of the foreground by the light of the full moon. 

Made with digital camera, lens 24 – 70 mm f: 2.8 at F:10, 400 ISO and 110 seconds. 

Rio Tinto

An image that reflects the River during a flood, in contrast to floods in the rainy season, during the first hours the water kept its usual reddish colours, which allowed me to get an image dreamed of for some time, portraying the river with all his bravery, strength and greatness.

Hoya de Guadix

A detail of what used to be one of the most photogenic and valuable pasturelands of the peninsula, where oak trees mingle with native carrasco pine. Its aesthetic appearance is currently quite degraded due to the massive planting of almond trees and their fence. 

Taken with digital camera, lens 24-70 mm f:2.8 at F:16, to 320 ISO, 1/250 second. 

Hoya de Guadix

A portrait of the dehesa (pasturelands), landscape shaped by the hand of man, to clarify the dense Mediterranean forest that formerly occupied large areas of the interior of the Peninsula. This location in particular has the valuable curiosity of treasuring a mixture between holm oaks and autochthonous Aleppo pine trees.

Made with digital camera, 10 – 20 mm lens F:4, at 100 ISO, F:11 and 1/30 second,  polarizing filter.

Flowering Rhododendron

A picture showing a lush flowering of Rhododendron (subspecies Ponticum baeticum) in a mixed forest of resin pine trees and cork oaks in the subtropical forests of Los Alcornocales, which are despite the environmental threats one of the best preserved native forests of Europe.

Made with analogue camera, 24 – 50 mm lens F:2.8, at  F:11, Velvia 50 ISO forced at 100 ISO and 1/50 second,  polarizing filter.

Flowering Rhododendron

An image showing a lush flowering of Rhododendron (subspecies Ponticum baeticum) in a misty forest in the subtropical jungles of Los Alcornocales, which are despite the environmental threats one of the best preserved native and autochthonous forests  in Europe.

Made with analogue camera, 24 – 50 mm lens F:2.8, at  F:11, Velvia 50 ISO and 1/30 second,  polarizing filter.

Sierra Nevada

A picture usually not associated with the mountain range, but it is part of the protected area of the Park. The Laguna de Padul was once a lagoon of much larger extension, although it is currently in a state of recovery after a human over-exploitation over the past centuries. Beneath its waters is an important layer of peat which was exploited until recently and that contains remains of animals of past times as the mammoth.

Made with digital camera, 17 – 50 mm lens F:2.8, at 200 ISO, F:11 and 1/30 second,  polarizing filter.
