Another in my World from Above Series – mountainous landscape shot from a commercial plane flying over Spain at about 11,000m/36,000 ft above sea level.

I was fascinated by the folds of the rock that are a witness to the millions of years of development. The coloured fields and rusty coloured earth were also real eye-catchers.

Nikon D200. Sigma 18-200mm. Captured in RAW. Tonal correction, etc. in PS.
I had to use some grad filters to darken the top part which appears lighter from this height and angle.

    Fantastic capture. The rusty orange red could be the iron ore content along with possible clay.

  • Ann, thank you for your lovely comment! There definitely does seem to be iron ore colouring and clay but I’m not an expert – just a fascinated observer:-)
