Another in my World from Above series. Mountainous landscape shot not from the ground but from a commercial plane flying over Spain at about 11,000m/36,000 ft above sea level. This is a wonderful example of a table top mountain or mesa. I was fascinated by how this massive flat mountain, clearly covered in arable fields, raises up so steeply from the rough and rugged area round about. Witness to the millions of years of development.
Nikon D200. Sigma 18-200mm. Tonal correction, etc. in PS.
