Photographer's Note

I am back from a photo trip in the Bardenas Reales desert in Spain. This desert sits in southeast Navarre. It has unique landscapes in Europe, made of impressive rock formations created by erosion. It looks like a western movie scenery. The desert was filed as biosphere reserve by Unesco in 2000.

I start my travelogue with a picture of the most emblematic (but not the most beautiful to my opinion) place of the desert : Casteldetierra, i.e. "the soil castle". It is a fairy chimney, a column of eroded crumbly rocks (clay in Bardenas) with a top of harder rock (sandstone here) that resists better to erosion. This is a very common geological formation in the Bardenas Reales desert. Photo token at sunset just after we arrived in the desert last sunday.
