Getting back into the swing of things after a nice holiday break. Here’s a shot from the foothills of the Pyrenees in Spain (near the town of Ainsa) of the Mediano Anticline.
I spend about 2 weeks every year around Ainsa teaching field schools. For a real non-geo hoot, visit the Opus Dei monastery (ala Da Vinci Code) just down the lake from this shot.
Tim … I took this photo in 2010 while helping Julian Clark run a deepwater school. That’s the one and only time I’ve been there, would love to head back someday.
Lovely shot, brings back a lot of memories. Amazing to see the reservoir so low that the drowned bell tower (lower left) is fully exposed, rather than just a belfry poking out of the blue. One of my supervisors, Andy Taylor, nearly drowned himself swimming out to that thing for a bet in the early 1990s.
