"Light Is The Land" by Alexander Meeus
"The Bardenas Reales is a semi-desert in the north of Spain.
The special micro climate turned this area into a moonlike landscape that is more reminiscent of an African or Mexican desert than the landscape of the Iberian peninsula.¨
Hot summers, cold winters, long dry periods interrupted by heavy rains and the constant wind, called Cierzo, formed this unique and abrupt landscape of canyons and plateaus.
In the midday sun, the central zone - BÃ rdena Blanca - transforms, thanks to the presence of white salts in the ground, into a pale white landscape."
