Natural History Photographs

In 1980, I travelled abroad for the first time in my life, one of the destinations being Jaca. If you're in Jace and you look south you cannot miss the impressive Peña de Oroel, which dominates the landscape far far around. So visiting the Peña again was quite a nostalgic expericnce, I have to admit. And while normally a 30 year time span between visits makes the revisit a disappointment, because nothing is as you remember it, here this was not the case. The Peña is still the Peña, and the mountain still dominates the landscape as impressively as it did then. Looking for plants at its feet was almost a religious experience....
