Snowmelt in the mountains
Category: Outdoor Scenes
Photo and caption by Andrés Miguel Domínguez
This picture was taken in Spain (Parque natural "Sierra de Grazalema"). In meadows where cattle during heavy rains, many small gaps are formed. These ponds raised slightly eutrophic freshwater algae. These algae live with herbaceous plants and when the lakes freeze very attractive compositions are created. Here we appreciate frozen bubbles and lines formed on thawing. This occurs when the temperature rises past dawn. I used macro lens because this wild geranium leaf (Erodium sp.) is very small.
Location: Parque natural "Sierra de Grazalema", Grazalema, Cádiz (Spain)
