Spain - January 3rd, 2010

The peninsula reaching out from mainland Spain into the Mediterranean Sea in this orthorectified image is the Cap de Creus (meaning Cape of Crosses in Catalan). It is located at the far northeast of Catalonia, some 25 km south from the French border.

It is a peninsula of 190 square kilometres of an extraordinary landscape value; a very rocky dry region, with almost no trees, in contrast with a seaside rich in minuscule creeks of deep blue sea to anchor. Mountains are the last eminences of the Pyrenees which make the natural border between France and Spain.
