Geology meets Technology 2011
This is truly big, macro engineering, or maybe terra forming. I´m not sure if the massive tube takes the stuff up and then deposits it below or the other way around. This you see on the trip down to El Altet (Alicante Airport). The crane gives some idea of the size of this insallation. It´s not far in the background, almost on top of the installation (ongoing work).
This part of the region is desert,desert and desert, no-one lives here, so excavation here is relentless but it´s changing the shape of the land and you notice it on the flight approach when flying in from northern Europe.
I used the Glamour Glow filter for this shot in Color Efex Pro, but it´s not unlike the real thing, depending of the time of the year.
