Lagoon of El Sopetón. Doñana National Park, Huelva


In Altamira, our primitive ancestors immortalized their prey. In
Doñana, when the wetland dries up and water and food become
scarce, the faunae, in the effort to survive, each year represent
the beauty of the struggle of life with the footprints of their
movements. Irrational and ephemeral art, robbed for immortality
by the photographic camera.

Seasonal lagoon of the Vera de Doñana drying out during the
summer. On the banks and in the muddy bed, the map of the
paths of wild boar, herons and storks in search of food has been
traced in the deepest zones.
