Dry Reeds on Delta de L'Ebre Beach, Tarragona, Catalonia, Spain

Reed root abstraction on Delta de l' Ebre beach, Tarragona, Catalonia, Spain [enlarge]

Sometimes an abstraction can be created out of the most unusual things. It is all in your head or on many occasions inside mother nature's head which is more complex and experienced. Any odd root, next to the soil where it is supposed to grow is no big deal but what if we put it upside down against a seascape? It is very common to find dry reeds along L'Illa de Buda beach, Deltebre, Tarragona but this sort of Martian scene, is in fact part of a natural park, 320 km² of wetland on the Mediterranean coast which is a paradise for birds and well known for its rice crops, its paellas and the history behind agricultural villages near Ebro river mouth.


  1. Nice photo! This looks like a very big and strange insect!

  2. Wow, what a great photo! That's not something we always see at a beach!

  3. A Nature made sculpture. It compels you to try and make sense of it.

  4. It looks like some kind of wild creature! Great find.
