Island of Enmedio,Wetlands of El Odiel, Huelva



Observed from the air… it looks like a fallen tree, enormous, with
a short, thick trunk forming the central section of tombs, from
which four mighty branches extend, contiguous in their origins
but which then extend through successive bifurcations until
becoming lost from sight, forming… a leafy crown in which life
and death are confused.*

José Saramago
