Abstract mountain beauty and ancient rock shapes. // Coves Roges: this is what the red-brown rocks and caves are called, which are located on the outskirts of the small town of Gata de Gorgos. About the abstract effect of the eroded rocks in a remote and enchanting place. Nature photography in Alicante province in Spain.
The river bed of the Río Gorgos enchants with its unique rock formations, vertical rock faces and caves. The river bed is dry most of the year. However, on days with heavy rainfall, a wild river arises in this place which gives the landscape its shape. Impressive rock formations have been created over thousands of years by erosion and the power of the flowing water. The color of the rock varies from orange to reddish-brown.
In the bright sunlight, the water-polished rocks look like sculptures or paintings. Like artworks that Mother Nature has created over long periods of time. In my opinion it is a fascinating place, reminiscent of the fabulous imagery of fairy tales and myths.
Inspired by the shapes and colors of the rocks, I dedicated a photo series to the Coves Roges. It is designed to show the abstract beauty of rocks, but also the continuous change in nature. In addition, the steep walls also bear the marks of climbing. For example, some climbing hooks can be found and the names of the climbing routes have been painted on the lower part of the rocks. Reddish-brown rock bearing the marks of weathering and human activity gives the Coves Roges a very special magic.
