The view southwards from Loreto along the Sierrra de la Giganta (Mountains of the Giants) in the Bahia de Loreto National Park, the Baja Peninsula and the Sea of Cortez, Mexico.
With such sparse vegetation and the exposed geology, the sense of perspective, space and geological time is greatly enhanced. In the foreground is an elephant tree, one of the many plants perfectly adapted to surviving the extremely arid conditions prevalent in Baja. Standing water was virtually non-existent when I was there but the eroded streambeds created by the brief seasonal flash flooding were clearly evident.
