Juan says:

The Palentina Mountain is land of abandoned coal mines. The dumps are invaded by small glimpses of plant life, which together with the erosion of water, makes nature mold true unreal and wonderful landscapes. The guarantee of photographic success of this place is achieved in autumn and especially after it has rained, making the coal more black, resulting in a more attractive contrast with the autumn colors.
