Here I present one of my most noted photos of the past.
I took this photo in a private reserve for cheetahs.
This is a revised version of the postprocessing.
I photographed the moon with a different lens and worked it in later, because the moon in the original photo is too small and the effect is lost.

*Castil de Tierra* - formed by nature!
The Bardenas Reales is a semi-desert natural region, or badlands, of some 42,000 hectares (100,000 acres) in southeast Navarre (Spain). The soils are made up of clay, chalk and sandstone and have been eroded by water and wind creating surprising shapes, canyons, plateaus, tabular structures and isolated hills, called cabezos. Bardenas lacks urban areas, vegetation is scarce and the many streams that cross the territory have a markedly seasonal flow, staying dry most of the year.

Nature and Bird Photography (Wildlife) in the Aiguamolls with Carlos Santero
The Aiguamolls are nature reserves that protect areas of important coastal marshland in the Empordà.
Cinereous vulture - Buitre Negro
This bird is on the red list of threadened species
Its global population is estimated to number 7,800-10,500 pairs, roughly equating to 15,600-21,000 mature individuals. This consists of 2,300-2,500 pairs in Europe (BirdLife International 2004, Anon. 2004) and 5,500-8,000 pairs in Asia (Anon. 2004). The population in Korea has been estimated at c.50-10,000 wintering individuals (Brazil 2009). The estimate roughly equates to 23,400-31,500 individuals. Trend Justification: Although the European population is increasing, the much larger Asian population appears to be in decline. Overall, a slow to moderate and on-going decline is suspected. This picture was taken during my 2 days adventure in Buseu a little lost village in the spanish pyrenees.
Jordi Canut has a project to protect the nature and the vultures and eagles in this region.
