Rio Tinto, Spain

The Tintillo River in Andalusia, Spain is red in colour due to the intense mining activity in the region. It’s waters are highly acidic as a result of pollution from heavy metals such as iron and copper as well as sulphur dioxide emissions. It is a bizarre landscape – grotesque but in a perverse way also very beautiful.
