FUN BREAK: Spanish photographer ‘set the sky on fire’ beneath mine
Spanish photographer Tomas Bogoñez is getting a lot of press these days as the talented artist unveiled his latest work: images of a tornado of fire in the popular mining zone by the Tinto river, in the country’s Southwest.
Bogoñez created the stunning images by photographing the reflection of the Tinto River flowing through the historic mining zone. Then he rotated the pictures to create the illusion of a twister with fiery bands.
The region along the Tinto River has been mined for copper, silver and gold for centuries, making the water very acidic. The river gets its dynamic red hue from the dissolved iron.
