Tabernas Turbidites and Cowboys

I always wanted to visit Tabernas in Andalucia and see the deepwater turbidites.  And also the cowboys.  For a week last week we drove around the ramblas and inspected the world class outcrops.  Many thanks to my colleagues and I dedicate these images to all those in Car 5.  May you always be strapped up and your sense of humour never leave you :-)

And here are the outcrops and the cowboy.  I include the perro who is  a contemporary Spanish native.


Looks marginal to me - the devil is in the architecture.

Tabernas Europe's only desert world class mostly confined tubidite systems.

Modern cowboys have PDAs and still shoot.
