Like the rest of Spain, the region of Aragon has suffered a severe drought for decades. This is often compared with California. Each year there is only a fraction of the water available for a "normal" growing season. This draught often causes wildfires leading to further loss in the economy. Facing against this uphill battle, the resilient Spanish farmers have continued their struggle to survive. This series of images are taken over 3000 feet in the air from a small plane. The striking and amazingly strange abstract patterns of farming fields are a reflection of humanity’s impact on the earth.
