Between the Lines

Mist surrounds the jagged edges of flysch on the Basque Coast in Spain. Flysch alternates thin and coarse layers of sediment, making for a dramatic landscape.

But photographer Fran Llano writes that the view is more than just aesthetic, it's informational. "Layer by layer," he says, "the rocks offer a unique vision of the geological features of this area, reading a rocky book full of information."
