The landscape surrounding Embalse Zahara-El Gastor, a lake in the Cadiz Province in the region of Andalusia, Spain, features breathtaking beauty. The piercing blue of the lake against the rugged brown and green of the mountain behind make every view look like a picture-perfect postcard.
This lake has a dam at one end of it, which helps control the water level in the lake and keeps the flow of water constant. The dam also helps fill a water reservoir in the region, which supplies the region with water all year round.
The Province of Cadiz is known for its natural beauty and for areas of untouched and undisturbed landscape. The coast is lined by ports but the countryside plays host to many driving travelers visiting region for recreation, and for the sights such as this lake and surrounding scenery.
This is an area of Spain that many tourists come to every year, as the Province of Cadiz has some fabulous beaches for sun worshippers, and some scenic mountain trails for people searching for more adventure in their getaway. This shot here shows just how much the area can offer for everyone, especially when the sun is shining.
