Las Machotas, dry-stone wall

Las Machotas, dry-stone wall
Constructed high in the Sierra de Guadarrama and now in ruins. I like the stone shapes in these walls just as I love the same in the drystone walls of upland Britain!
Best on 'z'

Dry-stone-walls are really very difficult to construct. This one is very nice and the light makes some interesting patterns. Well seen and presented.

Amazing how they fitted the different stones! Building dry- stone walls is an art very few people master these days.

Wow! Thats amazingly intricate work..............it must be pretty slow going trying to match up the stones and fit them together as well as this..!!

That was the joy of my much missed Nokia N95 cameraphone, Keith. Always a far better camera that a phone! It took in detail very well!

As I mentioned to Fred, above; 'Probably sometime after the 16th century and perhaps renovated continuously until the last century' But I don't really know.
Thank you Erich!

lovely to witness the wit of a fabulous artwork. Stone walls must ensure that many who witness them are astounded by the construction and accuracy employed. Makes me think how much I've missed out on not having gone through the learning process and gained a few calluses that those workers must have acquired.
This is good photography, gives viewers something to think about.

Thanks Andy
