Aerial Photographs of the so called “mar del plástico” – greenhouse farming at the region of Almeria (Andalusia, Southern Spain). The patterns in the landscape are greenhouses and plastic foils used for cultivation of fruits and vegetables. It’s the biggest zone worldwide for cultivation underneath plastic foils (about 350 km²). Each year millions of tons of fruits and vegetables are exported. More than the half of the harvest goes to Germany and other western european countries.
