Gibraltar from Algeciras

Algeciras, Spain, 1962

The iconic image of Gibraltar as a pyramidal mass of rock is available only from a boat in the Straits of Gibraltar. From Algeciras, Spain, looking across the broad bay on a hazy summer's day, it's like a mirage, a massive island of rock summoned from somewhere beyond the horizon by a trick of the light, hovering just above the water.
