Baptized "Split-4","Split-5" a by Darkensilver Baptized "Split-4","Split-5" a by Darkensilver
The story of a twin "Hopper" barges, accompanied by a tug..Whose role is mainly about providing some earthfill of that tomb of memories, buried deep inside the Gibraltar detroit, with some "noble gravels"...

Jabal Tariq (Gibraltar) Detroit - Morocco/Spain

There is something undeniably sad about Jabal Tariq, to think that once a mighty man stood there and looked over the lands which would one day become Al Andalus. Today that same place still holds his name, but it is a symbol of defeat rather than glory.

Indeed...a mighty man, representing a mighty nation, with a mighty unbreakable faith..it's no longer the case my friend..
And it's truly sad, and becomes sadder once you cross the entrances of cities like Sevilla, Granada or Cordoba...
Anyway, even if it's about a symbol of defeat as you've said, but it stays an eternal stood up lesson for all next generations :)

Yes, figures like him certainly inspire people like me. Even though the Spanish try their all to hide it, we once ruled there, for 600 years we created a nation unlike any other seen in Europe before or since. If we did it once, if we could once be mighty men with unbreakable faith, then we can certainly be so again. I am optimistic my friend, despite all the great heartbreaks of these last few months in the Arab world, I am optimistic.

It's a great shot. I love all the wind mills in the background. I wish they would do more of that sort of thing around here. A friend of mine a while back tried to put a vertical wind machine in his back yard to power his "workshop" but the city made him take it down.

People here just seem to want to go and go and go spend money on faster cars and quicker ways of getting things done with as little work as possible and who cares about the ecological repercussions. Out west there are some wind machines and also some on big sky scrapers as well. That was a very novel idea.

Such a trend characterizes the most of mankind way of being, nowadays..When I read what you've written, I found it so similar to what happens in my surrounding :) 

Seems that mankind trends and way to evolve are universal !!
