Description We were on a photo tour, driving down the Baja peninsula, when the late afternoon light started getting really good. We were nowhere near our destination, so we asked the driver to pull over. We stayed at this 'location' for more than 2 hours, as the sun went down. Nature's artwork was incredible! So, I cannot say exactly where this silhouette was taken, only that it was somewhere along the side of the road in the Baja Peninsula in Mexico...... ..... ..... ..... .....The Baja California peninsula (English: Lower California), is a peninsula in northwestern Mexico. Its land mass separates the Pacific Ocean from the Gulf of California. The Peninsula extends 1,247 kilometres (775 mi) from Mexicali, Baja California in the north to Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur in the south...... ..... ..... ..... .....The Baja California peninsula was once a part of the North American Plate, the tectonic plate of which mainland Mexico remains a part. About 12 to 15 million years ago the East Pacific Rise began cutting into the margin of the North American Plate, initiating the separation of the peninsula from it. Spreading within the Gulf of California consists of short oblique rifts or ridge segments connected by long northwest trending transform faults, which together comprise the Gulf of California Rift Zone. The north end of the rift zone is located in the Brawley seismic zone in the Salton Sea basin between the Cerro Prieto Fault and the San Andreas Fault. The Baja California peninsula is now part of the Pacific Plate and is moving with it away from the East Pacific Rise in a north northwestward direction. Along the coast north of Santa Rosalia, Baja California Sur is a prominent volcanic activity area. ***** ***** ***** *****If you are interested in other sizes, greeting cards, or prints on acrylic or metal, please check out our website at: http://alan-and-marcia-socolik.artistwebsites.com/
