An Island in the Sun

Playa Blanca strand-5542

It has been a bit quiet around here, but there are reasons. We have among other things spent some time on an Island in the Sun, in this case Lanzarote in Spain. Although sunshine and warmth dominate such trips, there are more than beaches and sand to be found on Lanzarote. Always nice for a hobby photographer.

Local fishermen brought the catch of the day to the shore for cleaning and gutting. More than one photographer was interested in this procedure …


Lanzarote is most famous for its many volcanoes. There are more than a hundred of them with even more craters. Luckily most of them are extinct and the last eruption was in 1824. This moon-like landscape is from the national-park Parque Nacional de Timanfaya. Once seen – never forgotten.


But there are also many other beautiful and quiet spots. This is from the village of Yaiza. It has several times been chosen as the prettiest village in Spain.

And of course there were sunsets …

Have a nice week!

  1. Aaaah, that’s where you’ve been hiding 😀
    And you picked a wonderful place for that.
    I love volcano landscapes and the picture
    of the fishermen is very interesting. Lots
    to see in it 😀
    Looking forward to seeing more of your
    wonderful trip including gorgeous sunsets 🙂
    Have a great week!

    PS: I can’t do anything with my mobile, don’t
    have the possibility to get the pictures off
    onto the computer. I just have to wait until
    the time and my purse are ready :\

  2. I was wondering where you were! Beautiful photos as always, the island looks like a great place to relax. Love the volcano shot, especially as it was unexpected.


  3. This moon-like landscape is my favorite view . The wild side of a place is always the most attractive to my eyes .Hope you had good time and enjoyed a good rest and lot of discoveries !


  4. Who knew that people from Norway went all the way to Lanzarote to look at mountains? Terrific variety of landscapes in a relatively small island.


  5. Så det er der du har vært… 😉 Jeg simpelthen elsker det 3. bildet i serien… får liksom ikke nok av slike formasjoner og farger,- har aldri vært på Lanzarote, men nå fristet det med et besøk dit!
    Fortsatt fin uke til deg, Rune 🙂


  6. Jeg har aldrig været på Lanzarote – eller nogen andre spanske øer.
    Men kunne godt tænke mig det…. Dine fotos viser ihvertfald et spændende sted.
    Men heldigvis skal jeg også snart et spændende sted hen – hvor der er varmt…. Men der dukker nok fotos op derfra på min blog senere 🙂

  7. A beautiful series, Rune. The national park scene is amazing, and I very much like all the others, too.
    Thank you for your recent visits to my blog.


  8. Har du sett noe så vakkert, et lanskap av gull! Kjempenydelig bilde! Og de andre også, flott solnedgang! Det er kanskje ikke så mye sol i Bergen? Her i Oslo har vi hatt en nydelig vår! Med sol ja. Ønsker dere får litt sol også!
    Men Lanzarote virker spennende..
    God helg til deg! 🙂


  9. Flotte bilder som ser veldig innbydende ut. Her snør det akkurat nå og jeg har en sterk trang til å rømme landet! Ha en fortsatt fin uke!



  10. My favorite is the stone work with fisherman. Always attracted to the naturalness of stone in landscaping and art. I guess stonework in landscaping is art! Nice post — barbara


  11. Wonderful pictures of your holidays!
    Looks like you had a lot to enjoy 🙂
    Love the volcano landscape with
    all it’s shadows 🙂
    Have a great day
