Grass in the Desert

The landscape in The Timanfaya National Park (Spanish: Parque Nacional de Timanfaya) on the island of Lanzarote has been compared to the surface of Mars. However, from time to time you do see some hardy plants cropping up. But since you are not allowed to walk around on your own, most photos have to be shot through the windows of the coaches – usually with less than satisfactory results. However, sometimes one is lucky, and with a little work one can get quite acceptable pictures (I think …).

  1. Reminds me the sand hills that surrounded the little town in Texas where I grew up. Great shot for the day, Rune, as always!! Hope your week is going well!!


  2. Oh yes, this photo turned out very well! I like the composition, the way the wind has created circles around the grass, the shadows, the texture…everything about this photo.


  3. Looks rather uninhibited by life except for the plant. Wonder what causes the land to look so empty? — barbara
