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.

Fiskere Lanzarote-27696

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

Timanfaya-28540

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.

Yaiza-28663

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.
