Lanzarote VI – Arts, Culture & Tourism

 Volcanoes 1:

Lanzarote is an island of volcanoes, and nothing excites me more than to photograph the planet in its most raw and primal state. It makes me passionate about life.

 A daily park admission fee allows you to drive to a lookout where there is a restaurant, craft shop, and a 1-hour slow-moving bus ride through a most spectacular volcanic setting.

As a photographer, a bus tour is not my idea of a good time. However, with millions of tourists and sustainable tourism in mind, there was no alternative. I was happy to make the best of it. 

Photographing through a window with reflections wasn’t easy but I did my best. In this image we see the road we are travelling on and the Atlantic Ocean in the background.

Patches of light continuously shifted throughout the entire landscape; so exciting!

Sometimes the bus stopped to give passengers a close-up insight into the various types and formations of lava. 

While leaning over Rita’s lap and pushing my lens up against the window, I managed to get some reflection-free images. One could feel the dripping lava as it cooled.
