RURAL CANARIAN INTRODUCTIONS


The Canarian Islands archipelago can tell us a lot of fascinating stories concerning the predominant diverse elemental influences on our unique home planet because mighty primeval forces have once created and are still transforming these islands in the Atlantic Ocean: volcanism, wind and erosion, rain and ocean waves, sunshine (while human beings firstly settled here only around 2,500 years ago). So in the centre of Tenerife you will find for instance a real huge volcanic caldera at the bottom of Mt. Teide (3,718 m) and when passing this bizarre landscape it really feels like being a tiny ant in a giants’ world. Here are some photographic impressions from my latest visit to Tenerife in March 2017 such allowing a rather more fragmentary glimpse on it, there is of course much more to discover.

Somewhere in the Teno mountains near Masca.

The volcanic pumice stone gate to nowhere.

Rocky view on the ocean near El Medano.

Graffiti scenery in the coastal semi-desert

I like travelling through the diverse realities and cultures of this world not only as a tourist. Nature, history of ancient sites or creative works are fascinating me however also abandoned places or ordinary things can be just magical and amazing. The multiple aspects and rich diversity of our blue planet need to be however nourished and protected.
