Show us... Lanzarote, Spain

#5 Salinas de Janubio at sunset



#6 Salinas de Janubio

#12 La Graciosa before the sun sets (panorama from 18 images)



#13 Heading home

1 and 2 are wonderful with the whole set holding together nicely. #1 - so many layers make this very appealing. #2 - the composition is wonderful and the people add a great bit to the image, showing the scale and providing interest.

Lovely set Harald! Number 8, 9 and 12 jump out for me. What wonderful places you go to!

I love number 12 with the walker! For me, my fave and the best here!

Fantastic work!

Harald; from one Coast to another Coast (sorry, I couldn't help myself) As one who thought your 2 prior Coasts excelled in everyway and thoroughly enjoyed them. I'm not sure this set raises to their level. I did like many of the photos
and I do envy your island hoping

Oh yes, stitching 18 images together is a masterful feat. "Hat Tip" at least to me

All the best_______Josef

Great work Harald, although i liked the previous series more. Did you make photos of Timanfaya? I was at Lanzarote many years ago, we didn't even have kids then, but it left a big impression. TFS

Great series Harald, I especially like the nightshots allthough a few persons more here or there might have livened things up a bit. And you left the best for last (imo)

Harald, those night shots look so forlorn and deserted. Presumably it was 'off-season". Nevertheless, very interesting and photogenic images as captured and presented by you.
TFS.

Smart move to use B/W for your fine images, Addy!

The Timanfaya National Park (which is an impressive showcase for a landscape formed by volcanic eruptions only recently) can only be visited by a bus tour which carries the tourists along a loop road which was built in 1950 for the visit of Spain's dictator Generalissimo Franco. The tour buses have tinted (blue) windows. That's the reason why the following images are somehow precarious in terms of color - with the exception of the panorama restaurant they are taken from inside the bus.

#33 Cesar Manrique's panorama restaurant in the Timanfaya National Park



#34 Timanfaya



#35 Timanfaya



#36 Timanfaya



#37 Timanfaya and the sea
