Artist's Description

Taken near the upper cable car station (3,555m) on El Teide looking down over the lava flows and pumice stone into the caldera or crater below (2,355m).

El Teide mountain is approx. 3,718 m above sea level and the highest Spanish mountain. It is an active though dormant volcano.

It was a gorgeous March day with amazing views but freezing cold up there. It actually snowed a few hours later. It is an amazing experience travelling from the hotel at sea level to around 3,555 m in just a couple of hours! I will upload a view down to the sea hopefully one of these days.

I liked the contrast between the dark lava and the light pumice as well as the soft clouds against the barren background.

Location: El Teide, upper Cable car station (approx. 3,555m above sea level) , Tenerife, Canary Islands. Spain.
Nikon D200, Sigma 18-200mm.
