Artist's Description

Imagine we are standing on the edge of this lava flow on the western side of the main crater! The gouged ground in front of us looks like freshly ploughed earth, but it is solidified lava, hard and razor sharp – you’ll rip your sandals or sports shoes if you try walking over that!!

This lava flow comes from a crater on the Pico Viejo (Old Peak, 3,134 m), and you can just spot the Pico Teide above and beyond. Those white spots up there are snow.

El Teide is the highest Spanish mountain, located on the Canary Island of Tenerife. With its highest peak at 3,718 metres above sea level it is a quite amazing phenomenon – within a relatively short drive from beach hotels to the peak. From its base it is also the third highest active volcano in the world, having last erupted in 1909.

Location: El Teide National Park, Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain.
Nikon D70, Sigma 18-200mm. 40mm, 1/120s, f/10. ISO 200. Captured in RAW.

The El Teide National park is a protected conservation area and the summit has permit-access only to limit the additional erosion by visitors. It has been a World Heritage Site since 2007.
