Daily photo - Lanzarote - Land of Volcanoes
Today I would like to share panorama photo I took more than 2 years ago on island of Lanzarote (Canary Islands). Below panorama shows Timanfaya National Park, located in southern part of the island. Many of the volcanoes in the park are still active, despite last big eruptions took place in 19th century, and in fact whole park is very geologically active. Due to this activity just a few centimeters under the ground temperature reaches 100 °C. And at about 10 meters it's already 600 degrees! Walking there is like walking on a ticking bomb. But the views are extraordinary!
After reading above you shouldn't be surprised to learn that alternative name of the park is Fire Mountains (Montañas del Fuego).
BTW make sure to click on the photo to view it in large size as it looks much better this way!
