La Palma island - part two
Lens: Tamron 17-50 & DA55-300 Camera: K-5 IIs Photo Location: La Palma

The island is an oasis of tranquility, no mass tourism, disco's or huge resorts to be seen. Its natural beauty is overwhelming, people work hard improving the infrastructure and prices are still reasonable (and in euros so easy to assess). You hve to help yourself to all of this and sometimes the nice spots are hard to locate.

1. The crater of the San Antonio vulcano


2. The beautiful Plaza Glorieta in Las Manchas which resembles in part Gaudi's Parc Gruel in Barcelona


3.


4. The salt basins and lighthouses of Faro de Fuencaliente at the southernmost tip of the island formed by recent volcanic activity.


5.


6. A German glas artist at work in the town of Los Llanos


7. A characteristic balcony in Los Llanos, freshly painted like nearly all houses


8. The awesome views off the steep volcanic slopes towards the Atlantic Ocean
