Fire Mountains 2

By franken
Another shot of some of the volcanoes in Lanzarote. This one was taken a bit later than the previous upload. Not long after this was taken there was a heavy downpour that lasted for about 10 minutes.

Something I didn't know was the pointy volcanoes are newer than the less pointy ones as they have not settled for so long. The one in the foreground would be an older one.

Fascinating place to visit.

Interesting picture & description. I like the contrast between the red sand & green plain.
I have never been to Lanzarote, but visited Mt Teide(?) on Tenerife once. Fascinating place which I would like to explore further, (although I didn't like the rest of the island).

I am not too sure I would fancy living so close to some of these forbidding looking places Ken.I would always be watching to see if the were going to come ' alive '. Good landscape.
