Skywatch Friday

lava fields (click to enlarge)

Welcome to my world on the island of Tenerife, in the Canary Islands.

Here is a photo of lava fields taken on June 2, 2009 while driving in the caldera of the Teide volcano, Spain's highest mountain (3,718 m). At this altitude the sky is an intense blue, the sun is strong and the air is clear.
Below are more photos and details of the trip that day.
