I had travelled to Tenerife back in 2019 to photograph the northern coastline. After a change of heart, I decided to stay inland and photograph the volcanic landscapes around Mount Teide, and I absolutely loved it. I could walk almost everywhere and photograph whatever I wanted – I was in my element.
Back home, I looked at the other Canary Islands, and Lanzarote looked promising. Sadly, the pandemic struck.
Fast forward, and recently I found myself on the island of Lanzarote. I had a whole week available, and my hopes were running high. Sadly, although most of the island offers decent landscape photography, Timanfaya National Park (the main reason for my visit) was very disappointing.
I paid my €12 ticket at the park entrance and drove off, only to be faced with a long queue of cars around the bend. One hour and ten minutes later, I managed to park in the dedicated area, only to discover that I was not allowed to walk anywhere. You must get on the dedicated buses that take you around the area.
I tried the next available spot, which is famous for the camels. Again, the only access was by riding a camel.
I was gutted. I had to rearrange my itinerary completely. It was a disappointment but a sweet one because the rest of the island did not let me down, nor did the local cuisine.
