It reminds me a bit of Dunstansburgh Castle Keith. ;-)

Did you watch that programme on Giant tsunamis the other night? If ever the volcano on Santa Cruz (I think it was that island) suddenly causes a huge part of the rock to fall into the sea, then we're all doomed. Much of Tenerife will cease to exist, and the eastern seaboard of The States will be be badly affected as well. I thought of your photos when we were watching.

Cheers, Amelia

Thanks Amelia. Volcano causing large rocky mass to fall into the sea? That's what happened on Tenerife about 190,000 years ago (I read the tourist board). If you zoom out on the map right of the photo you will see that the northern part of the crater is missing, where Mt Teide later grew. I bet that made a bit of a splash!

Regards, Keith
