Beautiful picture!Greetings, Tamás
Thank you Tamás! The basalt rose is quite impressing! It must have been a vast eruption to form such a sculpture. Greestings, May (Margit)
Orotava Valley is in Tenerife Island, not in La Palma Island....thanks
Juan, thanks! I know where it is, I have been there at least 15 times. I uploaded the photo to Tenerife, but somehow there must have been a mistake by Google. I corrected it a week ago, so I don't understand, why you object, on my screen, it's in Tenerife. Please have a look at the map beside the photo. Gracias y saludos, May :)
Hi, May. Listen: your pic is right over "Panoramio", perfect.
But, over "Google Earth", it does not appear in its place...there are some similar pics, but not the yours. The pic appears, but misplaced: look for the point 28º43,31 N - 17º46,53 W, in La Palma, very close my two ones (what are much worse than yours, jajaja!), and you will find it.
You are a good photographer, May. Congratulations.
I work for the Environmental Agency, here in La Palma, since 1985. You can let me know if you come here again....Bye.
Juan, thank you so much for the compliments and for taking the time. I don't know what happened to the picture by Panoramio. It's not the first time, that it's placed somewhere else. I am happy getting to know you, a person doing this important work for the environment. I was in La Palma just once, in 1990 or so. In case I come to La Palma, I'll let you know, many thanks. Greetings from snowy Switzerland, May
These rocks are formed by slow cooling of molten lava in the volcanic vents or boilers that fail to overflow or empty suddenly, as happens in situ cooling and therefore slower. The lava then cools, it solidifies, but the volume decreases so it cracks in the form of prisms of different types, usually hexagonal.
By the way, nice picture and a very good Gallery!!
Kind regards from Mallorca, Benjamin
