Abstract image of the south coast of Tenerife at night, Canary Islands

To delete, or not to delete - that is the question.

At least, that was the question facing me as I looked at the orange mess on my camera's monitor after capturing the scene that led to this rather unusual nightscape of the south coast of Tenerife.

The Los Gigantes cliffs and coastline from Punta de Teno on the northwest coast of Tenerife in the Canary Islands The Los Gigantes cliffs and coastline from Punta de Teno on the northwest coast of Tenerife in the Canary Islands

Hard to get to, but well worth the effort.

This is the view from Punta de Teno, right on the northwestern tip of Tenerife in the Canary Islands.

The two images were taken just a few minutes apart, one just before sunset and the other just after.

What a difference a few minutes can make!

The Teno mountains shrouded in mist on the northwest coast of Tenerife in the Canary Islands

Tenerife, in the Canary islands, is normally associated with holiday resorts and sun.

But Liz and I found a different, and much more appealing, side to the island on one of our exploratory drives up through the Teno Mountains on the northwestern coast.

Volcanic rock beach near Los Abrigos on the south coast of Tenerife in the Canary Islands Porous volcanic rock on the beach near Los Abrigos on the south coast of Tenerife in the Canary Islands

As well as being a nice, warm place to go on holiday, Tenerife is fascinating from a geological point of view, with a somewhat turbulent volcanic history to say the least!

Just a short walk from where Liz and I were staying on the south coast we came across this small bay, covered in beautifully weathered porous volcanic rocks.

Time for a photo or two I think!

Panoramic image showing the volcano Mount Teide on Tenerife in the Canary Islands

Despite a persistent layer of thin low cloud there was no way that Liz and I were going to miss seeing Mount Teide in all its splendour during our week's stay on Tenerife in the Canary Islands last month.

So some high altitude excursions in our hire car were called for.

Panoramic image showing the volcanic landscape of La Gomera in the Canary Islands

I'm glad the coach driver on our day to trip to La Gomera, the second smallest of the lovely Canary Islands, knew what he was doing, as the roads through the volcanic interior of the island were challenging to say the least!

Mind you, with stunning overlooks like this one to the north of the island to be enjoyed and photographed, a white knuckle ride was a small price to pay!

One of the things I was really looking forward to during Liz's and my February trip to Tenerife was heading up to the Teide National Park surrounding the volcano Mount Teide in the centre of the island, in order to enjoy seeing and photographing the dark night sky.

And I wasn't disappointed!

This was one of my 'must get' views that I had listed to take during my wife Liz's and my week long winter break on Tenerife, and conditions couldn't have been better.

Captured as a time lapse video covering sunset and twilight, we had an unexpected bonus towards the end of the shoot.

Time lapse video showing dramatic swirling clouds seen from above from the Teide National Park, Tenerife, Canary Islands

Wow!

Just back for a week on Tenerife in the Canary Island with some amazing photos and time lapse clips to share.

Liz and I found that, for most of the week, the best scenery and weather was to be found at high altitude in the Teide National Park, which is where I shot this time lapse video from, looking down on the tops of the swirling clouds below us.

There's not many opportunities to enjoy an afternoon by the seaside during January in North Wales, so when a sunny day arrived my wife Liz and I took full advantage.

This is the beach at Rhosneigr on the Isle of Anglesey, and we weren't the only ones out braving the cold.
