Dominating Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands, is the semi-dormant volcano, Mount Teide.
At just over 12,000ft high, the conical summit is nominally visible from all over the island, but due to prevalent low lying cloud during the week in Febraury 2017 that Liz and I stayed on Tenerife, we rarely got to see it from our sea level resort on the south coast.
No big issue though, as somewhat steep and twisty roads took us in our little hire car up through the cloud and mist of the Forestal cloud pine reserve to arrive in the clear, clean, crisp and cold air of the Teide National Park.
We had no problem in seeing the summit of Mount Teide from up here, the only issue we had was that there were so many amazing views to choose from that we had to stop every few yards to admire and photograph them all!
I shot this particular panoramic collage at the Mirador llano de Ucanca viewpoint, with the impressive Roques de Garcia in the foregound and the peak of Mount Teide dominating the horizon.
Quite an amazing place!
