The story behind this image

The volcanic lava landscapes of the Teide National Park on Tenerife in the Canary Islands are just an other-worldy sensory wonderland, and you could be forgiven for thinking you'd landed on Mars as you emerge from the clouds into the huge caldera of the ancient Las Canadas volcano.

So it's no surprise that my wife Liz and I spent a significant part of our week long winter break on Tenerife exploring and photographing in this unique environment.

There are a number of famous volcanic rock formations dotted around the park, and one of the most well known and heavily photographed is 'Cinderella's Shoe', or 'Queen's Shoe', pictured here.

This eye catching eroded rock sculpture is just a short hike from one of the many stopping places provided throughout the Teide National Park, so it was the pleasant work of only a few minutes to capture this photo.
