Life From Lava Lanzarote

Life From Lava Lanzarote
The Shot

This was taken looking towards the crater Montana Cuervo near Masdache, Lanzarote. About a third of the surface area of Lanzarote comprises recent Volcanoes and Lava flows which are only between 200 and 300 years old. Life is only just starting to come back to these areas. This was a great blue sky day.

The picture was taken with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom at 10mm. Taken handheld.
