Photo tour, Lanzarote, Volcano island - 21-28th of April, 2018 (8 days)

Lanzarote, part of the Canary Islands, was literally devastated in the 18th century by spectacular eruptions in series. Other smaller eruptions took place in the 19th century, producing beautiful and young volcanic landscapes, somewhat similar to those of Iceland in places, but with a much more pleasant spring climate (20-25 ° C), and partially covered with a very interesting endemic flora. Men had to adapt to these upheavals to survive, inventing new and very original agricultural landscapes of great aesthetic value (vineyards). Excellent photographic opportunities in a pleasant spring tour, and the charm of Spanish hospitality.

NB: Petit groupe de 6 photographes (+ guide) sur ce voyage.

Photo tour description: Lanzarote, volcano island, April 2018 


Lanzarote, also known as the "Black Pearl of the Canaries" (due to the color of the volcanic ash that covers its soil in some areas, particularly the Geria wine region), or "the island of 300 volcanoes", is the more volcanic of the Canary Islands. Natural beauty and fragility of such an environment in the face of tourism and human development have been well understood, very early, by Cesar Manrique, a famous architect and environmentalist, island-born. He did everything possible to obtain the classification of the wildest areas, arranging also what should be for tourism with taste and respect for the natural environment (Jardin de Cactus, for example). One year after his death in 1993, the island received the status of "Unesco Biosphere Reserve". Yet some places are quite touristy places (east coast), but some others are very well preserved (south, west and north-west coast, Timanfaya park and surroundings), you will discover them with me.Lanzarote's natural landscapes and seascapes are spectacular, quite similar to those of Iceland in places, but enjoying a more pleasant climate, and partially covered with a very interesting endemic flora (euphorbiaceae, cacti) .The agricultural landscapes are also completely original, and rich of graphic possibilities, in color or B & W.

During this photo tour, we will learn or improve use of gradient filters, and wide-angle landscape photography. Stitched panoramic are also a great technique to translate vast and open places, often too cramped in a classic format..
