Impressions of



All images of this gallery were taken between April 29 and May 10 2012 on Lanzarote (Canary Islands) at the Los Volcanes Nature Park and Timanfaya National Park, as well as at and near the Playa Blanca beach resort. For artistic reasons (I believe that photos should speak for themselves) no captions are displayed together with the images, but by holding your mouse over the thumbnails for a second you should get a brief title caption displayed as a popup-tooltip.
All images were taken with a Sony HX9V compact camera (which comprises a 24-384mm optical zoom range (in 35mm equivalent)).
