Mystic Island Lanzarote

Beautiful sunset location at El Golfo / Lanzarote

“One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them, one ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them. In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.”

When walking through the volcanic landscape of the Timanfaya National Park this passage out of “The Lord of the Rings” often comes to my mind. At its shores, where the rivers of lava have been halted by the sea a unreal place with extreme contrasts and bizarre shapes arose. During hundreds of years wind and sea formed, modeled the cliffs emerging from the sea like as if by a divine curse petrified warriors. Lined up, standing against the relentless chisel of the surf they defend their kingdom. A mystical air surrounds every rock, breathes through every cave and stone arch washed out by the sea, is present in every rock pool the outgoing tide leaves behind. And as the setting sun vanishes behind the horizon, the soul keeps its breath and time stands still for a moment.

  1. Bravo Dani 🙂 Fantastisch wie Du es jedesmal wieder schaffst, den etwas anderen Zauber Lanzarotes in Deinen Bildern und Texten heraufzubeschwören. Einen Zauber, den man in keinem Reiseführer findet. Vielen Dank für die Inspiration!

    Bravo Dani 🙂 It’s absolutely amazing how you always manage to evoke the very special magic of Lanzarote in your pics and texts. A magic you will not find in any tourist guide. Thanks for the inspiration!
