From our base at Playa de Santiago on the sunny south side of the island we take local buses inland and up the mountain so we can walk back down on the many old trails that criss cross the island.

Now, don't kick me for saying this....Was the landscape really that dark? It kinda looks a bit foreboding on my screen. I know that I'm probably too much in love with bright colours, but this does look a bit underexposed. Was it like this "In the flesh?"

@CElliottUK: I exposed for the sky as I have an antipathy of burnt out clouds, and then lightened the landscape, although perhaps not quite enough. It is dark volcanic rock though.

Very brooding, like Lancashire's moors.

Black earth that speak of its origin ... Fertile feeding delicious palms ... The mountains in the background protecting them from the winds that hit these places always so beautiful and wild. A wonderful image friend... Best regards., Adela
