Photo Challenge: Adventure!

Photo Challenge: Adventure!

“This week, share a photo that says “adventure.” It could be an image of someone setting off on an epic journey, a photo you took on an adventure of your own, or something more metaphoric that represents a personal or psychological adventure. We’re excited to see where you’ll take us!”

These photos are from my visit to the island of Tenerife in 2000. I took them with a camera I bought for just a few pounds. Every photo has a vignette effect which is not an instagram filter, it’s the camera!

One morning I climbed this steep road in my little hire car seeking adventure. I like the way this view invites you to find out what’s around the corner.

After turning many corners I took this photo of the rocky landscape I found.

From the high caldera, which is a massive volcano crater, I took the cable car to an area near the top of Mount Teide, the highest peak on Tenerife and in Spain, rising from the caldera. There is a walking path which you can just about see below in this photo but that takes about 5 hours to walk up, so I chickened out of that bit of adventure!

At about 3700 mtrs the air is quite thin, which is intoxicating in itself. From up here we can see far across the island as well as a couple of smaller canary isles near the horizon.

It felt to me like high adventure up there above the clouds. I hope you like the photos! 🙂

Teide
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mount Teide (Spanish: Pico del Teide, IPA: [ˈpiko ðel ˈteiðe], “Teide Peak”) is a volcano on Tenerife in the Canary Islands. Its 3,718-metre (12,198 ft) summit is the highest point in Spain and the highest point above sea level in the islands of the Atlantic. At 7,500 m (24,600 ft) from its base on the ocean floor, it is the third highest volcano on a volcanic ocean island in the world after Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa in Hawaii.[2]
