Nature Is Awesome - And At This Place Here It's Beyond That!

in #photography2 years ago (edited)

All good things are wild and free. - Henry David Thoreau

You can tell, Henry!

There are few spots on the world map that may demonstrate their wilderness and freedom in a stronger way than this one: La Palma.

They lovingly call it La isla bonita (the beautiful island) due to the untouched beauty of its landscape and character.

The air is clean, flavored with the perfume of those impressive pine forests, and the streams that rise in the volcanic mountains carry the purest and most delicious water you will ever taste in your life.

From my today's point of view it's pretty illogical that I didn't like this place at all as a teenager.

But well, they say that everything comes to you at the right time.

In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary. - Aaron Rose


Thank you, La Palma.

La Palma carries a lot of great memories for me, especially thanks to the people who're part of them.

No matter what the future holds, there will be always room for short trips to La Palma. A little piece of my heart will be inseperably connected with this place forever.

Just look at those black congealed streams of lava blazing a trail down the hills, passing the lush green pine forests until they lead into the dark blue Ocean, while those huge white clouds fall over the massive mountain ridge maintaining the earth humid and fresh.

I really can't take my eyes off of you.



If there was a road to Heaven, then it'd probably look like this.

And if there was no road, then we could build a similar one.


Have a wild and free day, steemians!

Much love,

I couldn't agree more, Sergio!! It's our most valuable treasure, besides time :-)

And we live in a time that so litle people care about it that is scary and concerning 😭

“All good things are wild and free.” Well said! La Palma looks amazing, high up on my list. And I’m thinking of the Atacama desert, Patagonia and Andean mountains when I see “wild and free”.

You've got a pretty impressive list there.
Look at the Atacama Desert - I had no idea it existed. Thanks for the hint :-)

If you ever plan to travel to Canary Islands, make sure you have enough time to spend a couple of days on each island, especially including Tenerife and Lanzarote (plus the little neighbor La Graciosa). Only by visiting these two you'd cover multiple different climate zones, wildlife areas and landscapes.

Viva the wilderness! :-)

Hey @surfermarly,
Was für eine traumhafte Idille. Uns zieht es im Sommer wieder aufs Spanische Festland. Wir werden Sevilla und Alicante bereisen.
Es wird Zeit...


Spanisches Festland ist auch immer eine sehr gute Entscheidung :-) Ich fliege im Mai zum DTube Forum nach Barcelona und freu mich auch schon sehr drauf. Das lohnt sich schon allein wegen der Tapas :-D

WOW! This place is beautiful but I love Kumrat valley in Pakistan its beauty is so amazing love it it river its amazing valley I prefer you to visit Kumrat valley Pakistan

Oh wow, I just googled Kumrat valley Pakistan and you're right.
That's stunning!

Nothing is as beautiful as nature! These pictures are really stunning, thank you @surfermarly for sharing with us. Keep enjoying yourself.

You're welcome, Max! I wish I had taken a couple of more pictures, but I was busy with the family and didn't want to spend the valuable time with my phone though :-)

Yet, it's not been my last trip so there will more to come soon.

Have a great day!

Okay, thank you, and have a great day too Marlene.

Looks amazing... I haven't been yet, but recently moved to Tenerife!

Oh, nice! Then we are neighbors now :-) I lived on Tenerife for almost three years and moved to Lanzarote in 2016.

Enjoy your time on the Canaries - best place in the world!! :-)

Synchronicities busting out all over, I lived in Puerto de la cruz in Tenerife for two years, learned to fly in Gran Canaria and plan to go to Lanzarote soon, as it is suppose to have some of the best paragliding spots in the world !

Hey I am so jealous, I had the privilege to explore the island on my paraglider a couple of years ago, I know the video is a bit long, but you can always forward fast.

Puerto Naos - that's the bay where I spend half of my teenager years though :-) Nice one, thanks for sharing it with us!

I will never forget how clear the stars are at night, such a beautiful place !

You doing a fabulous job.....

Hope i can learn from you and be popular like you :)

Hehe, sweet! Thanks for the compliment and I hope I can inspire you to keep steeming like crazy :-))

Ich hab dich beim Interview mit dem Bitcoin-Informanten gesehen.
Eine ganz schön große kleine Steem Welt inzwischen. :-)
Liebe Grüße
Happy Surfing :-)

Ja, toll wie viele Leute nach dem Interview meinen Blog gefunden haben - da muss ich dem @denniskoray nochmal extra danken :-)
Wir sind in der Tat schon eine ganz schön große Family hier. Ich erinnere mich wie es im Sommer 2016 war - da hatte die Steem Facebook Gruppe 10 User und man kannte alle mit Namen. Jede Phase hat so ihren Reiz - aber per se ist es natürlich für die Plattform besser möglichst viele Nutzer zu haben, die auch entsprechend das Netzwerk in anderen Medien bekannt machen.

Happy Day & Danke fürs Vorbeischauen :-)
