Canary Islands are full of good viewing locations.
A volcanic archipelago with high mountains where the horizon is the ocean itself has to bring many options!
Usually is El Teide (3.718 meters above sea level) where usually the pictures are taken from, but if you can see many places from its summit, then the opposite view should also be possible… And here we have one of them.
A fantastic sunrise view of El Teide from El Hierro island, one of the most recent volanic activity.
In the village of La Almolda, next to the famous spanish city of Zaragoza, there is an ancient monastery on top an small hill (590 meters above sea level), with some of the greatest short-sight views of the Pyrenees.
From left to right, an overall view of National Park Posts Maladeta, starting with Cotiella peak, then Posets, Perdiguero, and the King of the Pyrenees, Aneto.
Beautiful image here from Charles, on a fantastic clear day in Canary Islands!
As the author says: “From the summit of Gran Canaria it is frequent to see Tenerife and the Teide (3718 m high). Sometimes when the visibility is very good, one can distinguish more details and colors.
In the pictures, Tenerife islands seems to fly, because the visibility below an inversion layer is strongly reduced.
In a clear day in Sierra Nevada, Spain, enjoying the recent snow, I noticed something rising over the horizon.
A very iconic mountain, La Sagra, was looking at us from 120 kilometers away. It is an isolated mountain with more than 2.ooo meters and a clear view over the rest of the area. Really a good sighting and also a visit worth it!
