In 1730, on the Spanish island of Lanzarote in the Atlantic Ocean a series of volcanic eruptions that lasted for six years changed what was a quiet, agricultural landscape. Red hot magma spewed, ash rained and lava fields covered a quarter of the island. Today, the Parque Nacional Timanfaya is dedicated to preserving that geological phonemena. These photographs are a result of a tour into the interior of the park and on the approach to the basalt fields.
