The story behind the image
It’s very likely that you will travel to the island of Tenerife, Spain, for awesome beach vacations. As tempting as it may be, please consider not just relaxing at the beach or hotel pool, but do yourself a favor and visit the Teide National Park in the center of the island as well. Its major attraction is the giant active vulcano that gave the National Park its name, the Pico del Teide. However, the entrie national park reminded me of Arizona or Utah. A rough, quickly changing landscape that shows some scrub and all shades of yellow, brown and red sand.
I shot this photo from the viewpoint La Ruleta near the official Visitor Center. As this location is situated more than 2,000 meters above sea level, take your time as it can be exhausting to climb up to the various viewpoints nearby.
