we went to TimanfayaNational Park on Christmas day. It was open, but the day was overcast. I am told we've missed a lot because the light didn't allow to appreciate the colors in volcanoes. True, most of the photos turned up in different shades of black (almost like in the land of Death on Terry Pratchett's books). Some of them do show some of the true colors, and this is one of them. Fantastic place.

they also demonstrated "burning bush" effect - throwing a bundle of sticks into a shallow hole in the ground - it starts burning after a while, because of a magma camber relatively close to the surface. Alas, no video for this one.
