Lovely photos, Jurgen. Like Louby I particularly like the panoramic ones, and the green shoot on the burnt tree.

The pic of your feet - :ph34r:

Agree with the others who have commented on your pics. Outstanding, and if you don't mind my saying so, probably your best set of pics to date. :whistling:

1,250 pics in 8 days, blimey!! I took just over 500 in 10 days when I was in South Devon earlier this month. Would have been far more had I had a larger SD card (4Gb initially but did take videos as well so...) Now have an 8Gb.

Just out of curiosity, what camera do you use? I ask because the picture quality is again to use the word, outstanding.

Phil.

Hi Phil,

Thanks for the great coments.

I use a Canon EOS 350D with a 4Gb CF Extreme III card and a sigma 18mm-200mm f3.5-6.3 telelens Iam not totaly heapy with the lens because autofocus is a bit slow at 200mm.

The panoramas are stitched with autostitch.

Great photos Jurgen.. shame there were no electrical storms but then again youve had more than your fair share back in the Netherlands..!!:rolleyes:..

Amazing to think that this volcanic island may bring the USA to its knees with many casualties if/when as some geologists believe the western flank

of the Cumbre Vieja (volcanic rift running through La Palma) slips into the Atlantic causing a 'Megatsunami' and consuming the eastern seaboard...!!
