Photographer's Note

Thermal anomalies of the Timanfaya National Park, which due to a residual magma chamber located three kilometers deep, cause when you pour water, a geyser of boiling steam that reaches 100 to 200 degrees Celsius on the surface of soil.
The Natural Park of Timanfaya, also known as the Montanas de Fuego, is located on the island of Lanzarote in the Canary archipelago.
On September 1, 1730 the earth opened up land near Timanfaya (which was a settlement) and the huge mountain lay their bowels sinus rivers of lava and fire flames for 19 days, followed by six years eruptions, new eruptions occurred in 1824 that led to another three volcanic cones.
These eruptions left a legacy in humanity, a unique place as a lunar landscape and sensitive which is protected under the denomination of the Timanfaya National Park, and as a World Biosphere Reserve, a title awarded by UNESCO.
