Spain’s Canary Island Volcano PICS: Some astonishing photos of the Cumbre Vieja volcano that’s still erupting

  • The volcano first erupted on September 19, 2021, and since then it has been active.
  • New vents opened up on November 29, 2021, to spew out lava and ashes.
  • Quick evacuation by the authorities saved lives and no one was reported dead or injured.

On September 19, 2021, La Palma’s Cumbre Vieja volcano erupted and covered around 2700 acres of Canary Island in lava. This not only brought life on the island to a standstill but gravely impacted the roads, homes and plantations. It is also said that the lava flowing down the mountains covered a local cemetery that had the remains of around 3000 locals. No injuries or deaths were reported, thanks to the Canary Island authority which quickly evacuated around 7000 people.

It has been 10 weeks since then but the volcanic eruptions have not abated. On November 29, 2021, new vents opened up in the volcano to spew out lava and ashes. As per Spain’s National Geographic Institute spokesperson María José Blanco, the fluid molten rock flowed at a speed of 6 metres per minute towards land to wreak havoc. Also, more than 80 earthquakes were also reported before the new vents opened up. Here are some of the astonishing photos of the lava flowing down.

Captured on the lens, Spanish soldiers were seen taking pictures of the fresh volcanic eruptions on the Canary island of La Palma, Spain, on Monday, November 29. The volcano has been active since September 19, 2021.

The fluid molten rock rolling down towards the land illuminated the entire area. A Spanish soldier in a vigil was seen clicking the picture of the lava from a vantage point on November 29, 2021.

After the new vents opened up, the volcano started spitting out more lava and ashes that dangerously polluted the air and made it deadly to breathe in. This volcano has been continuously spitting out molten rock since September 19.

Scientists have identified around 11 different lava flows since the time the volcano erupted. As per experts, the volcano might continue erupting for another 2-3 months.

This picture is of La Laguna town where lave destroyed houses, roads and power lines. Although most of the island has remained unaffected by the volcanic eruptions, tremors have been felt everywhere.

It’s lave everywhere. The mountain can be seen at the backdrop and it spat out molten rock that turned the beautiful Canary Island black. No deaths were reported but the infrastructure was completely destroyed.

236 | Teide Moon | Tenerife, Spain

Click the image to take a closer look.

This picture has been taken at November 24th just after sunset when the moon was at 6% luminance. It shows the volcano Teide 3718m on Tenerife seen from the road TF-21 at kilometer 28. After parking my car along-side the road and I hiked up the slope to wait for the sunset. I had no idea that the moon would be in this perfect aligning with the mountain therefore I was very happy with my shot.

This shot shows one of the most incredible sunsets I’ve ever witnessed at the west shore of Tenerife in Palm-Mar. The sky was painted in red for almost an hour. Despite the great outcome of the photo the conditions where pretty difficult. The wind was blowing like hell and the splashing water forced me to clean the lens almost every minute.

235 | Perfect Sunset Montana Roja | Tenerife, Spain

The first impression of a good photo opportunity is sometimes very misleading. This happened in this picture. You may not believe me that in my back was the village El Médano which is crowded witch tourists and located right next to the airport Tenerife Sur. When I arrived and saw the crowd I almost gave up the idea of a unique photo.
After a short hike up to Montaña Roja 173m I did see a small lake from the summit behind a sand dune, which had formed after the stormy days before. At the lake I couldn’t believe my luck. The 5cm deep area of water reflected the surrounding perfectly and the almost cloudless sky made the sunset breathtaking. Besides me there was only one person in the deserted landscape on the crest on the lookout for the perfect photo.

This picture contains two exposures for the sky/water 1/10sec and 1/5sec for the landscape post processed together with luminosity masking.
