Spurred on by my fellow blogger Bob, who posts such interesting pictures on the Written.inc weekly theme, I decided to rise to the challenge myself. So I offer a couple of recent photos from here in the Canary Islands. The above, from Lanzarote’s National Park, is a piece of laval rock, which is definitely on the way to being vertical, and looks as though it has landed in the lava field like a javelin or spear thrown by the mighty Vulcan himself. I took a bit of artistic licence with that one and this one is more geometrically correct (although no plumb line was used to check), and sits on the cliffs above Famara.
Welcome to my blog, where I take pleasure in words and pictures, be they my own or those of others. I'm a creative individual, and the crafty side I explore on my 'other blog', Picking Up The Threads, which I hope you'll visit too. I'm sure you understand that I have sole copyright of my original work and any of my contributions, so please ask if you want to use them. A polite request is rarely refused. So, as they used to say on the BBC's 'Listen With Mother' radio programme, many years ago: "Are you sitting comfortably? Then we'll begin."
