Created on 2 Apr 1975 ... Correct. I used 400 ASA Ektachrome slide film with its characteristic colour and grain in two Canon AE1-bodies. So we are talking analogue photography here. In this private (yes, I had permission) and secluded part of Deelerwoud, there are hardly any paths. Just the tracks the animals use. My two hosts and then girl-friend kindly helped me carry my kit including the heavy tripod. The slides have faded unfortunately, which doesn't keep me from cherishing these pictures. They are the oldest in this website, and the occasion was unique and special.

This relatively small area in the south west of Lanzarote belongs to the most impressive landscapes in the Canary Islands. Nearly 300 years ago, in a few weeks' time, the island was expanded by a third because of continuous eruptions of lava that swallowed compete villages on its way. The colours were created by chemical processes, and still, roughly 200 years after the last eruption, there's nothing that will grow here. NASA uses a secret spot to train their astronauts. The area is now UNESCO heritage. .
