Photo of the week

Since 2008 I have taken and posted a photo of the week picture on my website. Sometimes it is difficult to choose the “best” one so I often pic up an image by feeling not thinking it should be the one I like most.

Photo of the week 6

is taken in Anaga Country Park on the island of Tenerife. I love laurisilva forest and finally I was able to see some. “Some areas of the Canary Islands are still home to a prehistoric natural treasure: laurel forests that have survived here since the Tertiary Period. In Tenerife, most of these expanses can be found in the mountain ranges of Anaga, Teno, Aguagarcía and Tigaiga. These forests once covered much of northern Africa and southern Europe up until roughly 20,000 years ago. Today they are sadly all but gone.”
