TALES OF THE VOLCANO OF LA PALMA

BY SEIGAR

This series was taken in 2021 during two short trips to La Palma, the Canary Islands, also known as La Isla Bonita like the song by Madonna. I feel this island is my hometown, the place I belong to. With mixed feelings, these images became my testimony of the volcano, its immensity, and its effects. I love La Palma, I remember my summers on the beach and camping at the national park, so many memories with my family and friends. I think it's the place I have felt calmer in my life. Thanks my island, this is my little tribute to your last big episode.
