Beautiful Tenerife

My own, and readers’ photos of this wonderful island! Anyone who would like to add a photo of their own please do just email it to me (help@janetanscombe.com), or give me a link to a Facebook photo, and I’ll add it. We really are very lucky!

I’ll start with one of my own, taken in the Llano de Ucanca on Sunday, 10 January 2016.

Teide Jan 2016 (1000 x 534)

An atmospheric one from Alys French, who says it “was taken in one of the old vineyards, off the TF 51, between the Reveron Winery and Vilaflor.  I was struck by how a dead pine, and a few wildflowers, can still look beautiful!”

An amazing view over the whole Costa Adeje sent by Raico Rosenberg, who has a website full of such images HERE!
