Frizztext’s A to Z Challenge: J is for Jameos del Agua

I’m late posting for Frizztext’s A to Z Challenge this week.

I usually start these posts by suggesting which places that I have visited in my travels could be covered, starting with whatever this week’s letter is……but this week I can think of only one!

J is for Jameos Del Agua, which is located in the north of Lanzarote. It is part of a cave system in the island’s volcanic rock (the Atlantida volcanic cave system) formed by the eruptions of a volcano about three to four thousand years ago.

Inside the cave, which has a collapsed roof, is a salt water lake (Jameo Chico). This lake contains a species of tiny blind albino crab that is unique to this place. I found the cave with its lake to be very photogenic, and spent some time trying to get images that gave me a sense of this cave, but alas failed to capture images of the minute crabs!

  1. Aw, beautiful reflections 🙂

  2. I guess the man made steps are a necessary evil to prevent damage from traffic. Nice shots with the light surrounded by darkness.

    • The cave was developed into a tourist attraction from an idea by César Manrique, so the steps are to allow easy access… Glad you like the shots!

  3. I think I have been to a Jackson in the US and also Johannesburg in SA, but there aren’t a lot of towns beginning with J unless you visit China! I’m not a huge fan of caves so thank you for sharing these lovely images. And as Simone says, great reflections!

  4. I really like that top image Sue – it would be ideally suited to tilt-shift (or have you done that already?)

  5. hey Susan: “J” is for JUDD!

  6. oh wow! looks enchanting! a hidden paradise!

  7. I thought this place was really beautiful and not cave like at all, really, Sue. It’s quite a lot of years since we were there but that blue lagoon is a vivid memory still. 🙂

  8. Wonderful images. You really got the lighting right and the reflections are perfect, Sue. Lovely all the way around.

  9. That first is a fantastic shot Sue!! Love everything about it!
