J is for Jameos del Agua

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!

Looking up and looking down!

  1. I love that first picture, with all the people glowing as they walk down to the cave.

  2. Even with all the tourists, it is still a magical place. Lovely shots, Sue.

    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Amazing colors in that first shot, Sue. They hardly look real. That shot would make a great puzzle.

  4. I really liked this place, Sue, but I have heard it described as ‘tacky’! No pleasing some folk. 😦 I absolutely love that first shot. You can feel the heat outside. I’d love to be there right now. It’s dismal here!
