Best Tenerife places – start photography.

One of the best places in Europe to start photography is Tenerife, Canary Island. I started my photography here as well. I would say “I made a big improvement in photography in Tenerife. That’s why I highly recommend Tenerife for your landscape and travel photography. Volcanic, Lunar Landscape. High mountains (volcano mount Teide 3.7 km). Black sand dunes. Desolate rocky landscapes. Lava fields and coastline ideal for long exposures photogrphy. Sunset, Sunrise photography. Old colorful cities – cityscape photography. More info about best Tenerife: Here

Check weather conditions when going up the volcano/mount Teide for the best Tenerife photography places. In the coastal Tenerife it can be +25, and after 15 min drive up the mount temperature drops till +2 or even less. It depends on a specific time. I’m using one of this mountain forecast sites here. Sometimes when it snows, the roads are closed in Teide. Check local road servise (Carreteras Tenerife) news Here. They are very responsive and gives fresh news about the roads. Short video about my adventures in snowed Teide when roads were closed is Here.
