El Mar de Nubes - The Sea of Clouds
Posted on 12:54pm Saturday 17th Sep 2011
The weather on La Palma is many things - and often at the same time around different parts of the island. But last week, we enjoyed a particularly hot spell even at daybreak with the air like a pleasantly warm bath. And this induced a phenomena known in the Canary Islands as el mar de nubes, the sea of clouds.
The photo above was taken from our car park area right here on the finca in Franceses, looking westward towards Santo Domingo de Garafia. The time was 07.25 in the morning - what an amazing spectacle to wake up to.
And this photo was taken a couple of minutes later looking eastwards towards Barlovento.
