Os vulcões e as suas cinzas são mundialmente conhecidos como perigosos e muitas vezes mortais para toda a vida em geral, mas pouco se sabe sobre a sua capacidade de proteger a vida de uma forma que apenas algumas pessoas conhecem.
Na ilha de Lanzarote, a cinza vulcânica é usada na plantação de vinha, numa região conhecida como “La Geria”. As vinhas são plantadas em buracos profundos no chão, que por sua vez servem de barreira natural para proteger as vinhas dos ventos fortes que fustigam a ilha. Depois cobrem o chão com “Picon”, uma pedra seca de cinza vulcânica, que protege o solo fértil da evaporação da humidade, impedindo que escape e permitindo que a planta se enraíze melhor no solo fértil, e não perder nutrientes devido as altas temperaturas e luz solar direta.
É verdadeiramente espectacular passear por estes campos que parecem nascidos da imaginação de Tim Burton, admirando as paisagens vulcânicas desoladas, e o efeito magico das vinhas, com os seus muitos buracos espalhados pela região…

Chemical Manipulations with the Lomo’Instant Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!
