Photo of the month, November 2021
Photo of the month, November 2021… As every month I found myself in recent days choosing the photo of the month, an image that, on a collective level, serves to remember better than others in the future, the month of November 2021 that has just ended. It has been a troubled month in many respects, primarily due to the protests, not only in Italy but all over the world, against the Green Pass and the post Covid 19 restrictions.
But the photo I want to bring you back is not related to these issues. In fact, I will remember this month of November for what happened in La Palma, the Spanish Canary Islands. It is here that the eruption of the local volcano began on 19 September. An eruption that began quietly at first and that in the following month of November came to the eyes of the world (and also to me) thanks to incredible images like the ones I am showing you.
Celebrating Nature is part of my innermost DNA. In this case, however, I feel a bit more torn because the spectacular eruption of La Palma is indeed an incredible circus of colors for a photography enthusiast like me, but it is also a tragedy for the local population with almost 10,000 displaced persons out of 90,000. inhabitants.
So I try to report in this post the images that struck me most of the La Palma eruption.
