On the Canary Island La Palma, unexpectedly, there is a lot of water. Some of this water ends up in the Cascada de Los Colores, a small waterfall of red, yellow, and green streams. Soon the stream becomes mostly red, stays like that for a while, slowly turns into yellow, as other, clear water connects to it, and in the end, it fades into ordinary water.
The very top of La Palma is the Roque de los Muchachos with it’s 2426m height. On cloudy days, this is the view - that pointy thing in the distance is the Teide on Tenerife, way above the clouds, with it’s 3718m.
The Roque de los Muchachos host a significant amount and rather important astronomy telescopes. Unfortunately visitors are not allowed up here during the night because even that tiny ligth pollution could distort measurements, but it’s certainly a unique view, even during daytime.

While it’s not the complete fairytale Japan one might expect, in the end, the only thing one could wish for is a small forest of giant bamboo, because everything else is tranquility here. The ponds were full of huge frogs and lovely newts, the air was filled with loud and happy birds - it’s a lovely place.
I took the picture not that early, sometimes just after sunrise.
Just another abandoned, decaying factory in Budapest.
Empty windows, nature slowly taking over, rubble everywhere - a few decades of decay.
