29619. Setting moon above the hills above Haría, early in the morning
29623. The sun, rising from the sea. Unlike the sun in higher latitudes, for instance at the west coast of the Black Sea, which rises slowly and is of dark red colour, the sun rose as a very bright fireball, as a true herald of African heat, and with great speed, as it would be engine driven.
29625. Graves are in walls, usually in four levels as depicted here, with front side just big enough for a coffin.
29624. Some tombstones are not black but of stone in lighter colours, and date of birth is often not given.
29627. Quite a few graves had vases with fresh flowers such as white lilies shown here.
29628. Some graves have a sculpture for a tombstone, such as this of Tino, probably a flute player and a composer.
29629. Tombstone of César Manrique, 1919 - 1992, the artistic father and patron-saint of Lanzarote. Many small details on the tombstone and around it reveal how dear he is to the hearts of people on this island, as, for instance does the setting of the Leo Tolstoy's grave.
