No, Bob, sorry. That's not a piece of rock , that is Spanish Liz winding her canopy up.

Obviously a panoramic landscape image, but a very specific one; any thoughts?


It's a scan of an older print, so definition not great. The colour is quite accurate though. Larger image here

It looks like sand so could it be some sort of shellfish farm, like mussels or something? It isn't like any that I have seen I must admit, those have been on frames.

Volcanic landscape or hot springs? Those yellow bits look like flames.

I think it was Lanzarote where I saw this, or something similar (my visit was a long time ago). It's a way of growing something but I can't remember what.

Got it between you, and almost within 24 hours It's part of a vineyard on Lanzarote, as TW noticed, and which lilyalli correctly noted is 100% volcanic. Each depression holds two or three vines, which are shielded from the wind, and able to make maximum use of available water.
Here is the full size image, where you can see the vines and the whole panorama.

The reason I couldn't remember 'vines' was because I always think of those growing up supports and we'd have seen them. So what grows closer to the ground? Umm ..cabbages, potatoes etc do but I knew it wouldn't be those!

My first thought was bubblewrap, but guess I need to think some more.
