Santa Brigida is not far away from Cruz de Tejeda, which is a mountain pass in the middle of the island where you can see down to the ocean in several directions.

Roque Bentayga sits majestically between Cruz de Tejeda and the south side of the island.

Roque Nublo and its plateau is clearly visible from Cruz de Tejeda. The scale is hard to grasp, but I think we can see som tiny pixel-people on the left side of the plateau.

From this wonderful spot there is a great panoramic view. Again we see Roque Nublo to the left and Roque Bentayga to the right. The village down in the valley is Tejeda.

We were waiting for the sun to set, so we went exploring close to Pico de la Nieves.
As the sun gets lower, these fine rays of light in the evening mist is appearing all over.
From here we can see Barranco de Fataga to the left, and all the way down to Maspalomas.
Testing the Leica Elmarit 90-280mm. It is surely a wonderful tool.

I love shooting with backlight. The forests on Gran Canaria are mostly all planted. The pine trees collect moisture from the clouds and supply the island with fresh water.

When driving down to Maspalomas through Barranco de Fataga, I almost always stop at this view point. The Faro lighthouse is visible to the right, and the dark area just above the city lights are the sand dunes, and then the ocean.
