20170413 - Gran Canaria - Day 7
One of the best food experiences we have is when we go to Martell in Santa Brigida, Gran Canaria. We try to visit there every time we are on the island. After a nice lunch, we headed for Cruz de Tejeda, then up to Pico de la Nieves for a wonderful sunset. Then we drove down via Fataga to Maspalomas.
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 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.
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.
