Photography and Winter Sun!

Having just returned from spending half term in the Canary Islands I was pleased to be able to combine time with the family with a spot of landscape photography. They are truly a fantastic location for seascape photographers.

This image was captured in Corralejo on the island of Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands. Located in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa these beautiful islands offer a fantastic location to enjoy the winter sun. This view was looking towards the island of Lanzarote which can be seen on the horizon. Due to the full moon there were particularly high tides producing huge waves. For this shot I was positioned on the beach and my kit was well away from the water. Without warning I was caught by a particularly large wave and in no time at all was up to my knees in water, As I grabbed the camera I turned to see my kit being washed along the beach. Thankfully everything was fine and my bag kept everything dry. It could so easily have been a different outcome but at least I got the shot I wanted.
