Photographer's Note

Hi Trekkers,

Roughly a year ago I spent a week in the island of Gran Canaria. That was the first time I was in Africa - although the Canary Islands politically belong to Spain and Europe, geographically the area is obviously a part of the African continent.

The capital of the island, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, has (as said) the 2nd longest urban beach on Earth, Las Canteras. Although I myself prefer less exposed sites, this beach is one of the most famous tourist attractions of the island. However, I found it more photogenic in the blue hour than at daytime.

Photo: shot from the square near the Alfredo Kraus Auditorium and Las Arenas shopping centre, in the blue hour. Handheld, ISO 80, f/8, 1/30 sec. in manual exposure mode and manual white balance. PP: slight level and color adjustment, moderate cropping, re-sharpening after re-sizing.

Thanks for looking.
