Gran Canaria

A holiday week on Gran Canaria. The weather on the island had 2 faces. The north was cloudy and windy, the south sunny and calm. The first photo features some houses of local fisherman on the north, facing the Atlantic. The second photo shows the arid and dry south. After a climb uphill from our appartment in Puerto de Mogán, you enter an area of vulcanic rock with some sparcely populated bushes. Ideal terrain of Southern Great Grey Shrike (Lanius excubitor, race koenigi /Klapekster), Canary (Serinus canaria/Kanarie), a few dark-headed Blue Tits (Parus caeruleus, race teneriffae/Pimpelmees), Kestrels (Falco tinnunculus/Torenvalk).

* Canon EOS 5D Mark II, 70-200mm/f2.8 @ 80 mm; ISO-50, f9, 1/40s; bean bag.
