Catching The Beauty Of Gran Canaria

posted on 12th of december, 2007

I'll be with my family in Gran Canaria next month and I was wondering maybe someone can suggest me some great nature locations in the southern part of the island?
Some great tips what to pay attention when shooting on sandy beaches would be useful too. How to protect camera?

Any suggestions? Or location hints?

I hope there will be good weather then, not too hot I guess. How to avoid harsh shadows, when sun is always brightly shining?
But mostly would love to hear about some beautiful nature spots where you never get with the tourist guide. Any locals here? Or stationary visitors?
Can't wait to get away from that dark winter...

Well, we are back from that beautiful-beautiful iceland and I have managed to review those 2500 photos I took during our trip... Huh... I have to stop that constant shooting habit :)) But this lovely and scenic iceland with its mountains and beaches and warm friendly people, is a place definitely worth to visit.

For the layout...you can try adding spaces. But actually this layout looks good to me! To avoid harsh shadows: use your flash or a reflector to bounce light on to faces. Otherwise to avoid the harsh shadows, shoot early and/or late in the day. Enjoy yourself the rest of the time and put the camera away during the heat of the day.
