Yesterday, I wrote about our stop in Tenerife. (Time in Tenerife) Today, I’m going to take you on a photo journey to the other two Canary Islands that Todd and I had the opportunity to visit while on our transatlantic cruise.
The first stop is the Island of La Palma. Todd and I didn’t have an excursion planned for this island so we just walked around Santa Cruz. La Palma is much quieter than the other two islands we visited. It was a perfect place to stroll, relax and do some people watching. It was also the first land we had seen in six days. While we loved being on the sea, it was nice to actually step foot on firm ground again.
A few days later we were on the island of Lanzarote. Here, we went to the beach of Tias near Puerto Del Carmen. It is a dark sand beach filled with yellow and orange umbrellas. Since I am a walker instead of a sunbather, I ventured the streets near the beach and had a good time seeing how the locals lived.
To purchase a print or see a larger view, click on the photo. I am in the process of linking each past photo to the gallery view, where you can choose to buy prints. It is a bit tedious but I should have all previous blog posts done soon. To see more of my photos, visit my galleries.
Wow, very nice shots! And the place looks amazing! 🙂
The islands are very nice. 🙂 Thanks
Fabulous photos – you make it irresistible!
Thank you. I am glad you keep liking my photos. 🙂
Yes true that…what awesome views i got out of this:)
Thank you CLF.
have you edited any of the photos?
No, I’ve changed the brightness a bit.
What stunning photos!
Thank you Ali.
Such a outstanding quality , like a real time view !
Which Camera & lens are you using sir ? At the end , it’s all about your magical hand , but if you would say . . . 🙂 Nirav .
I don’t remember exactly what camera I had on this trip. I think it was Canon. Now I use Nikon D3100 and the standard lens that came with it.
Looks like a real paradise. Amazing photos!
Thank you Haley. So if you are from a place such as this, where do you go on vacation? 😉
That’s a good question…I’m guessing somewhere with snow. Although I couldn’t imagine anyone would need a vacation from these islands!
Love the pics – great angles!!
Thanks Elliot. When you visit Europe you should stop off in the Canary Islands.
These seems very clear and precise – good shots.
Thanks again Lawrence
Thank you so much.
Transatlantic Rain is my favorite!
Thank you buckylb
Your colors are so crisp!….how do you do that?!?
I think it has to do with lighting.
Can I ask what camera you use?
Thanks for that. I think I might upgrade mine (your photos are so magnificent!)
Love the beach photo with the palms, but they are all so very nice..
Thank you garnish greek.
AH-amazing! Beautiful photos. I still think you should make a calendar of your photos.. it will sell like hot cakes!
That’s an idea. I’ll look into it.
The close up photos are really special. Finding art in the little things.
Thank you life out of the box.
Reblogged this on vienaqui and commented:
This is a unique collection of beautiful photos and a simple but effective way to get in touch with nature….amazing
You are welcome and your photo collection is awesome indeed !
I visited Lanzarote 3 years ago (I haven’t blogged about it, so unfortunately I have no photos to show you) and I liked it because it was “different” from other places that I have been. I went to the volcano area and took a tour and also visited some villages in the inland.I wasn’t much impressed by Puerto del Carmen…it is built so dense and it’s full of hotels and restaurants (not so much local flair)
We didn’t spend as much time on Lanzarote as I would have liked to. Essentially, we just got off the boat and rode to the beach.
I have cycled lots in Lanza … one of my favourite training destinations … love your work! x
Thanks, love the footballer picture on your blog. 😉
Transatlantic rain is a particular favorite for me.
Thanks perry. 🙂
Thank you for the nice little mini-vacay from my desk! Absolutely lovely pictures!!
Thanks so much. 🙂
Such a variety of subjects. Most enjoyable
Thank you again! 🙂
Love that darling bird! 🙂
Yep, it was a great model.
Thank you Laura .
Awesome! I have a pigeon thing. I’ll post my Provence Pigeon some time.
Great deal. 🙂 Thanks for your visit.
Looks like a great place to go, nice photos here
It is. 🙂 Thanks
Beautiful photography! I’m a novice photographer. I do it as a hobby. But would like to improve my basic knowledge so I can add a few prints periodically with my blogs. Great work…
Thanks Indi. I am glad you enjoy.
Great place and nice shots

You make my day by confirming that i’m not the only photographer who gets excited by simple things like doors and rough edged stone…
…the bird photo is stunning, I also like the raindrops on the ship’s rail too… but I always go back to the buildings and stone photos.
Favourites of these (ok I love the bird and the stone face, but also “time” with the clock tower…it was the combination of stone and little snippits of highlight colour that did it)
Yes. I like to take pictures of usual things as well. 🙂 Thanks kiwidutch.
The beauty in the simplicity of the pictures is perfect! 🙂
Thanks Jewel of San Francisco.
La Palma is, of the Canary Islands I visited, my favorite one; have you tried the wonderful white wines and fresh fish in any of the “chiringitos” in the beach?
No, I haven’t. I didn’t have enough time but I want to go back and spend some time there.
Haha, I’d also be one of the walkers then… 😛 The place looks quite interesting. 🙂
The 2nd last picture, I forgot the English name, but there are loads of those here (in Bali).. And we call it ‘kembang kertas’ (roughly translated into English: paper flower).
Cool. Thanks! 🙂
Mad photo skills!
You are very talented. I will be back for more visual joy! (-:
👍👍👍 thanks so much.
Lovely photos. 🙂
Barbarella. 🙂 Thanks so much.

I was here in November hoping it would still be warm enough for me to swim (flew from London for some sun), and it was freezing and dead. Too bad. It seemed pretty.
Sorry to hear. Did you have a good time though?
I was on my own and there was not much to do…so not really.
