On the beach from Dawn until Dusk..

A Postcard or two from Fuerteventura

Regular followers of this blog will know that I love the sea, I love the coast and I love the beach.  Whether visiting the beaches around the coast of my home county of Cornwall, the black volcanic snow and ice covered beaches of Iceland or the sun drenched beaches of the Canaries, I’m a happy man.

Here a few picture postcard beach shots from my recent visit to Fuerteventura, I hope you enjoy them..

  1. Such beauty…and there’s no wondering why you’re a happy man, Adrian!

    • Thank you Scott! Yes indeed I’m very content! :-)

      March 19, 2016 at 6:02 pm

      • You’re welcome, my friend…enjoy it enough for the both of us. :)

      • I will do Scott! Thank you! :-)

  2. The clarity in your photos is startling, you can feel the wind peeling the top of the waves.

    March 19, 2016 at 5:42 pm

    • Thank you very much! It’s always windy in the Canary Islands which makes for some great waves.

      March 19, 2016 at 6:05 pm

  3. A very beautiful set of images, Adrian!

    • Thank you Dina! :-)

  4. Wonderful images!! You should visit the other islands in the archipielago! They are so different between them and beautiful… specially the small ones!! ;)

    March 19, 2016 at 6:05 pm

    • Thank you Mercedes. I would love to visit the other islands. I used to sail a great deal. How lovely it would be to hire a boat and sail around all the islands. That steady wind would make sailing the islands such a pleasure. That is definitely now on my bucket list. :-)

      • They are also formed by volcanic eruptions.. you’ll be surprised to see that there are some similarities with Iceland… without the cold weather and the snow and ice (except for the Mt. Teide, of course).
        Anyway, it’s a pleasure to watch the beauty of my birthplace though your camera!!

        March 19, 2016 at 6:15 pm

      • Such a lovely compliment Mercedes, thank you. I did notice quite a lot of similarities between the islands and Iceland. Especially looking down during the flights in and out. To see the strings of volcanos so clearly was quite something.

  5. It is a brilliant idea to stay out that long on the beach In all the light hours. Your result shows it is worth it. It must have been an amazing day too. The colour of down is spectacular <3

  12. Just magnificent! I’m a lover of purple hues so I’m diggin’ the top photo so much! I’m so glad you got to warm up a bit on vacation.

    March 19, 2016 at 11:29 pm

    • Thank you! :-)

      March 20, 2016 at 7:45 am

  14. Fuerteventura is on my list for a winter visit now, but to be honest some of these photos look very Cornish :)
    I hope the warmth has done you good.

    March 20, 2016 at 12:34 am

    • Thanks Jude! Some of the beaches definitely looked very Cornish just a tad warmer. I feel great after a break in the sun. Sunshine works wonders and it was nice to have some sunshine on our return also. Very cold sunshine but it made the transition from holiday back to reality a little easier to be sure. :-)

      March 20, 2016 at 7:45 am

      • I don’t like it too hot nowadays, but around 20 – 25 degrees suits me fine. If only we could have that here for a few months.

        March 21, 2016 at 7:30 pm

      • Eliza Dolittle springs to mind.. It would indeed be wonderful. I think you’ll enjoy the climate in the Canaries at this time of year for sure Jude! :-)

        March 21, 2016 at 7:56 pm

  15. your photos are so vivid, and it’s a great idea to hang out from dawn to dusk at the beach. did you ever take night shots of beaches? (wondering cos I always find the waves in the darkness eerily calming)

    March 20, 2016 at 6:08 am

    • Thank you very much, yes I have taken quite a few photos of the beach at night. I find the ocean at any time of day calming but I agree, at night very much so.

      March 20, 2016 at 7:41 am

  16. Beautiful series, Adrian, and so different fram Iceland.

    March 20, 2016 at 1:47 pm

    • Thank you very much Bente! The beaches were beautiful and the sunshine very welcome after a very grey, drizzly winter here in Cornwall. :-)

      March 20, 2016 at 1:58 pm

  17. absolutely beautiful !!!!

    March 20, 2016 at 4:44 pm

    • I’m so glad you enjoyed the pictures Gwennie! Thank you for your comment! :-)

      March 20, 2016 at 5:18 pm

  18. A great reminder for us Adrian. We haven’t been for a couple of years, but Fuerteventura is super for some winter warmth.

    March 20, 2016 at 10:18 pm

    • It really is Dave, thank you!

      March 21, 2016 at 8:03 pm

  19. The middle-end series with the sweet turquoise and green, and the waves – those get to me! Glad you enjoyed!

    March 21, 2016 at 2:30 am

    • The colours were sublime Lynn! I’m a bit sorry to be home now, that’s for sure. The sunshine was such a tonic! :-)

      March 21, 2016 at 8:03 pm

  20. Beautiful!

  22. Keep enjoying the sea, the coast and the beach. Looks indeed like you are having a good time. Lovely images,

    March 22, 2016 at 3:46 pm

    • I’m home now Otto and had a fabulous time in Fuerteventura thank you. Thank dose of sunshine was just what I needed after such a long winter!

      March 25, 2016 at 6:17 pm

  23. What a great gallery that is, Adrian. In particular I like those images of the surf with the wind catching the spume. Lucky lad on holiday again!

    March 22, 2016 at 6:52 pm

    • Thank you Andy! I did indeed feel very lucky to be away once more. Thank heaven for budget airlines and last minute deals on Booking.com. I’d never been to the Canaries and thoroughly enjoyed the dose of winter sunshine. I’ve a strong feeling I’ll be making a return journey next February/March!

      March 25, 2016 at 6:21 pm
