One of my Lanzarote photos in a local magazine

article by: at: 18th Mar 2011 under: Lanzarote

NU2 (Nudos) – Mar y Arte (Sea and Arts) is a a local magazine focusing on stories, pictures and art related to the sea. Nice, especially for us living on an island, surrounded by the sea. I always liked their content, design and layout and so I am even more proud to be able to announce that in their last edition they featured one of my photographs in their section “Mar y Arte Canario”. The photo is one I have taken a while ago in the harbour of the little fishing village La Santa. During the night I could hear […]

Winter wonderland Lanzarote

article by: at: 6th Feb 2011 under: Lanzarote

Well to tell the truth until a week ago we had not much of a winter here on Lanzarote. If you live or have been here from December till the end of January you probably agree that Lanzarote felt like pure summer. No wind, clear blue skies and beautiful days on the beach. Absolutely amazing even more if we think on that the rest of Europe was either flooded or completely covered with snow. As I mentioned in my first post from this year, I have been to Germany and had never seen my hometown covered in so much snow. […]

Delayed New Year’s Greetings

article by: at: 14th Jan 2011 under: Germany

I can’t believe my last blog post is from September last year, so it is about time to let you know I’m still alive. As you can see from the above picture I was lucky to see some snow as I spent a couple of days in Germany at Christmas. I have only been to my parents village and I can tell I have never seen this place with so much snow. It was incredible and the first white Christmas I had, or at least I can remember, in my hometown. Sorry for all those who had to struggle with […]

Sea turtles in Fuerteventura

article by: at: 11th Oct 2010 under: Fuerteventura

As my Facebook friends already know, last weekend I witnessed the birth of more than 80 sea turtles on the beach of Cofete in Fuerteventura. As part of a project to reintroduce the loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta) in the Canary Islands their eggs are brought from the Cape Verde Islands to the Cofete beach in the south of Fuerteventura where they eventually find the right conditions to prosper. There is some historical evidence that this turtle species once had their breading grounds on the Canary Islands, but because of man-made threats such as Water pollution, industrial fishing, destruction of […]

If you are a friend of mine on Facebook you already know why it was a bit quiet on my blog lately. I was busy in between work, a design course and of course I wanted to enjoy the beautiful weather we had here in the past month, just as I was saying in my last two posts. Despite the fact that it has been calm on my blog a lot of things were going on. The maybe most exciting news is that one of my photos has been chosen in a photographic competition as “The most inspiring picture”. Aside […]

It was only last week I told you that I’m always looking forward to September here on Lanzarote and it looks like this year also September won’t let us down. The first few days here on the island couldn’t have been better. Blue skies, hardly any wind and with that unforgettable sunsets. When the sun is in it’s last few hours the change in light is just spectacular. Everywhere you can see people getting their cameras out trying to capture that magic moment when the sun starts to disappear behind the horizon. On this weeks photograph you see the beautiful […]

Sweet Lanzarote September

article by: at: 30th Aug 2010 under: Lanzarote

When you ask me what season I think would be the best to come and visit Lanzarote I’ll definitely say to you autumn. And especially September is the month I am really looking forward to. With the beginning of September a different life seems to start here on our beautiful island. Suddenly there’s a cense of peace and relax in the air. The summer crowds are gone, the kids are back to school, summer is still lingering but you can feel a change lying in the air. It is the month of mild evenings without the usually constantly blowing wind, […]

There is no green on Lanzarote

article by: at: 23rd Aug 2010 under: Lanzarote

I often heard this phrase from friends who came here for their first holiday in Lanzarote. Well, actually they are right because it is true that plants, trees and grass are not exactly abundant on our little island. And although Lanzarote was, before the volcanic eruptions from 1730 to 1736, known as the granary of the Canary Islands, today it is difficult to imagine that large parts of the island once where covered with corn fields. The six years of eruptions have greatly changed the face of Lanzarote and shaped its landscape forever. For the vegetation on Lanzarote it is […]

What to do in Lanzarote when it is so hot?

article by: at: 16th Aug 2010 under: Lanzarote

“The Spanish State Meteorological Service is expecting a rise in temperatures in Lanzarote compared to previous years. The reason for this prediction is the tendency of temperatures rising each year since 1998 due to global warming.” This is how a recent article in the local newspaper “La Voz de Lanzarote” starts and almost exactly one year has passed since we have experienced an intense heat wave on the island as you can read in my post “Heat wave on Lanzarote” from last year in August. Anyone who does know me, knows that the subject of environmental protection is very important […]

Los Cocoteros and the “Salinas del Tío Alberto”

article by: at: 9th Aug 2010 under: Lanzarote

When nowadays there is the talk about salt flats, or “Salinas” as they are called in Spanish, on Lanzarote than it will be the Salinas de Janubio in the south of the island, near the village of Playa Blanca, which first will come on our mind, as these are the most well known Salinas in Lanzarote. Less well known is probably the fact that the salt flats in Lanzarote until yet not so long ago employed a large proportion of the population. Up to 26 Salinas were there in the islands heydays and remains of these can still be seen […]
