The Island of Fuerteventura
Fuerteventura is the second largest but less inhabited of the Canary Islands. It is famous for the lunar volcanic landscapes, its sunsets on the wild west coast, the white sand dunes of its deserts and the shades of blue of its crystal waters, all perfect elements to capture a wide variety of untouched landscape shots.
For its uniqueness in 2009 Fuerteventura has been declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. It has a very pleasant dry climate and is on the same latitude as Florida and Mexico, and enjoys over 320 sunny days a year. It does rain, but for just a handful of days a year, and usually at night.
The island is also often referred to as the island of eternal spring.
Due to these factors, the light conditions are most of the time ideal for landscape photographers.
