Beautiful Canary Islands
A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to return to the Canary Islands in Spain. Together with my family and friends, we took a cruise around this beautiful area of Spain including the remote Portuguese island of Madeira. Once again, I left my beloved Nikon D800 at home to save some weight and brought the tiny Fuji X-E1 along, instead. Three lenses were in my small travel bag: The Fuji 18-55, 55-200, a Samyang fisheye and some filters. It was a good choice. Below are some of the results.
The Canary Islands never fail to impress with their beautiful colours. Unfortunately,we did not have the best weather.
The LEE BIG STOPPER
Even though the Fuji X-E1 is a tiny camera you can still use your regular DSLR filters on it. I bought a step-up ring to attach a LEE Big Stopper filter to the Fuji 18-55 lens. It looked a bit funky but still got the job done. Below are some compositions taken with the filter.
One of the great things to do in the Canary Islands is to take a cruise. Each island is very different. We were lucky and our cruise boat arrived at the remote Portuguese island of Madeira right before midnight of December 31st. I have never seen such spectacular fireworks before.
Madeira itself seems to be an extremely beautiful island. Unfortunately, we did not have a lot of time to explore. But what we did see was simply amazing.
That was a small selection of photographs from the trip. On a final note – I simply love traveling with the Fuji X-E1. It’s extremely light and simply begs to be used. As much as I love the Nikon D800, not sure if I will travel with it in the future….
