Mountains of Gran Canaria Re-Visited

By DicksPics
Today's image was taken in January 2017 from the Hotel Paradores de Cruz de Tejeda in central Gran Canaria - elevation just over 1500 metres.

The views of the mountains were breath-taking: a bit like the car journey up to this wonderful location(and down again!!)Smile

For me, it's a definite 'wish I was there ... again ... image' and reminder of our days of 'freedom'!!

Many thanks for all votes and comments on 'The Central Staircase' upload and, especially, to Dave(HobbitDave) and Steve(Stephen_B) for their awards - all very much appreciated, as always.Smile

I hope you have a good weekend.

Real rugged peaks with a great feeling of recession. Getting away from the maddening crowds?

For a modest elevation, these craggy peaks suggest a much higher mountain range. The mist imparts a sense of distance beautifully, Richard. A lovely landscape.

The square butte middle left is an eyecatching flat line in amongst the angular slopes . We have a few of those huge buttes near us.
Not much tree cover ..must be very hot there .
Great compostion Richard many of us with itchy feet ,..yearning for new vistas.
Best regards

Terrific - the layer effect, due to haze I suppose, is wonderful, almost graphic.
