Punta Jandia is the southern most point on the island of Fuerteventura. Reached by a 20km off-road adventure that is not for the fient hearted especially if the weather has been bad, fortunately not often.
Close to the point lies the “characterful” village of Puerto de la Cruz – it has the feeling of not being at the edge of the world but rather having fallen off it – that said the views back to the Jandia peninsular are sublime.
Here is a hi-res mode image (cropped to 16:9) of the view north – I am finding that the G9s hi-res mode deals with moving water surprisingly well and have also discovered that the files respond particularly well to the Color Efex Pro Detail Extractor filter.
Click on the image and then click again to see the detail.
The somewhat dramatic sky also makes this image a candidate for black & white conversion, as usual using Silver Efex Pro.
At the point itself lies the Faro de Punta Jandia – best captured in black & white due to the rather austere surroundings and in this case with a long exposure (Big Stopper) to make the most of the rapidly moving clouds.
