I was once told that this would be great photo to illustrate a life insurance offer and quite frankly, when I observed this photo – I believe that there is some truth in this statement. Though I don’t usually take photographs such as these, somehow, I just couldn’t resist sharing it with you.
On the day of our wedding anniversary, we drove up to Anaga mountains in Tenerife. After a day of mountain walking, we were completely starved and so we headed to the nearest town to get something to eat. This was Bajamar, a region famous for its open pools – filled with water from the ocean’s waves.
The waves on this particular day were enormous. We watched in awe; hypnotised with the rhythms from our restaurant view. In this restaurant, there was also a young family that left with us. When I was walking around the open pools at sunset, I saw a family standing under the Bajamar’s lighthouse.
They were clearly unaffected by the heights of the water that was splashing behind them. In one moment, the father raises his son into the air. It was one of those magical moments, which screamed an immediate capture. After taking this image, they disappeared from the platform.
