Bugloss on Teide Mountain | Tenerife, Spain

Ever wondered what a bugloss is? A bugloss is a plant that is widespread on the island of Tenerife, in Spain. It usually grows up to approximately 3 meters in height and you can see it on Las Cañadas del Teide. I have always wanted to see them bloom in an inflamed red shade.

The Burano, with its distinctive colours, was unlike anything I had ever seen before. I later learned that there was a purpose behind the colour-toned design. During the golden age of development of Burano, if a house owner wanted to paint his belongings, he had to apply to Burano’s government for a colour. The government would only allow a few options of colours of choice.

Benijo Beach, Tenerife – a day in paradise

As the most beaches in Tenerife, the sand of Benijo Beach is black. There are also black stones in the water because of its volcanic origin. As you can see on the picture, these natural elements create out-of-the-Earth scenery and thus make Benijo Beach, Tenerife a photographer’s heaven. It’s owned by the city of Taganana, and its length is 300 m (985 ft).

During our stay in the fantastic Berjaya Langkawi Resort in Pulau Langkawi, Malaysia I was finally able to take my latest technical gadget for a test-drive: My DJI Phantom 4 drone, which enables me to take pictures from a bird’s-eye view. The picture of the sapphire blue sea and the lush forest, together with the small wooden chalets of the resort prove that I couldn’t have picked a more suitable place – this coastal stretch deserves to be captured from above in all its beauty.
