At long last I've finished presenting images from Gran Canaria, and lovely though the Canary Islands are I'm certainly glad to be back in beautiful North Wales for today's photos here at goHOWiE.com.

These two pictures of the Conwy estuary were taken last July on the flanks of the Great Orme at the West Shore, Llandudno, which just goes to show how far behind I am with processing!

Whew! I've finally reached the end of the images I've chosen from our week on Gran Canaria last February in the Canary Islands to present here at goHOWiE.com, with this somewhat random selection of photos that didn't quite fit in any other grouping.

It's nice to go away on holiday and get some fresh photographic inspiration, but it's also great to come home again, especially when you live in beautiful North Wales.

Which is where we'll be returning to in the next few days here at goHOWiE.com.

To my mind, the less developed north coast of Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands is much more interesting than the touristic south, so my wife Liz and I spent most of our holiday week exploring this side of the island.

One of our favourite places on the north coast must be Puerto de Las Nieves, with various images from the town shown here.

One of my pleasures while on holiday in foreign climes is to drive the lesser travelled roads and see out of the way places.

Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands has some great driving roads, such as the GC-200, pictured here surrounded by the mountainous volcanic landscapes near the small town of Mogan in the island's interior.
