The story behind this image

During our week long winter break on Lanzarote in the Canary Islands my wife Liz and I spent most of our time driving around the rugged volcanic landscape and coast, away from the more developed tourist spots.

However, we did spend a few hours walking around and photographing the harbour and waterfront at Playa Blanca on the south coast of the island - definitely one of the more up-market tourist developments.

The harbour itself was the main attraction, with some very nice boats moored alongside waterfront restaurants and bars to admire.

In fact, I liked Playa Blanca so much that I made us stay, parked up on the harbour wall, shooting my Lanzarote Dusk Timelapse #2 video until nightfall.

This image shows one of those elegant yachts, shining in the Atlantic sunshine with its mast framed by some nicely placed cumulus clouds.
