Los Gigantes on the west coast of Tenerife, the largest of the Canary Islands, is famous for one thing only - the huge and dramatic sea cliffs that stretch northwards from the seaside town all the way to the northwestern tip of the island at Punto De Teno.
So of course, a visit to Los Gigantes was high on my photographic list of 'go to' places for the week that Liz and I spent on Tenerife in early 2017.
After finding a back street to park in, we made our way down to the shoreline and, to our suprise, we found a beach of actual sand (black volcanic), strewn with rocks fallen from the cliffs above.
Sitting on the beach with Liz, enjoying the view as the sun headed down towards tghe western horizon, I spotted this solitary woman, one of the last people on the beach, in the surfline at the base of the towering cliffs.
So I included her in this composition, adding a sense of scale to the grandeur of the landscape.
