El Mirador de Guinate, Lanzarote

In 2013 I had the opportunity to spend a few days on the island of Lanzarote, as part of my stay I had a couple of days to pass the time and I took a tour of the island, I have to say it was worth it, taking in Timanfaya National Park, the Green Lagoon, Jameos del Agua and many other points of interest on the island including El Mirador de Guinate. Until visiting Lanzarote I had never had any interest in photography and armed with just my tablet it was whilst on this tour that my enthusiasm was ignited.

El Mirador de Guinate offers an outstanding view of the island of La Graciosa and the channel of El Rio that separates them. It can be found on the northern tip of the island in the municipality of Haria surrounded by a tropical park with many species of plants and animals viewable whilst in the area.

The pictures were taken on the 30th July 2013 using a Samsung Galaxy Tablet. They can be seen here, on Flickr and Clickasnap.

Caleta del Sebo, the largest settlement on La Graciosa with a population
of over 730. The islands only ferry service runs from here connecting
with Orzola, Lanzarote.

The looking down towards the waters edge is approx 500 feet
from where the picture was taken.
