Day 2 – Dunes, Betancuria, Antigua and night-time photography
The countryside around Betancuria is packed with molinos and molinas (in Spain windmills have genders!). Obviously Molinos are larger and Molinas smaller, we couldn’t really tell the difference.
Our next step was Mirador Morro Veloso. You just can’t miss this spot, at about 650m above sea-level and it oversees the valley underneath which makes it a great spot for some unique photography. The two large statues represent the first two aboriginal kings of Fuerteventura, called “Los Guanches”.
In Betancuria (the old capital of the Island) we visited a 17th Century church and found great colours for stunning group pictures.
Our final stop for the day was the old town of Antigua where we could visit another stunning colonial church.
Just a quick shower and a quick bite and we’re already back on the track heading again to the much looked forward to night-time photography session at the Mirador Morro Veloso. These are some of our favourite shots of the session:
