Pictures Are Up Now!

(Migrated weblog post from LSR)

Indeed, folks, I have taken some time today to gather some of the best pictures I took yesterday and have decided to upload them into my Flickr account. So if you notice, as part of the elsua template, it will display there the last 10 pictures I have loaded into my account and although I uploaded fifteen of them you will still get a chance to check them out from here. For the other five you will have to go to Flickr and check them out there, directly from the account itself.

From the pictures shown in the elsua template you will be able to see the pine trees from Tamadaba, the reservoir Las Hoyas, Artenara, La Caldera de los Altos de Galdar, the volcanic areas of Galdar, Tejeda, Roque Nublo (the symbol of the Gran Canaria), Roque Bentayga, Risco Blanco and Degollada de las Yeguas.

Just in case you may not be able to locate the other 5 missing pictures here you have got the direct links to them: another picture of Degollada de las Yeguas, Barranco de Berrazales, Roque Nublo and Roque Bentayga together, and two pictures of the pine trees of Tamadaba.

So go and have a look. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I did when I took the pictures. Breathtaking, to say the least.

Hardly Any Time But…

(Migrated weblog post from LSR)

I know that today I have hardly had any time for weblogging a bit. But do not worry, there is a reason for it. I have been having a day off from work and since it was a delightful day outside I decided to go with some friends and check out the island and we have been driving around the island for over 7 hours with breaks here and there. But the most amazing thing is that we have been able to take some of the most stunning and beautiful pictures I have taken in a long while. So much so that I run out of disk space for both digital camera cards. I have one of 256MB and another one of 32MB and both of them are full with pictures. Roughly about 115 high quality pictures, when normally I would take between 50 to 60 pictures in trips like this one.

But I tell you, it has been so wonderful that I am just shocked at how much beauty I have seen throughout the different villages we have visited, the different landscapes, etc. etc. I am going to spend some time now to put them together in my Flickr account. But get ready because they are going to rock. At least, from what I have seen in the camera itself most of them are a superb bunch of high quality pictures with some superb scenes.

When I moved over here, to Gran Canaria, a little bit over a year now, I never thought I would be surprised so often and so much by the island’s diversity, the different people living in it and the superb mini-continent atmosphere. But don’t worry you will get to see that very shortly. I need to get going now and get ready for the weekend but I will share some of the pictures over the next couple of days. You will see what I mean with mini-continent and breathtaking pictures !

Pictures of the Week Now Open !

(Migrated weblog post from LSR)

Ever since I moved out to Gran Canaria, where I have lived now for about one year and seven months, most of my friends, family and colleague workers have asked me to share with them what it is like living in such a beautiful island. And after all that time I guess there is so much to tell that I just don’t know where to start. So over the weekend I have finally been enticed into creating a Flickr account of my own and start sharing some of the pictures I have been taken throughout all this time, so you get to see what I go through on a daily basis when checking out the island.

I am sure that most of you have already heard about Flickr.com and how easy it is to set it up to share your favourite pictures with others. I went there and created an account and started sharing some pictures I took recently. And I thought about getting started with ten pictures to see how it would go. So what I am planning to do now is every week I will update the Flickr account by adding another 10 new pictures I have taken during that same week and will add a few comments as well. For now you will be able to see those pictures directly embedded into the elsua‘s template on the bottom right of the screen.

If you would want to see a larger picture of the thumbnail just click on it and it will upload the original picture as it was taken. However, notice as well that I do have the original copy with the original file size but because most of them are over 2MB big, each, I am not going to share them there just yet. If you would be interested in any of the pictures just post a comment into this thread or send me an e-mail and I will send it out to you.

Ok, that was it ! Now go and enjoy some of the most beautiful things this island has got to offer: the North West coastline, Barranco de Berrazales, God’s Finger (El Dedo De Dios) and Barranco de Silva (where you can see the tallest bridge of the island), respectively.
