p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Tenerife 2013 with Nex-6


As last year my GF and I visited tenerife for two weeks and i would like to share some pictures form the trip.

My kit: Nex-6, V15, G28, G45, Minolta MD 135/2.8

for the first three nights we stayed in the Albergue Montes de Anaga on top of the Anaga mountain range.

Day 1: arriving and a short trip
We arrived at about 3pm at our hostel and my GF was a bit ill so i made a short walk in the forest alone. It was foggy and the light a bit flat.

a short gab i the clouds lets me see the northcoast


how the forest looked like:




my favorite picture of the day:


dinner:


Day 2: from Taganana to Casa Forestal
view towards san andres, taken on our hostels terrace


the weather that day was quite nice and we decided to do a walk on the north coast which started in Taganana


looking towards Roque de las Bordegas




most of the old fields in Tenerife are not longer used, but these ones were:


in the village:


a 3-legged cat


local fauna:




the way back led us trough a beautiful forest:

Captured them really well. Lovely tones and textures. We go to Tenerife most years for a holiday. Your photos have made me want to go back and do some trekking!

I happen to live in the Canary Islands. I love (as I did with your pictures last year) to see my homeland through your lens. Thanks for sharing...

Nice ass!

I really like the 135/2.8 shots. Especially your first and second to last shots with it in this series.

I like it. A bit too many random touristy shots, but I really like the first one,
I hope you don't mind I tried to make it a bit more dramatic...

i like your version better than mine :-)

you are right, i decided to to not to be too selective and show more pictures to tell a better story. if this was only about showing my best pictures from the trip i wouldn't have shown half of these pictures.

@plasticmotif last minute i decided to leave the MD 100/2.5 at home and take the 135 instead and i really like the results. Funny how a 50 lens gave me at least as good results as my three other 300 lenses.

Ordinary tourists don't take photos like these. Tourists takes photos of famous architecture using the built in flash from 500m away, or they give the camera to someone to take a snap of themselves in front of any random statue. That or whatever cute cats or donkeys they come across. Oh wait...

Random touristy shots? What medication are you on? Having been to Tenerife each year for many years I can tell you that these aren't tourist shots. These are great shots nicely sought out!

Hi Phillip,

A nice series of shots, especially the views. You have managed to show a completely different view of Tenerife!

I was wondering if you bounced the 15mm Voigtlander shots through corner fix?

Thanks

Andrew

Love your Tenerife images - nothing "touristy" about them, they provide a wonderful feel for the place.

we tried hard to stay away from were the masses of tourists are, which worked quite well.
