Holiday time again and Fuerteventura for a week.

This is my 4th time on the "Rock" now and I just love it. It is such an easy place to navigate having on 2 or 3 main roads which take you top to bottom, side to side with trunk roads to the villages and coastal ports. If you enjoy driving and great weather, it's well worth going.

The temperatures at this time of year average 24deg C; it was 30deg C plus every day I was there, I was well cooked after 2 days, and burnt after 3; this didn't stop the photography though.
I managed to fill over 11gb of CF cards in 7 days, everything from birds and animals, to scenery, abstract and lava.

I purchased a new lens specifically for this trip, a Nikon 17-55mm f2.8 DX, it was a fantastic performer in every situation, it was glued to the camera 90% of the trip.

Enough of the talk, enjoy the trip through my travelogue, any Island information is available in my previous travelogue to Fuerte.

Thanks for popping in, Gary
