A photo of last year showing the famous sunsets of Agaete.
These kind of sunsets mostly happen during october and november. The rest of the year they are seldom interesting.
Agaete is almost the only village on the north-west side of the Island, the next one is El Risco after 20 min drive and then comes San Nicolas, called La Aldea, but this village is at the other side of the dragons tail (mountains) The nice thing about this is that we have no light pollution on this side of the Island.
We have an ineresting flora here, but the fauna is very limited, even on the coast there are few seabirds.

Thanks for looking

Hello Karin,
What a wonderful sunset in fabulous colours. I like your composition and the way you've cropped it. It's not often you find a place along the coastline these days where there is no light pollution!
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

Wonderfull mystic landscape Karin. Dark shadows and strong contrast to red tones makes the sunset very dramatic.TFS

Hello Karin,
An excellent sunset capture with amazing details in the sky!
I like the lines in the composition, and the colour palette is eye-catching...
Good division sea/sky and a fine sense of depth in the image!

Wow Karin

what a stunning sunset. Late Autumn and Winter often produce some stunning sunsets and sunrises (actually my preferred of the 2)

The layers with the islands are excellent at add that sense of depth that is so often missing from sunsets/sunrises.


Hallo Karin
What a brilliant shot. The sky looks like it is glowing with heat with this spectacular sunset. The colours are warm and vibrant, as if it was burning from the heat of the shining sun. In a way it actually looks quite scary to me. The black silhouette is great, and the different displays of colours from yellows, pinks, mauves to reds are beautiful. Excellent detail in this dramatic shot, that gives the impression of multiple rockets in the sky. Thanks for sharing, and have an enjoyable day.
Best regards
