The Lighthouse

Voguence-Linda Wendel-Fuerteventura-Lighthouse6

“I do not wish to be sad any longer,
and cry of woe for evermore.
He will return after all these years
from the far away and darkest seas.
The flowers are blooming in my garden
and wait with me for his return
and even if he´s far and I´m crying,
up in the lighthouse the fires burn.
Once the time will come, that we will hold again
´cause our love, my sailor man,
never has an end”

(Free translation of a Dutch fisherman song from the 17th century)

Shooting Location: Punta de Tostón, Fuerteventura, Canary Islands

This time we chose this picturesque lighthouse as our shooting background. With it´s bright red colour and timeless architecture it was surely worth the bumpy ride. We took the North track where some of the best surf spots of the island are to be found. The lighthouse, that also contains the ’Museo de la Pesca’, can be easier reached from El Cotillo a coastal town 4km down south. But that´s what you get if your Photographer is also surfing.
We did our shooting on a Monday – the only day the fishing museum is closed. Being there on your own, you get a feeling of walking into a movie scene or a passage out of a romantic book.
The weather was a challenge though. Using only the natural evening light made it difficult, as the sky was continually changing between cloudy and sunny due to the ever-blowing winds. In these conditions, you have to constantly adjust the exposure and shutter speed of the camera. Busy time for the photographer and a little payback for the bumpy ride ;-)
Once the light was fading we were able to make some landscape pics of the lighthouse in the glowing sunset. A perfect ending.
