Out of the Cave



Hiking the Roque Nublo was the initial goal, but turned out to be a mission impossible. The iconic mountain of Gran Canaria is fully covered in thick layers of fog. Rain is relentless, lashing down from the dark sky.

I’m soaked, seeking shelter, so I climb up right into the dry safety of a cave inside a gigantic rock formation. Little holes in the wall, some filled with little sticks and leaves combined to nests.

So far I didn’t get a single shot. No point getting the cam out. Light’s bad, rain’s bad, visibility’s bad. I turn around and the whole beauty of the forest presents itself in front of me, fittingly framed by the walls of the cave. Finally an image!
