January saw my wife and I taking a week long holiday to Lanzarote, some winter sun was very much in need. As it would happen the airport was a short 10 minutes walk from our hotel so it would have been sinful not to make a trip to it at least once, or twice 🙂

There may be more areas to photograph this airport but the two I have found are just at the approach lights at the start of runway 03 and just up the hill from this location. At the approach lights it is quite possible to photograph with a wide angle lens and still get superb images. From the hill you can see on to the taxi way to 03 but need a longer lens to photograph the aircraft.

The best time to shoot, I found, was in the hour before the sun set. With the clouds and the setting sun the scene couldn’t have been any better.

I saw, and photographed, a few military aircraft but as with any international airport the majority of the traffic is civilian.
