Early last year I visited the Algarve during a photo tour by www.paulosilvalandscapephotography.com. It made me fall in love with Portugal. Now I am looking forward to returning and this time doing a phototour with Paulo of the nort-west area including Porto, Aveiro and the coast (24-28 Nov). There are still some spots left if anyone cares to join. www.paulosilvalandscapephotography.com/porto-aveiro-photo....
Soft pre-sunrise colours at Praia da Marinha, Algarve, Portugal.
One of my favourite photos of last year. I took it at Praia da Marinha during a memorable sunrise. Four times I went to this location to capture sunrise, two times I got wet, one time I got decent light and on the fourth morning I got extraordinary light.
Moments like these are the reason why I never have problems getting up early to head to a location. Even if 9 out of 10 times the magic doesn't happen, when it does it's such an additctive feeling that will get me out of bed the next 10 times ;-)
The wonderful view along Praia da Marinha during an intense Sunrise. It took me one week to get this photo. First there was the scouting and some test shots the day after we arrived at the algarve. The next three mornings I got up there early to photograph a decent sunrise but instead I got drenched two times and the third attempt ended in ok light, but nothing fully satisfying. So I went back there a fourth time on the last day of our vacation and was served this display of light.
I was so happy to witness this!
