Sunset Palm

I was relaxing in the garden after the excitement of hearing a colony of Bee-eaters returning to the area when I realised that the clouds were going to provide a colourful sunset so I set the camera up using a Palm Tree in the foreground as a silhouette and waited.

It really didn’t disappoint! Our sunset in the hills is about 10 minutes earlier due to the ridges, this can sometimes provide some amazing colours.

Super Worm Equinox Moon Rise

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestmail

A few weeks ago I hoped to get a shot of February’s Super Moon rising above a ruined Windmill here in the Algarve Hills, however, clouds put a stop to that. Therefore, I had already planned the shot for March’s Worm Moon.

The Full Moon in March is called a Worm Moon due to folklore that believed that the ground frost would melt and the Earthworms would start to emerge. Today is also the Spring Equinox and therefore the name Super Worm Equinox Moon has been given, quite a mouthful!

This afternoon I was in place almost an hour before the Moon would appear above the Windmill. A few small changes of position put me in line for the Moon to rise directly behind the Windmill.

The Start Of The End Of The Day

Before you read on, a word of warning! If you are hoping to take a similar photo shown below, please do not look through the viewfinder of a DSLR, it will seriously damage your eye!

Ok, that is out of the way……. Today was another hot spring day in the Algarve and even more so in the Northern Hills. Late afternoon, the strong sun was beginning to set and just before it disappeared behind the ridges of the hills I took this shot directly into it and captured the fantastic glow it was giving. Of course, the sky wasn’t orange at this point, but because it was taken at 400mm only a small portion of the sky is visible, hence why the sun is also huge.
