Rainbow Over Portimão

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

A heavy shower hit this morning just as I was getting back in the car from a sunrise shoot at Ferragudo. As I was about to reverse the car I noticed this rainbow in the mirror.

I grabbed the camera and took this very quick shot as it was actually pouring with rain at the time. I didn’t notice the 2nd rainbow, but the camera picked it up.

Wow, if it wasn’t for my friend Roy, I would have missed this. I was busy locked away in my studio which currently has no windows (I’m working on it!) and Roy sent a photo of the skies. I dropped everything headed outside and set the camera up at a storm rolling in. Could I get a lightning fork coming out of what looked like a scene from a Sci-Fi?

Oh yes, what a dramatic sunset tonight!

The Quinta Was A Natural Stadium For A Passing Storm

If you live in Portugal, you may have noticed we had some unexpected storms this afternoon. One particular storm passed to the north of the Quinta and as we are on top of a hill, our view north-east as the angry clouds passed us by was amazing.

I set the camera up to constantly take photos and I captured 8 separate strikes. It wasn’t one of our usual heavy, loud, wet and windy storms, but amazing to watch it pass us by.

Here are all 8 strikes merged into one photo.

Steam Fog On The River

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

Winter has hit the Algarve and whilst temperatures are still hitting 20+ during the days, the nights are cold.

Last night my sensor reached exactly 0.0 Celsius on my back terrace which meant that other areas locally dropped below freezing. There was a widespread frost that was stunning but my attention was directed at the Steam Fog Rising from the river.

Pre-Storm Sunset

Hurricane Leslie was kind to the Algarve deciding to stay out to sea off the West Coast on its passage towards Lisbon where it will reach ground. Up here in the hills of the Algarve, we can just about make out the weather front in the distance and it provided some colour in the sky.

For everyone in the path of the Hurricane, please keep safe and of course, keep your animals safe too!

A Very Loud and Wet Afternoon

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

I have been predicting a huge storm for a few days, today was the day. This morning it was a hot and sunny day and in the afternoon the temperature reached over 37 deg and the clouds began to build. The storm gathered and approached from the North East, over the hills from the Alentejo region. It moved very slowly, but when it finally got here it was loud. The strikes where coming to ground all around us. Imagine my surprise when I had an alert on my Fogo app (fire alerting app) that pinpointed a fire almost directly on our house. I went to the bottom of the drive to be greeted with the GNR and 5 Fire Trucks. They were called out for one of the strikes, but there doesn’t seem to be any damage and they spent the next hour checking the area for other evidence of strikes.

As the storm was slow-moving, I set the camera up and managed to capture this fork as it approached.
