A New Day In The Algarve Serra

Yesterday morning I was up before the sun as I had to get ready for a 1-to-1 Workshop, the skies were clear and it was looking like a good sunrise so I gulped down a Coffee and headed outside.

Although sunrise was 7:14am, it took over 20 minutes before it appeared over the ridges of the Serra and it certainly didn’t disappoint.

Young Cork Oak at Sunset

It’s been another hot day here in the Northern Hills with the temperature reaching 35 degree, the clear skies looked promising for a typical Algarve sunset. I headed to a nearby ridge to find a Cork Oak to photograph against the setting sun. I found this young Cork Oak that is yet to have its first harvest of Cork. The tree needs to be at least 30 years old before the first harvest is carried out.

I liked the way its canopy framed the setting sun so set up the camera and waited until the sun was just disappearing behind the Benafátima ridge. The distant peak you can see to the left of the tree trunk is Fóia, the Algarve’s highest point.
