Purple Sunset From A Few Nights Ago

It’s looking like it may be a great sunset tonight which reminded me that I didn’t share a photo from a few nights ago.

I sat near a Cork Oak and waited until the moment the sky changed from orange to darkness and captured it with a purple haze giving a nice light. These colours within photos often look a little strange which I think is due to the fact that the sky only stays this colour for a very short time.

A few weeks ago, I was up before sunrise to get some mist filled valley shots but the mist was just too thick, you may remember this post.

I stumbled across another photo which at the time I didn’t like so never published anywhere, however, I have now changed my mind and here it is. The sun was rising to the right of the photo causing a purple haze to shine through the mist. The trees are Cork Oak and you can see where the bark has been harvested at the bottoms.

Misty Morning

After (more) rain yesterday and a slight increase in temperature, I thought that we’d get a misty morning in the hills this morning. The forecast was for clear skies, so a perfect opportunity for photographs looking over misty valleys.

I was up way before first light and headed to high ground in hope I would be above the mist, I wasn’t. It was thick mist everywhere, the sun came up and I couldn’t tell the difference. I gave up and reverted to Plan B. I pointed the camera at an old dead Cork Oak Tree and waited until the sun was strong enough to just about shine through.

Serra Sunrise

Twighlight had just started when I set off this morning to a local ridge that I’d scouted yesterday. Setup the tripod and camera (D810, AF-S 24-70mm f/2.8 and “Cheap as Chips” Remote) with about 30 minutes until the sun was to appear above the serra ridges to the East.

I sat and watched a some stunning colours before the sun started to poke above the mountains and walked away with this shot.

In the foreground is my local village, São Marcos da Serra preparing for another warm October day.
