This shot was one of my most satisfying ones to date. Earlier in the day I had predicted a colourful sunset due to the high thin clouds but about an hour before sunset lots of much thicker high clouds rolled in. However, I trusted my instinct and headed to a favourite spot just outside the city of Silves that has an amazing view of the Castle and Cathedral and waited. The sunset was a little disappointing as the thick clouds remained, however, by the time the “2nd sunset” arrived (usually 10 to 20 minutes after sunset) the clouds had started to clear and the sky lit up in a collection of colours.
I underexposed the shot to create a magical silhouette of the Castle and Cathedral against this magnificent backdrop.
I have produced 2 new Special Edition Prints (just 1 of each are available) that are now available to purchase. Both prints are printed on acrylic in a large 60x40cm dimension.
Acrylic is an expensive printing process which is printed directly onto 3mm thick acrylic and then sealed with a white background giving a stunning polished frameless look with real depth. It creates a view as if the image is back-lit which really makes the colours stand out to the viewer. I am able to offer local pickup here in São Marcos da Serra or I will personally deliver within a small radius of the central Algarve region, I can also deliver to the town of Ourique in the Alentejo.
No matter how hard I try, the beauty of these acrylic prints cannot be appreciated by a photograph and viewing is also available, please Contact Me to discuss this, the Coffee is on me!
Please note, there is only 1 print available of each image so be quick!
The first image I chose to produce was Waves At Dusk. This image was taken on Praia de São Rafael just after sunset and captures the waves washing back out to sea.
It’s taken a long time updating the entire web shop, but all of my available prints are now available to purchase framed in either 50x40cm (A3 Print) or 50x30cm (A4 Print) and come in 4 colour choices of Black, Silver, White and Wood. You may even notice images being updated to include smaller 20x15cm frames, again, all prints will be available in this size within the next few days.
At this stage, framed prints are only available to either be collected from here at the Quinta near São Marcos da Serra (by appointment only) or I can arrange a meet & greet in the central Algarve area. For a small fee, I maybe able to personally deliver to your location outside of the central Algarve location (rest of the Algarve and lower Alentejo only), please Contact Me for more information.
I am also now able to offer a viewing gallery for your chosen print along with any other prints available to purchase right here at the Quinta, again, this is strictly by appointment only.
The Webshop also gives you the chance to view a print in a digital impression of your choice of frame size and colour.
Back in June I displayed at the International Show at Fatacil, Lagoa and I created a one-off collection showcasing some of my European Bee-Eater photos from 2018 and 2019.
It has been created as a never to be reproduced collection. Whilst there was a great deal of interest in this collection it remained unsold at the show. This collection is mounted in a white deep box frame measuring 30x90cm with each of the 5 photographs measuring 13x18cm.
It is now available to purchase as a unique single edition in the Web Shop. Please note, as with all my framed prints, this is collection (or meet and greet in Central Algarve) only.
