Sunset Tonight In The Algarve Hills

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestmail

The sun was lowering in the sky and I noticed it was setting with a nice ridge line framing it, so I grabbed the camera with 500mm lens and underexposed by one stop to create the silhouette effect. At first, I was disappointed when a small cloud rolled in to cover the sun and almost didn’t take the shot, but actually, I think it adds something mysterious to it.

I’ve been thinking about this shot for a while, but if I’m honest, it was more to get a White Stork family with juveniles in the shot. However, when I arrived and pair were standing facing each other it worked even better.

The sun is directly behind the nest creating this amazing back-lit silhouette of the White Storks sitting on the nest. Standing a fair distance away and using a long lens (500mm) created the sun to be almost the same size as the nest. I love the way it looks like the streetlight is lit too, it wasn’t.

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.

Colourful Sunset & Moonrise

Yesterday afternoon a thin haze, high in the sky was developing which usually results in a colourful sunset. I headed to the nearby Sapeira to get a shot of the sunset with the river bridge in the foreground. The colours did not disappoint with the sun lighting up the haze, as a bonus when I turned around to start packing up the Cold Moon (the name given to December’s Full Moon) was rising with the fading sunset still providing some colour.
