The Start Of The End Of The Day

Before you read on, a word of warning! If you are hoping to take a similar photo shown below, please do not look through the viewfinder of a DSLR, it will seriously damage your eye!

Ok, that is out of the way……. Today was another hot spring day in the Algarve and even more so in the Northern Hills. Late afternoon, the strong sun was beginning to set and just before it disappeared behind the ridges of the hills I took this shot directly into it and captured the fantastic glow it was giving. Of course, the sky wasn’t orange at this point, but because it was taken at 400mm only a small portion of the sky is visible, hence why the sun is also huge.

White Stork Silhouetted By The Setting Sun

I’ve been thinking about this shot for a while. I have had to wait until the spring sun is lined up and tonight I decided to get a shot of the sun setting behind the ridge silhouetting the Stork nest on the disused Bakery chimney in São Marcos da Serra. It was also great to be able to have a Stork landing too.

Sunset Session At The Beach!

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestmail

I keep telling myself that I don’t take enough Seascape shots so whilst I was in Balaia Golf Resort on the weekend taking (Real Estate Shots, I decided to head to Praia de São Rafael for the sunset.

I arrived well before sunset to also use the opportunity to take some product shots of my new Photography Bean Bags which will be launched later today!

Of course, after living here for over 2.5 years, even though the temperatures were mid 20s, it was a nice surprise to see people sunbathing and even swimming in the sea! Soon enough the sun started to lower in the sky and most of the sun-cravers started to leave the beach and replaced by sunset watchers. I set myself up near the iconic rock in the centre of the beach and waited. The result of the session was the following 4 photographs which are shown below in time order. All are available in print in the Shop, please see individual links below each image.

First, the sun just about to dip below the west cliff.

Long Exposure Sunset

I had just finished working on a new feature at my “A Rocha” area, more details soon, and I noticed that the sky was turning into a stunning colour-fest. A quick grab of the camera and I noticed that although the wind at ground level was calm the clouds were moving south quickly.

I decided to try something different and take a long exposure of a colourful sunset to blur the moving clouds.

Long Exposure Sunset

Finally, A Typical Algarve Serra Sunset

The sunsets here in the hills have been a little disappointing recently, however, tonight made up for it. The high wispy clouds providing the canvas for some stunning colours. I wasn’t prepared, but there’s always something to nearby to create a silhouette shot. This time one of our Palm Trees in the garden.

Light Fades On The Fallen

I was convinced there would be a great sunset tonight and headed up on Eagle Ridge. For those that have been on one of my Free Nature Walks In The Algarve that includes Eagle Ridge will know where I mean!

Yet again, we have what appears to be a hazy cloud that arrives near the horizon at sunset spoiling the perfect Algarvian sunset, however, I stayed around to capture what colour there was in the sky.

The tree on the right is a Cork Oak and also the dead tree is too.

This image is also available to purchase in A4 and A3 prints in the Shop.
