Moody Sunset

Facebooktwittermail

I was scouting the Algarve’s south coast yesterday for some locations an decided to head to Praia de São Lourenço, a tiny cove beach near Galé to hopefully get a “2nd sunset” shot. A 2nd sunset can occur anywhere up to 30 minutes after the sun has dissappeared below the horizon where the sun’s rays light up the sky. There were a few clouds ready for the show, however, it didn’t happen.

On it’s way down to the horizon the sun poked through the clouds providing an incredible contrasting light. Although I dint get the shot I was hoping for, I did come away with this amazing view.

I was on a scouting mission for some sunrise and sunset shots today and although it was an overcast day with terrible light I decided to find a heart at the famous Arco Natural near Praia da Marinha.

There are a few locations along the clifftop that are well-known for making a heart shape, but I wanted to find something a little different and came up with this shot, keeping the horrible sky out of the frame. It’s a long exposure shot using Natural Density filters to smooth out the movement of the sea.
