Yesterday evening, I headed down to Praia das Cabanas Velhas which is in between Burgau and Salema on the Algarve south coast in hope of some colours at sunset. It was a trek across the large pebbles and rocks on this beach to head to the location with the possibility of the tide cutting off the walk back, so a route up the cliff and along the top was planned. The tide didn’t quite cut the route back, but still chose the cliff option with some spectacular views of dusk setting in.
The exposed rocks were covered with snails and the colours didn’t disappoint.
This week’s featured print is a shot of dusk at the amazing seaside village of Burgau. Whilst I was taking this shot, I could hear the group of people sat at the table near the slope to the beach commenting that they hoped that “The photograph won’t fall from the cliff”. I was in a safe place but it may have looked a bit dangerous from their position.
Fast forward a few days and I was displaying this image as part of my stand at the Aljezur International School Christmas Fair. The group had came to the fair and noticed the photo, when they read the information badge showing the date, they instantly realised that it was them in the photography. Of course, they purchased an A3 sized framed print as a memory!
The dusk colours were amazing that evening which made the photograph a great image of a great coastal gem.
As always, the Featured Image has a discount across all variations.
Another location ticked off! I was shooting a drone video for my Real Estate venture (FotoSul) on Friday in Burgau and decided to wait until sunset to capture another wish list shot. The weather was fantastic, almost too fantastic as I like a little cloud in my sunset shots but the colours were yet again amazing. I set myself up on the cliff overlooking the village and shot both sunset and dusk. If you like them, they are already available to purchase in the Web Shop
The village of Burgau is a little treasure, although on the South Coast, it is well away from the busy tourist resorts.
