On Friday after an amazing session at Ponta da Piedade I decided to also shoot a sunset at Carvoeiro. So after scouting during the afternoon I returned before sunset to shoot.
The actual sunset was a bit disappointing as some haze arrived (see 2nd photo), but I stayed for the “2nd sunset”, the time around 20 minutes after sunset which can turn any haze amazing colours. I wasn’t disappointed and snapped this great colourful shot.
This first photo, titled “Final Daylight” is available to purchase (framed and unframed) in the Web Shop, click HERE to purchase.
This is a photo from back in February 2018. It was originally just a test shot to confirm the shutter speed with a filter attached, however, I’ve always loved the way the waves are washing over the rocks.
Therefore, as it’s yet another rainy day, I have decided to process this image and it is also now available for sale in print (framed or unframed). Click HERE for the product page.
Starting this Saturday (19th September 2020) my new exhibition is running at “The Bungalow” at the Carvoeiro Tennis Club. There is a selection of my work, including limited edition acrylics on display and of course are available to purchase.
The opening coincides with the open day at the Bungalow which is a therapy and beauty centre with various services available such as acupunture, massage and beauty. I will be at the open day so please come along from 11am onwards to say hello.
If you can’t make Saturday, the exhibition will run for at least the next two months, so plenty of time to take a look. Don’t rely on my mobile phone shots below, please come and look for yourself.
This shoot was probably my most challenging sunset yet. I wanted to shoot the Farol de Alfanzina (Alfanzina Lighthouse) but also be able to capture the rays of beam. I spent around 3 hours on the cliff to the east of the Lighthouse yesterday afternoon as I prepared the shoot (more information about the shot below).
Should you wish to purchase a print, it is already available in the shop!
We had our first social meet last Saturday of the Algarve Photo Fun Group that I host on Facebook. It was a small gathering at Algar Seco on the cliffs above Carvoerio where we walked and talked photography (and many other things). We even took a few photographs too! Later on, we headed down to the square in Carvoeiro for lunch.
If you have an interest in photography and are also in the Algarve (permanently, visit or even holiday here) come and join the Algarve Photo Fun Facebook Group.
We hope to organise more of these social meets in the future, the next is being discussed right now!
Although I wasn’t there to work, I never pass an opportunity for a shot. We walked along the Algar Seco boardwalk on the cliffs above Carvoerio and I wandered down one of the paths to the small caves and was fascinated by one of the views so I waited and waited and waited for the right moment when no people were visible and shot this.
