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.
I have been wanting to shoot from this iconic Algarve viewpoint for a while and as I will be at the Christmas Fair at The Smokehouse & Tapas Bar in Carvoeiro on Sunday I thought it a good idea to have a local photograph to include in the display.
This evening I arrived early to setup for a “2nd Sunset” (the colourful sky after the sun has set) shot, but the clouds started rolling in so changed my plan for an actual sunset shot instead.
If you want to see this image in print and mounted, please come along on Sunday.
