This shot was one of my most satisfying ones to date. Earlier in the day I had predicted a colourful sunset due to the high thin clouds but about an hour before sunset lots of much thicker high clouds rolled in. However, I trusted my instinct and headed to a favourite spot just outside the city of Silves that has an amazing view of the Castle and Cathedral and waited. The sunset was a little disappointing as the thick clouds remained, however, by the time the “2nd sunset” arrived (usually 10 to 20 minutes after sunset) the clouds had started to clear and the sky lit up in a collection of colours.
I underexposed the shot to create a magical silhouette of the Castle and Cathedral against this magnificent backdrop.
I have produced 2 new Special Edition Prints (just 1 of each are available) that are now available to purchase. Both prints are printed on acrylic in a large 60x40cm dimension.
Acrylic is an expensive printing process which is printed directly onto 3mm thick acrylic and then sealed with a white background giving a stunning polished frameless look with real depth. It creates a view as if the image is back-lit which really makes the colours stand out to the viewer. I am able to offer local pickup here in São Marcos da Serra or I will personally deliver within a small radius of the central Algarve region, I can also deliver to the town of Ourique in the Alentejo.
No matter how hard I try, the beauty of these acrylic prints cannot be appreciated by a photograph and viewing is also available, please Contact Me to discuss this, the Coffee is on me!
Please note, there is only 1 print available of each image so be quick!
The first image I chose to produce was Waves At Dusk. This image was taken on Praia de São Rafael just after sunset and captures the waves washing back out to sea.
This week’s feature print started off as an experiment in March that resulted in an amazing image.
The Spring sunset was turning very colourful due to some high clouds. Although the wind level on the ground was low, the high clouds were moving at a fast rate. I decided to take a long exposure to blur the clouds. It turned into a spectacular image with some fantastic colours contrasted by the silhouette of the ridge line.
As with all Featured Prints, grab yourself a discounted purchase. This image is available in two sizes either unframed or framed with a choice of 4 colours!
