Silves Sempre…!

When I have some spare time, I often have a play around in Photoshop as there is so many things to learn and keep up to date with.

This morning, I thought of an idea to create some digital art and combine both Wildlife and a sunset in the same image. So I decided to create “Silves Sempre…” which translates to Silves Always.

The main photograph is from Sunset Over Castelo De Silves taken back in September 2019. Silves is well-known for it’s White Stork population and therefore I used an in-flight shot of a White Stork, also shot in Silves as a layer mask to create something a little different.

Very postcard like I think.

Igreja De Nossa Senhora Da Rocha

Whilst I waited for the sun to set for my Christmas Photo, I decided to shoot a photograph when the setting sun was directly behind the Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Rocha. For those that are not aware, this is a small church situated right on the end of a small headland near Porches. It is very popular with Algarve weddings.

The Gulls seemed to know exactly where to fly to make the shot even more interesting.

This is available to purchase in print (framed or unframed) in the Web Shop. MORE INFO…

Sunset At Carvoeiro

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.

Sunset At Praia de Vale Centeanes

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.

Moody Sunset

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.

This photograph is available in print. Read more….
