Monchique

Last September, Jacqui and myself stayed in the town of Monchique between the hills of the Algarve Portugal. A great location with stunning views of the coastline in the south. In the evening, while having a delicious dinner, you could see the flickering lights of  Portimão and Lagos in the distance.

Like most inland towns in Portugal, Monchique still has lots of character.

Inspiring Posbank

As you were able to see in posts of the past, a place I really adore is the Posbank. It is an inspiring place all year long, especially in August, when the heather is blooming. Photographers, walkers and cyclers come from all angles to witness its beauty. It is just great to have this on my doorstep.

Garrus beach Ireland

This June, I visited Ireland again and in the late afternoon of the 20th I went to Garrus beach, just a couple of kilometers west of Tramore. Again a wonderful spot of the Copper coast which stretches from Tramore to Dungarvan. This geopark is still undiscovered territory for most of the tourists. After being chased by some bulls, I managed to get on top of the cliffs and witnessed a spectacular view. At first it was cloudy but just before the sun was setting, it peeked through the clouds creating beautiful light over the scene. I definitely will come back in winter time when the sun will rise over the sea (and the bulls are gone).

Hope you like the pictures. Select picture to enlarge !!

Coast of Zeeland

During my work in the provence of Zeeland, unfortunately the possibilities to explore with the camera where very limited.

Last Saturday I finally had to opportunity to make some pictures of the North sea waves, broken by the line of poles on the beach.

Please find below some images, the majority taken with a 6-step ND filter to emphasize the movement in the waves.

By selecting the picture, you can enlarge it. Thank you for watching.

Fire in the sky

Together with neighbor Fred, I went on Monday evening the 14th of February to the Posbank. A day before I spotted during a long walk a new location on the Posbank to make pictures of a sunset. How little did I know that the moment for this occasion was already the next day. The high clouds looked already very promising but when the sun disappeared nature presented us the most beautiful display of colors.

Find the series of that evening from the moment the sun disappeared till the final display of colors.
