Since very young I developed a passion towards Arrábida. It’s such a fantastic beach, not to mention the whole mountain range. 
I was really lucky to have born in Setúbal. This was my playground as a teenager...

Two Boats - Setúbal, #Portugal
(Click on the photo to view it large)

English/Português

Photo description:
I took this shot at the so called Industrial Area of Mitrena, in the outskirts of Setúbal. It has a few rare and remaining spots where the original sand beach, that once was the whole waterfront of the city, survived the commercial or industrial piers and docks. A few fisherman still keep their boats there.
It’s a fantastic place to shoot the sunset and gaze at the glamorous Tróia and Arrábida mountains from afar...

Descrição da foto:
Tirei esta foto na chamada Zona Industrial da Mitrena, nos arredores de Setúbal. Tem ainda uns poucos e raros troços da praia original, que constituía toda a zona ribeirinha da cidade, e que sobreviveram aos cais e docas comerciais ou industriais. Uns quantos pescadores ainda têm aí os seus barcos.
É um local fantástico para fotografar o pôr-do-sol e vislumbrar as glamorosas Tróia e a Serra da Arrábida ao longe...

Technical details/Detalhes técnicos:
Camera: Nikon D7100

A Sunset by the Slime - Setúbal, #Portugal
(Click on the photo to view it large)

English/Português

Photo description:
Another capture of the sunset taken on the 1st of April in Setúbal. It’s the same spot where I took The End of a Day (http://goo.gl/M9bXzb) but in this case the composition is more focused on the foreground and its slimy details rather than the sky.

Descrição da foto:
Mais uma captura do pôr-do-sol do 1º de Abril. É no mesmo local onde tirei The End of a Day (http://goo.gl/M9bXzb) mas neste caso a composição está mais focada no primeiro plano, e nos seus pormenores viscosos, do que no céu.

Blue River by Night - Setúbal, #Portugal
(Click on the photo to view it large)

English/Português

Photo description:
Setúbal is know as the “City of the Blue River” because most of the time the Sado river is indeed very blueish. Like here in this photo that I took a few days ago. 
This waterfront is pretty recent. It is less than 100 years old. Before it was built, this area was mainly a sand beach. You can check it out here in this old painting:
http://www.prof2000.pt/users/avcultur/Postais3/Setubal/002_Setubal.jpg
I was born here in Setúbal. Every time I come back, I can’t help but to feel so lucky. What a beautiful place to be welcomed into this planet...

Descrição da foto:
Setúbal é conhecida como a "Cidade do Rio Azul” porque o rio Sado está quase sempre dessa cor. Tal como nesta foto que tirei há uns dias.
Esta frente ribeirinha é relativamente recente. Tem menos de 100 anos. Antes de ser construída, esta zona era essencialmente uma praia. Podem ver isso nesta gravura antiga:
http://www.prof2000.pt/users/avcultur/Postais3/Setubal/002_Setubal.jpg
Eu nasci aqui em Setúbal. Cada vez que cá volto não posso deixar de me sentir felizardo. Que lugar lindo para ser acolhido neste planeta…

Convento da Arrábida - Setúbal, #Portugal
(Click on the photo to view it large)

English/Português

Photo description:
I was born in Setúbal. Every time I go back there I can’t help but to feel so lucky. What a beautiful place to be welcomed into this planet…
This is not the first photo I take from this beautiful 16th Century Convent and I hope it won’t be the last. It never stops to amaze me how peaceful and isolated this must have been  back when it was built. And you can imagine the gorgeous view it has over the Atlantic Ocean.

Descrição da foto: 
Nasci em Setúbal. Cada vez que volto lá não posso deixar de me sentir sortudo. Que lugar lindo para ser acolhido neste planeta…
Não é a primeira foto que tiro a este lindo Convento do Sec. XVI e espero que não seja a última. Nunca deixa de me espantar quão pacífico e isolado este local deve ter sido na altura em que foi construído. E bem podem imaginar a deslumbrante vista que tem sobre o Oceano Atlântico.

True compassion brings with it the dispelling of internal tensions, a state of calmness and serenity.
The Dalai Lama

This one is from the archives from a year ago. I still have a clear memory of this magical and glorious night and also this beautiful Moon rise over the Algarve mountains.

A verdadeira compaixão traz consigo a dissipação das tensões internas, um estado de calma e serenidade.

Esta foto é dos arquivos de há um ano atrás. Ainda hoje tenho uma clara memória desta mágica e gloriosa noite bem como deste lindo nascer da Lua sobre as serras algarvias.
