Let the Light Pass... - Belmonte, #Portugal

While I'm waiting for my new iMac to be delivered, here is another shot from the Nikon D3200 archives.
I remember it was the end of a stormy day at Belmonte, and this was a too dramatic sunset to be missed out...

There is Light in the Core - Belmonte, #Portugal

Just found in the archives another shot from last Summer vacations at Belmonte, and taken with my old Nikon D3200 camera. Post processed in Lightroom 5.

Happy weekend friends!

Preparing for the Big Thing - Barcarena, #Portugal

As you may know (or not) +Miguel Almeida, +Fabs Fabian and myself are preparing a joint Photo Exhibition at Fábrica da Pólvora de Barcarena in Portugal. The grand opening is this Saturday 5th of April at 16.00h. Until then we are preparing the place with lightning, plants, hanging the photos on the wall and figuring out which food to include in the catering for the inauguration. It's a lot of fun and this shot is part of a time lapse we are preparing to show you all.  
If you are in the area and feel like showing up we'll be delighted to have you...
The big tamale will end on the 18th of May...
See ya :)

Windy Cape - Cabo da Roca, #Portugal

Digging the archives once more, I just found this reminder of a windy afternoon spent at the most Western point of continental Europe: Cabo da Roca. Taken in February 2013 with my old Nikon D3200. It rained all day and a couple of hours before the evening the wind cleared the mist and we could see a sharp horizon at a distance. I just love the Ocean...

Sunny Day - Burgos, #Spain

From last year trip to France. We usually stop in Burgos for the night and this one was taken just after we left the luggage at the Hotel. I just love to walk the streets of Burgos. They are full of life. And color too. This is Plaza Mayor just before sundown.
