Platform instability has been causing errors, slowness and breaking the layout of some of the pages. I am hunting down the problem but it still persists. My apologies for the inconvenience and bellow-par experience. The series of visits to Angola keeps on going, and trust me, I’m not complaining! This time, after a long preparation, and investigation I…
Caxias, Oeiras, Portugal
A mere 10 km from the city of Lisbon, Caxias is one of the Tagus river beaches, very close to the Atlantic ocean. A small bay, facing South, with two fortresses and small river gauge as the highlights. At the distance, we can see Bugio, the island-lighthouse that marks the union of the ocean and the river. Caxias is quite…
Louriçal, Cabo da Roca, Sintra-Cascais Natural Park, Portugal evening session
The session About 30 KM away from the center of the Portuguese capital city Lisbon, we reach the most western point of continental Europe. It is Cabo-da-Roca. A cape very sought out by the tourists. The parking and visiting area, is high on the cliffs, at about 150 meters above sea level. That is how much you have to go…

Picos da Europa expedition 2015: day 5
The night was calm and re-energizing. The hotel uses a generator for electricity that is shut down at mid-night. After that moment, absolute silence! Only the sound of the wind persists. Some adventurous fellows stayed up and made some nice night sky images. I’ll have to come back to this amazing place and stay here a bit longer for those types of images…
Now was the day for the high mountain glorious sunrise… or was it?
Picos da Europa expedition 2015: day 4
After an easy day with a wake up scheduled for 8:00, today was our last chance to make the sunrise at the Covadonga lakes. Thus, an early waky, waky 🙂
Picos da Europa expedition 2015: day 3
Day 2 was a long, exhausting day and as a group we decided to sleep a bit more this morning. We have participants of all ages and the fact that the drivers are also photographers, means no extra sleep for the wheel bearers.
Picos da Europa expedition 2015: day 2
The morning started early: after 3 hours of deep and fast sleep, the alarm clock went of at 5:00. And what a shock that was! The big difference I immediately felt was that after the milliseconds it took for me to acknowledge where I was and remembering what I was there to do, it took me no time to jump out of bed, grab a quick snack and some coffee from my thermal bottle and there I was – ready to rock and roll!
