What are we looking for?

In the dark, there are only shadows and figures. In our lives under regular circumstances we prefer the light. We are pleased, whether it is the brightness of the moon or the intense dawn. Then we are also bearers of our own lights and ideas, illuminating each other.

Moonrise

I particularly love the balance between the light of the Moon and the sky that has not completely darkened yet. Here, I captured in the margins of Alcabrichel River the mirroring of the cliff of Maceira on the calm waters with beautiful reflections of moonlight.

Comet 46P/ Wirtanen – “Ghostly Green Comet”

I am sharing my take on the passage of this little comet 49P/Wirtanen, also known as the “Ghostly Green Comet”. On December 16, 2018, Wirtanen passed 11,620,000 km from Earth (it will be the closest to Earth in 70 years).

Also visible in the photo are the Pleiades (the seven sisters), or M45, in the constellation Taurus.

A starry moonlight night at Maceira, where we can only listen to the noises of the night birds and the wind gently passing through the trees. Fireflies join you on this quiet stroll.

Nature is powerful and awesome. A thunderstorm by the sea at night is one of the most spectacular moments I ever had photographed. At that time, at Porto Novo Beach, the sea was very calm and it wasn’t raining during the thunderstorm.

A natureza é poderosa e incrível. Uma trovoada no mar durante a noite é um dos momentos mais espetaculares que alguma vez fotografei. Quando tirei esta fotografia, na Praia de Porto Novo, o mar estava muito calmo e não chovia.
