The ideal sunset is not the one you see and wish you could have been there, but the one we watch and store in our memories. It may not have been the most intense, but it is ideal because it is part of our experiences.
beyond the dunes and cliffs of the coastal zone of Porto Novo and Santa Rita, the hills rise as a result of tectonic activity of a singular peculiarity, becoming an icon of the region. A contrast between the verdant green of native species and the blue where the land ends and the sea begins, as Luís Vaz de Camões wrote.

Uma das coisas que a natureza proporciona ao fotógrafo é a infinidade de possibilidades de fotografar o mesmo local em condições várias. Nesta sequência, em dias diferentes, fotografei um dos miradouros da Praia de Santa Cruz, onde a paisagem muda a cada instante que passa.
Santa Cruz Moonlight
One of the things Nature provides to the photographer are the endless possibilities of shooting the same place under various conditions. In this sequence, on different days, I photographed one of the viewpoints of Praia de Santa Cruz, where the landscape changes with each passing moment.
Uma pequena baía situada próxima de Maceira no concelho de Torres Vedras. Local relacionado com as Invasões Francesas e a Batalha do Vimeiro, onde também desagua o Rio Alcabrichel. Retrato, aqui, a beleza do luar nesta praia que também é um ícone da região.
Moonset at Praia de Porto Novo
There’s a small bay nearby Maceira, Torres Vedras. A beach related to the French Invasions and the Battle of Vimeiro, where Alcabrichel River flows too. Here, I portray the beauty of the moonlight at this beach which is a regional icon.
Here the representation of the four elements: Earth, Water, Air and Fire. Fire being a distant element, yet well present on life’s evolution that the Sun has made possible.
Eis a representação dos quatro elementos Terra, Água, Ar e Fogo. Sendo o fogo um elemento longínquo mas ainda assim bem presente na evolução da vida que o Sol proporcionou.
