Serra de Montejunto

Serra de Montejunto

A place once full of trees, battered by flames a few years ago. However, it remains intact at some places, where there is a set of species of fauna and flora characteristic of the region.

Walking in the countryside

Walking in the countryside

Walking in the countryside is much more than just walking. It is to engage in communion with nature and to meet beings and species that completely ignore the Man. Because they are in their habitat, focused on their lives and tasks, too busy to pay attention to the intruder.

Really near the infrared, which is not visible to us, there’s a spectrum that equipment can register. It is the light that is not seen, but is reflected by the foliage, so intensely that, under the right conditions, provides fantastic pink or white tones.

Wild Flowers

A burst of tones in these natural planted seaside gardens. In the distance, you can see the nuances of flowers. However, as you walk you can see them closer and closer to the point where you can smell them and hear the leaves waving in the breeze. It is an immersive and healthy experience that I recommend.

The contrast of red poppies and green ears of wheat reminds us that Nature awakes for another cycle.

Where once thousands of sea creatures used to inhabit, there is a shortage today, and it is almost rare to find rocks full of life. As in almost everything, the Man has an ominous role in exploitation to extinction. One day, when it’ll be too late, we will visit a museum that will remember these beings. On the grey, bare stones there will only exist bits of rope and plastic to appreciate.

Portraying beyond the common point and shoot is capturing the essence of the people, the places and the light. If we afford to get these three magic stones, we get a completely ethereal picture which takes us to fantasy, using reality per se.

Glistening Sunset – Rio Alcabrichel

The river (Rio Alcabrichel) flooded the road, providing rare conditions which gave an amazing new perspective of the place. The silhouettes of the hills and the tree were reflected on the water along with the colours of the sunset.

O Rio Alcabrichel inundou a estrada, proporcionando condições incomuns que deram uma nova e espetacular perspetiva deste local. As silhuetas dos montes e do pinheiro refletiram-se na água juntamente com as cores do pôr-do-sol.

“There are painters who transform the sun to a yellow spot, but there are others who with the help of their art and their intelligence, transform a yellow spot into sun.”

Pablo Picasso

 

“Há pessoas que transformam o sol numa simples mancha amarela, mas há aquelas que fazem de uma simples mancha amarela o próprio sol.”

Lately, the rough sea prevails for weeks turning the beach into a compact and washed sand. The white foam contrasts with the dark colour of the sand.

Nos últimos tempos, a forte agitação marítima prolongou-se por várias semanas tornando a praia num areal compactado e lavado. A espuma na rebentação das ondas contrasta com a cor da areia escurecida.

A sublime sunrise I registered on the margins of Alcabrichel river. The duality between the shadow and light extol this valley.

Um sublime nascer do sol que registei nas margens do rio Alcabrichel. A dualidade entre sombra e luz enaltece este vale.

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.

Ilhéu de Porto Novo

Ilhéu de Porto Novo

O Ilhéu de Porto Novo separa as praias de Santa Rita e Porto Novo. Outrora o mar e o rio juntavam-se neste local transformando este pedaço de falésia numa pequena ilha. Atualmente, durante o inverno, o rio tenta reclamar o seu lugar nativo, chegando mesmo a inundar os campos e tornar a estrada intransitável.

Porto Novo islet separates Santa Rita and Porto Novo beaches. Once, the sea and the river joined together here turning this piece of cliff into a little Island. Nowadays, during the winter the river tries to claim its native place, even flooding the fields and blocking the road to transit.
