    Some pictures taken in Cascais, quite close to Lisbon. The weather was great that day. We could even try the water on the beach… In December.

    Alfama

    Some pictures of Alfama, in Lisbon, from my quick weekend trip. Prepare to walk a lot if you want to visit this area of the city.

    Missing summer?(2)

    Missing summer?

    Beaches are great for photography. I took this picture while I was on holidays in Portugal, a place where I try to go as often as possible. It was just an experiment with high-speed shutter photography. In this case 1/2000 of a second was enough to completely freeze the crashing wave coming. The sunset light…
