From Monte Pindo



As we were driving back from Monte Pindo yesterday evening there were some stunning optical effects, not least the reflection of Venus on the sea, making a beam of light leading from the horizon to the shore. Sadly we couldn't stop to get a photo of this. The moon was also just rising as we were going to leave, and as it started to poke above the hill tops there was a magical moment as a wind turbine filled most of the face of the moon. If I had time I would go back to the same spot just to get this image. It was truly stunning!

The picture of boardwalk is one of your best (if I may say). It's a beautiful black & white.

Thanks Luca, the comment is much appreciated! It was immediately eye-catching and the simplicity of it pleases me too.
