Photographer's Note

Hi there,

I am giving you a few day break from my polish series, because yesterday I started going through my pictures from my holidays in Portugal. I spent a lovely week in beautiful weather and scenery, which you can see on the photo ;)

Ponta da Piedade is a headland to the south of Lagos, surrounded by fascinating rock formations in crystal clear seas. The sandy coves of Praia de Dona Ana and Praia do Camilo are sheltered and tucked away between high sandstone cliffs. The point is dotted with unusual sea caves which can be viewed by boat.

Lagos, itself an attractive town with a new marina area, also contains historical buildings worth taking a look at, and its fortifications date back to the 8th Century in places.

I was very lucky withe the light, which was like this only for few minutes. I'm personally very impressed with this place, so I would like to know what you Guys think about it?

Have a great evening!
