Welcome to my blog.
Don't expect anything too high-tech or flashy, this is simply a 'diary' to share some of my photos, thoughts and observations - with a particular bias towards the natural world and the countryside around my home.

Skies and Masts
The weather in Portugal was pretty good. We had temperatures in the mid to high teens and it was mostly sunny. The few, high clouds for the most part, had the effect of making the skies more dramatic.
Particularly when the sun was low in the morning, or later in the afternoon.
Walking along the cliff-top paths, the Century Plants created a spiky contrast against the sky.
Against the skies around the marinas, more spikes punctured the scene, this time from the hundreds of masts on the boats bobbing in the water.
The colours of the posh waterfront apartments added more interest.
I wonder why they always seem to paint waterfront apartments in such garish hues..!
