OK, truth is it’s a couple of years late, and it`s not even in the US… and it was probably in late August…
Taken in the Algarve, Portugal, during one of their many reasons to throw a big party. I needed to get both sources in and my lens wasn’t wide enough… so as I do, I panned 2 shots and stitched ’em together in PS.
That was one amazing display over Carvoeiro beach, a small fishing village that is rapidly expanding but is still a charming reminder of what life was like down there before the EU bulldozed in. I was lucky to get that vantage point, in fact in the back yard of some Portuguese family who didn’t really understand what I was doing there with my tripod and sent their dog out to chase me away… silly thing just ended up humping my leg and went back inside to sleep it off. I seem to have that effect on dogs… go figure!
Please try the large view… it’s totally meaningless without !!
