Dreams with flavour of summer... [Special place of mine] by 

They were a very nice holidays, too bad it was for such a short period of time… The lighthouse is by the way in the Barra beach near Aveiro and was biult in 1893.

I could spend a thousand words descriving the beach and the area, but please, just insert the coordinates on Google Earth (40° 38′ 34.3″ N, 8° 44′ 52.7″ W) and see by yourself how amazing this place is. After all, for a photographer, a image is worth a million words…

P.S. – Another HDR experiment.

Self tought. I am still learning, I allways will be! Landscapes and nature were, are and allways will be my favourite thing to shoot. Other motifs? Yeah, they will come as well…
