“There’s a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they’re absolutely free. Don’t miss so many of them.” Jo Walton
One of the things we love about Portugal is obviously the fantastic weather – right now we are in shorts and T-shirts and the sun is hot! That also means that we can enjoy some amazingly beautiful sunsets before we rush to put on a jumper!
Dave has been out and about in Alvor lately, it’s a pretty little fishing village near Portimão; which also has an incredibly long boardwalk to stomp along all the way to the beach or the lighthouses on the rocks. Alvor is a nice place to wander round – and a fantastic location to watch the sun set – so we thought we would just share some shots with you of the setting sun across the harbour:
There are always great boats you can put in the foreground!
and then the sky begins to change colour:
and the sea reflects the amazing glinting gold:
then the blood red sky paints its finale:
and you are just left wanting more!
Hope you enjoy them!
