Urban Photoessay: #40 “Porto Sunset Views”

Ola a todos! Hello everyone! Here I am, back with apologies, was urgently in need of a blogging break. Last 2 months were quite heavy: stressy times at work, living in uncertainty (dads health, but already received some ‘good’ news). Too much impulses for OstendNomad. But I am back! Live from Portugal, the destination of my well deserved annual December trip.

Usually, my holidays are well prepared. A list with priorities to see, plan A/plan B. This time, none of this, only a inner date with my camera:).  Have chosen 3 cities that are known for it’s Street Art scene. Landed on Monday in (O)Porto, left this morning already to Viseu (with overnight), in search of vibrant painted walls. Tomorrow Wednesday, set my sails to Covilha (2 nights). A city located at the bottom of the highest Portuguese mountain range, Serre Da Estrela. A day Street Art hunting, and if the weather allows me the second day, why not to do a hiking trip:)?! Thursday return to charming Porto, Sunday evening back home (Christmas!). Well, enough talk for now. Let me show you a few sunset shots, taken Monday evening (18/12).

Sunset, view on the Douro River and “Ponte Da Arrabida”. (no tripod, used the concrete wall as support)

Experimenting with my Hoya 200ND filter 7 2/3 stops (no tripod, used the concrete wall as support)

Well, what do you think guys? Filters are fun?! Really hope to develop my skills in this aspect of photography. Until next time…

  1. Beautiful photos! I hear you about needing a blogging break. I’ve been feeling a bit blocked the past few months. Perhaps a combination of losing daylight and the buy holidays? Cheers!
