Nearly six months have passed since we were in Portugal, and it will be at least another two months before we return to a sunset like this. I know there are glorious sunsets in England too, but somehow we always miss them as they are difficult to enjoy from our home and we are rarely out walking at dusk.
All of these photographs were taken on the same evening during our usual circuit of Olhão da Restauração’s saltpans. We had been delayed getting out and so it wasn’t a great walk for birdwatching but it was a fabulous walk for skywatching.
As is often the case it was after the sun had set that the skies turned most spectacular. I took over 60 photographs in less than an hour, I did ponder about sharing them all but in the end I decided it might be best to restrain myself!
This stroll may have been almost a year ago, but looking back at these photographs I can remember it as though it was only yesterday. A big thank you to Bushboy in Australia for inspiring me to look back into my archives. I may be two days late for the Daily Post Orange but I think it is worth it!
