The Portuguese title translates into - Chapel of the Lord of Stone....

I've wanted to come and shoot this for as long as I can remember ever first seeing it a long time ago, a fascinating little chapel built on a small rocky outcrop jutting out into the Atlantic Ocean.

I was over in Portugal in September but the weather just awful with heavy rainfall, and wasn't even worth coming here, so when I went over again in November this was high on my priority list of places to visit.

My first day here and it looked to be ideal for sunset as it was the only day forecast with any form of cloud, and true to the forecast pretty much the rest of the week turned out cloud free so I chose this day to come and shoot this, also the high tide matched the sunset to within 30 minutes so it was literally perfect.

I'd got here a good few hours before sunset to recce the place and figured it wouldn't exactly be difficult to kill a few hours lying on the beach watching the sun drop with a few beers, which is pretty much what happened, I managed a few shots from the opposite side too with rocks in the sea providing additional interest before moving around to this side for the sunset.

Although I'd packed most of my photography kit for this trip I'd given scant thought to any kind of waterproof footwear, so within about 5 minutes of shooting my useless trainers were absolutely soaked through as the waves broke over my feet, but, once you're wet, you're wet!.....

In the end I managed quite a few shots from here including some shots in the opposite direction to this where the sky was really kicking off in vivid Pinks and Yellows, a great afternoon / evenings shooting and all there was left to do was walk back to the station to catch the train back into Porto, with soaking wet trainers, and a smile.

A quick 1 dayer up to the Lakes to meet up with the gang, some of whom I hadn't seen for a long time due to Covid.

The previous afternoon / evening was very wet and yielded very little (apart from a great curry in Ambleside)!

With the weather looking generally poor for the day after we decided to head to this area on the off chance of there being some mist hanging about as the skies were forecast to be pretty much full on cloud.

This was one of 2 shots I got from the morning that I like and all in all given the weather it was a miracle we managed to get anything, this peaceful and glorious scene caught my eye from a distance away, Lingmoor fell can be seen to the rear. Worth having a click on it and viewing large.

Welcome to Mardale Green Village in the English Lake District, or rather what is left of it....

After a huge dry spell and heavy water use the water level in Haweswater has dropped to under 40% full, this means that for the first time since 1995, some 26 years ago! this section of the former Mardale Green Village the usually lies fully underwater was now visible.

Mardale Green used to be a tiny Cumbrian Farming Village, complete with a Church, and a Pub, in the 1930's the village was evacuated as the demand for water grew, the Village was largely flattened by the Army, and Haweswater Reservoir that we see today was created to supply water to far away Manchester! There was a public outcry at the time, but it was not heeded and the controversial plans went ahead. All the bodies from the Church Cemetery were exhumed and moved to another Cemetery in the neighbouring village of Shap.

The walls despite being underwater for nearly 100 years are in remarkable condition, a testament to the hardy fell folks who built them!

I had a good while shooting here with both the regular camera and the drone to document it all, and couldn't resist this long exposure image using the stone walls of an old road leading into the water, after all I may have to wait another 26 years for this to happen again!

A much needed few days away to Anglesey with plenty of photography involved has really stoked my fires again, it's been so sporadic these past 18 months, stop, start, stop again.... due to you know what...

I hadn't shot this location for years and decided to revisit as I was only staying about 30 minutes away, to be honest it felt great getting out by the sea again, which without doubt is my favourite form of photography (coastal) the trip yeilded some great results and some of the locations I was able to use the drone at have really brought that into it's own as well.

No drones allowed here so this was an amble down to a cliff edge to find a spot that myself and my bag were unlikely to tumble off.. thankfully that didn't happen and it was a great spot to watch the sunset while taking pictures and observing all the loud screaming seabirds coming and going from the cliffs.
