Photographer's Note

You are looking South-West at Praia de Monte Clerigo - it is located in PARQUE NATURAL DO SW ALENTEJANO E COSTA DE VICENTINA

As we came from the South, from Lagos, after 31km we reached Aljezur, went East of it to Monchique and came back again to hit the coast :-)
At local surf shop we asked about the way and with no difficulty, through winding country roads THIS VIEW arose in front of our eyes.

I loved the ambience of the place - a little village on the hill facing the ocean. There was breeze and the air was filled with water, you could feel it on your face and your body - wonderful refreshing feeling :-) It was like curtains of drops creating magical mist.

I tried to sharpen it, but I lost the true image of that day. The water became more blue, but it wasn't such. The air looked crystal clear, like an Irish one, but it wasn't. That's why I decided to leave it this way.

I'm open to critique and WS, of course.
