Photographer's Note

I've just came back from fantastic trip to Portugal where I was fortunate enough to be taken to incredibly beautiful and overwhelming place - Praia da Ursa (Ursa Beach) The rocks, the waves and the wind make for a mindblowing spectacle. It is considered the most beautiful beach of Portugal and one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe. We've waited for the sun to set down and this picture was taken with the strongest sunset light just before the sun has disappeared for that day.

This photo is a result of being part of TE. I've admired Luis photos from this beach (not only those) and as I had a business meeting in Lisbon I've taken the opportunity to meet some other talented photographer from TE. Luis, thank you again for taking me there!!

Location: Praia da Ursa (Ursa Beach)
Getting There: By public transport. From Lisbon Rossio station take the train to Sintra (about 45 minutes). Then take the bus to Cabo da Roca, the western most point of continental Europe (another 45 minutes and quite a ride through tiny alleys. It is of course much easier to get there by car…
Comments: There are two paths leading down to the beach. One is steep and difficult, the other less so, but longer and the smaller loose stones instead of the bigger rocks make for a different challenge.You should definitely not be afraid of heights :)
