sunrise at Praia da Adraga (Portugal)
sunrise at Praia da Adraga (Portugal) An unforgettable sunrise at this natural arch. I had a good splash from a huge wave while shooting earlier during blue hour. So I was taking this one with wet pants rolled up to my knees and my wet shoes and socks waiting in the sand.
Madeira moment (Ponta do Sol, Madeira)
Madeira moment (Ponta do Sol, Madeira)Those moments are pure joy: a lovely seascape including waterfall) and a perfect sky.
Ursa beach, Praia da Ursa (Portugal)
Ursa beach, Praia da Ursa (Portugal)Rocks, stone, soft water and gentle lines of the water. This is beauty to me.
Fanal tree (Fanal, Madeira)
Fanal tree (Fanal, Madeira)This UNESCO site is nice when you enter in bright daylight. But it turns magic when the ever incoming clouds move in at this place which lies about 1.200 meters above sea level. Then these trees seem to whisper stories of their ancient past which date back until the days of discovering the island in 1419.
Tim Burton (Fanal, Madeira, Portugal)
Tim Burton (Fanal, Madeira, Portugal)The conditions are ever changing at the great place in the Fanal area at Madeira, Portugal. With clouds coming in at this altitude of above 1.000 m it allows for play with light and the amazing trees which are many hundreds of years old and show the wear and tear of nature. This image might look heavily processed but isn't, simply because the moment itself provided so much mood and drama. Reminding me on Tim Burton movies and making this the fitting name for this image.
Ursa flowers - Praia da Ursa (Portugal)
Ursa flowers - Praia da Ursa (Portugal)when getting back from the beach I had to take one last photo. I took a couple of exposures handheld for a focus stack. The flowery beauty of a dramatic sunset at Praia da Ursa
Cabo da Roca (Portugal)
Cabo da Roca (Portugal)It doesn't get any more west on European soil than this place. This image is made of a pano I shot in difficult conditions and meant a lot of work manually putting together. 
out of time, Carrasqueira (Portugal)
out of time, Carrasqueira (Portugal)The wooden stilts at the old port of Carrasqueira is a place fallen out of time. Making it all so moody and appealing to photograph.

evening on the rocks, Praia da Ursa (Portugal)The Michelin guide describes it as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Who would ever argue that?

tree and a stump (Fanal, Madeira Portugal)
tree and a stump (Fanal, Madeira Portugal)this place offers so many creepy scenes once the clouds move in. it is just fantastic.
the laurel tree and the cow (Fanal, Madeira)
the laurel tree and the cow (Fanal, Madeira)One of my most intimate moments of 2018: I was waiting for the right light and amount of clouds covering the scenery at the Fanal plateau of Madeira to capture the approx. 400 years old laurel tree with a reflection in the pond. A cow walked by to drink from the pond. What is special about a cow? Nothing really, yet, the calm behavior, the scenery made me feel one with nature and literally accepted by the environment. ...sadly the iconic tree fell in a storm in Oct. proving how fragile nature is.
