Cova das Pedras 3

Posted by

This is further along the greasy path from yesterdays picture on the other side of the cove. The view shows the rest of the coast to the east. The furthest point is Sao Lourenco a long thin peninsular culminating in a couple of small islands, our next destination. {For the Welsh (and fans of Wales) amongst us, this peninsula, although very different, reminded me strongly of the Worms Head on the Gower}

You could of named this one "the five sisters", that is the way the penisular juts out. A fine coastline, well composed, I think it could be further improved it by either cloning out the tree (bottom left) or slightly changing the angle the photo was taken at. (Just my opinion)

@P J W Miller: Agree re the floating tree but I didn't want to crop the bottom off and I must confess it didn't occur to me to clone it out.

Breathtaking scenery, so wonderfully observed. I could stand there and just be lost in the magnificence of this scene for hours. You'd have to prise meaway! A superb photograph, Grouser

This is very much like our Big Sur Coast here in California! I like your composition here, the sweeping curve of the coastline gives it alot of depth. Nice Job!

@Tracy: Yes I know Big Sur. Same sort of angle to the cliffs but a lot more big tree cover there as I recall

A great scene,the greenery really stands out well.
Funny,the Gower is on my list of places to go this summer when I´m over in Wales visiting the folks !!

I like rugged quality of this coastal area. These steep cliffs look very dangerous and beautiful at the same time. Nice shot.

A perfect shot of the cliffs, well done grouse. I think you are on a different route to the one I took..?

@observing: The path started at the end of a dirt road quite high above Porto da Cruz on the east side and then more or less contoured round the cliff side. We only got a few K's down it as we had spent too much time playing with the waves, drinking coffee and eating Madeira cake. Where was your path?

Beautiful country - as is Wales. Jacqui and I did a short tour there a few years ago, but sadly did not get to Worms Head. Maybe next time...

Re: We must have taken the west coast, there was a visitors centre and market, and an almighty cliff drop to a beach hundreds of feet below. Then The Valley of the Nuns..... followed by another centre up high in a forest, on to the high plateau windfarm, and finally along a number of little towns built in the cliff face.
