Breakfast canceling did do the trick to get this impression of the last morning of out extended (extensive) weekend with a small bunch of Tyrolians roaming the landscape for some good food and wine. The pertinacious leadership of Bruno Resi did help a lot.

Solved riddle; sovereignly solved by Matthias S.

Technical details
Fuji X-T2, handheld
HF RAWS, stitched with PTGUI after CPO treatment. Skaling and finishing touch with Gimp.

Horizon problem sustained due to unregular scatter of control points even after thorough optimization including horizontal control points. Especially critical - the duoro estuary on the lefthand half (at Farol do Pontão). Finally I applied some pixel-based horizon straightening ..


Now the sea is calm. But when I was there, near the lighthouse, there were very high waves. I am used to the waves of the Mediterranean, but the waves of the Ocean are a different thing....

Giuseppe - I think there is hardly a place were you have bot been ...

That morning the bad weather of the weekend finally passed.
I did see some nice spray prior to this picture but low tide did set in and everything calmed down even more.

I have traveled only in Europe and I know well only Italy.
Near the lighthouse there are signs that warn you not to approach in case of storm. In the days when I was, a tourist was overwhelmed by the waves.

But Europe you know very well !!

Here is an impressiv galery of a local devoted to big spray shots at this location

When I was there, it was more or less like that ;-)

I do not get scared easily, but that time I got scared ;-)

Knüppeldicke Herausforderung!

Herrliches Licht.

Für dieses wunderschöne Motiv hat sich die Nacharbeit gelohnt.
