Cast ashore, 31 August 2022

While I was swimming in the warm water, about 10m away this amazing creature was being washed up onto the beach. We thought it was a dead fish next to a plastic bag at first, but closer inspection showed it to be a beautiful Portuguese Man o’War. A few times a wave caught the creatureContinue reading “Cast ashore, 31 August 2022”

#shittycamerachallenge — A visit to the Praia da Barra, 19 January 2022

It’s taken a while to get the film developed, but it was an enjoyable #shittycamerachallenge day at the beach with the Diana F+. One thing is certain; with all these light leaks next time I go out I need to start taping up the body of the camera before heading out.

On the other side is the sea, a haven for surfers and fishermen  and frequently visited by cargo ships and tankers entering the port. And in the middle is the Praia daContinue reading “Praia da Barra, 19 January 2022”

More playing with pano, from 12 November 2021

I took some of the raw photos from yesterday’s panoramas and put them through a stitching program called Image Composite Editor (ICE). They look much better, but of course you’ll need to turn you phone on its side to see them in their full glory.

Ferias 2021: até ja, praia (8 September 2021)

It was a glorious start to our last day on the beach. The sun rose into a clear blue sky and we were excited at the prospect of one final day in the sun before our return to normality. Although we went to the beach,  on our arrival it started to rain so we neverContinue reading “Ferias 2021: até ja, praia (8 September 2021)”

Ferias 2021: our daily view of the beach, 3 September 2021

No views of the sea today. Why not, you ask. Well, thought you already had too much of a good thing. So today we’re concentrating on the main character of our beach, the cliffs. http://keithdevereux.blogspot.com/2021/09/ferias-2021-our-daily-view-of-beach-3.html
