Photographer's Note

Hi Folks,

I took this picture in Carvoeiro, in the Algarve region. Carvoeiro was a
traditional, small fishing village surviving on the tuna catches but with
the time has become an incredibly popular resort with many visitors.
The centre of Carvoeiro isn't very big and there are just two roads
leading down into the town where they meet in a small square behind the
beach. There are plenty of shops in the town for the everyday needs. The
town beach, Praia do Carvoeiro is a beautifully sheltered sandy bay and
spreads out just in front of the square with cliffs protecting it on either
side. There are bars and cafés ideally placed around the square to still
enjoy the view when you leave the beach. And for photographers there is a
beautiful lighthouse which is a fantastic model to be photographed. The
lighthouse is called Cabo de Carvoeiro. The cliffs where the lighthouse was
built are fenced around which just shows how fragile the cliffs can be.
There are plenty so called 'algares' which are holes in the cliff where the
sea has eaten it away from underneath.
I have to say I really liked the area and would recommend it for both
photography and walking on top of cliffs to se some stunning views.

Have a nice weekend!
