Just for Dave (WhiteRose1), the first of my holiday snaps from Portugal. This was from one of my few early morning forays (well, it was a family holiday) when I went to Gale beach. Amusingly I woke an hour earlier than planned, didn't spot this, thought my brother in law had bailed on me and I headed to the beach alone... Only realised my mistake when the sun took an awfully long time to rise! Unfortunately being on the southern coast meant the sun also rose and set inland.
This image is sandstone rocks at Gale beach (pronounced Gaa-lay, I think). There are craggy bits behind with caves and small arches. The moon was shot just before sunrise on a 200mm zoom and the rocks about 15min after sunrise. This got around the old problem of a really large-looking moon close to the horizon but a wide-angle lense making it appear tiny!
V2 is a view in a different direction at the same beach.
V3 is the view from the top of the crags looking west.
