• Boca do Inferno

    Boca do Inferno (Portuguese for Hell's Mouth) is a chasm located in the seaside cliffs close to the Portuguese city of Cascais, in the District of Lisbon. The seawater has access to the deep bottom of the cliff and vigorously strikes its rocky walls, making it a popular tourist attraction.

    Hopefully the day I went there the weather was overcast and very windy and the waves were breaking on top of the cliffs. Certainly the perfect weather to add drama and depth to my photo.

  • Lisbon Oriente Train Station

    One of the most stunning modern sights in Lisbon is Oriente Station. It was built by master architect Santiago Calatrava with a roof of glass and steel made to look like a row of trees.

    The station was constructed as part of the Expo 98 building program and is styled in an ultra modern reflection of gothic architecture, meaning that most visitors are taken aback when they first view the station. It encompasses a Lisbon Metro station, a high-speed, commuter and regional train hub, a local, national and international bus station, a shopping centre and a police station.

    I've had the opportunity to see Calatrava's architecture work in several parts of the world, the Turning Torso Building in Malmo, Women's Bridge in Buenos Aires, Samuel Beckett Bridge in Dublin and the Reiman Bridge in Wisconsin. Very impressive indeed!

  • Sintra Town View From Moorish Castle

    When you're visiting the Moorish Castle in the highest hill in Sintra you can enjoy the amazing landscapes surrounding the town. From up there you can see the Sintra National Palace which is located right in the center of the town. The town is small but it is a nice place to have lunch or just walk the narrow streets with the little souvenir stores.

  • Castelo dos Mouros - Moorish Castle

    The Moorish Castle also known as Castelo dos Mouros (portuguese) is medieval castle in the Sintra Mountains near Lisbon. Sintra is a beautiful town with a lot of things to see so we decided to visit it twice during our stay in Lisbon.

    To visit the ruins of the Moorish Castle we had a long and strenous walk from the parking lot to the top of hill, from there you can enjoy the great views over Sintra and the surrounding areas. During the coldest season of the year walking the castle walls was pretty tough, enough to catch a cold that kept me in bed for the next two days. Sintra is definitely a beautful town with so much history and so many places to visit that you will need several days to see them all.

  • Bahia Honda Beach At Sunset

    The old-railroad to Key West turned this remote island of Bahia Honda Key into a tropical destination where the visitors can enjoy the beautiful beaches, magnificent sunsets and excellent snorkeling.

    I've been in this State Park several times chasing the perfect sunset. The last time I was there I found a good spot in the other side of the island and when I was ready to take the photos it had started to rain so I had to pack my equipment and get sheltered under the old bridge.

    Half hour later the rain stopped but the sun had already gone down. On my way to the parking area I noticed the bright light in the horizon so I decided to give a last shot in the beach. It was pretty dark indeed, but this camera does a good job in low light conditions.

    Conrad Hotels is an international brand of luxury hotels owned and operated by Hilton so if you are a Hilton Honors member you will enjoy all the benefits these hotels offer. The Conrad Centennial Singapore is located within business and shopping districts of Marina Bay, minutes from Marina Sands.

    Besides the good location, the service is impressive and the room they gave me in the 27th floor had the best view I've ever seen. Definitely one of the best hotels in Singapore.

  • Sunrise Over Alaskan Glaciers From Airplane Window

    I usually don't ask for window seats when I'm traveling by airplane, just because I don't like to bother the passengers next to me except when they are friends, so in that case I don't mind. LOL!

    In my last flight from Tokyo to Toronto, I was in a deep sleep (very unusual) when my friend woke me up exactly when the airplane was flying over the Alaskan glaciers just at sunrise, I didn't waste any time and I grabbed my camera from the overhead compartment.

    After reviewing the photos at home I noticed all the photos were pretty much in blue tones, first I thought I had the wrong camera settings, then I realized the whole landscape got the blue from the sky.

  • Avenue Of Oaks At Wormsloe Historic Site

    This breathtaking avenue sheltered by live oaks and Spanish moss leads to the Wormsloe Plantation where are the ruins of a Colonial estate. This place is near Savannah, Georgia, fortunately I was visiting some friends in Jacksonville, Florida and I didn't hesitate to drive two hours to visit this historic site.

    As soon as you pass the large arch at the property entrance you will be enchanted driving 1.5 mile (2.4 km) under these live oaks covered in Spanish moss gently swaying in the breeze. Definitely something worth to see!

  • Fisher Island Aerial View At Sunrise

    Fisher Island is one of the artificial islands in Miami Beach which is located in South Pointe across the Miami port, this island had the highest per capita income of any place in the United States, no wonder only celebrities and millionaires can afford to live there. The island is only accessible by boat, ferry or helicopter of course.

    I wanted to test my new DJI Inspire1 Pro quadcopter and South Pointe was the first place came to my mind to flight this machine.

  • Sunset In Bahia Honda Key

    The Bahia Honda state park is a nice place near the Key West in Florida where many people visit to enjoy the beaches or just to walk around the park.

    I've been there several times but never before sunset which is magic hour for any photographer. Even though the sunset that day wasn't the best one, the light was perfect to capture a truly memorable image.
