Esposende is a calm resort town in the district of Braga in the north of Portugal, about an hour drive from Porto. It is most popular for its beaches and water sport. We visited the city in April.
Following are some common birds that appear on our feeder during winter. The small balls of feathers are so cute, but also so difficult to photograph.
Clouds comes in all sizes, shapes and forms. As a photographer, it’s close to impossible to predict when interesting cloud formation will appear.
All photos were taken in Norway last year.
We have a lot of nice photos that somewhat is difficult to fit into the “normal” posts, so here we go with some random photos with a common theme, reflections in water. All photos were taken in Norway last year.
Maihaugen is a open-air museum in Lillehammer, about 135 km north of Oslo. The museum has a collection of more than 200 houses and is divided into a rural area, city (mostly old Lillehammer buildings) and a residential area. The majority of the buildings originates from the Gudbrandsdalen from the last few centuries, but also has older buildings like Garmo Stave Church from 12th century.
We visited Maihaugen in 2006.
Officially named Ilha de São Sebastião (St. Sebastian Island), but commonly just called Ilhabela, the “Beautiful Island”, just outside the coast of São Paulo state. A short fifteen-minute boat or ferry trip brings you to the relatively small island with a population of about 32 000, witch during holiday season quadruples. For most people that comes to Ilhabela do it for the beaches, sailing and surfing, there is also a lot of hiking trails in the mountains where seven tops reaches above 1000 meters
Ilhabela also has a history of being a hiding place of pirates and privateers, and has the largest graveyard of shipwrecks in whole Brazil, making it a paradise for scuba divers. We visited the island about ten years ago.
One of the few scenic train routes in Brazil goes from Curitiba and winds its way trough the mountain range of Serra do Mar and down to the port city of Paranaguá in the state of Paraná in southern Brazil.
We did the trip in 2007, but now it seems like the train stops at the historic city of Morretes, about two thirds on the way to Paranaguá. Highly recommended way to feel and smell the Atlantic Rainforest.
