Sky Watch Friday





Last February I spent a weekend in a small town named Torreira, close to the city of Aveiro . This town is a very small one and it has two kinds of views: one to the sea and on the opposite side, to the river - in this case, the "Ria de Aveiro".



Through my room window I could see the river so well and I knew that the sun would rise right there in front of my eyes. So, next morning I woke up at 6,30 a.m. - it was still dark - and prepare myself to a beautiful sunrise. These are two of a lot of photos I took on that day.



It was worth it!






No passado mês de Fevereiro fui de fim de semana para uma pequena vila, a Torreira, na margem da ria de Aveiro. É uma vila bastante pequena com uma particularidade interessante: de um lado está virada ao mar e do lado contrário, à Ria de Aveiro. O meu quarto de hotel dava directamente para a ria onde eu sabia que nasceria o sol. Assim, na manhã seguinte pus o despertador para as 6,3o da manhã - ainda era de noite! brrrrrr!!! - e pude tirar algumas boas fotos em vários momentos da alvorada.


Valeu a pena!

a isto chama-se levantar em beleza.

Acho que é na avenida principal, virado para a ri, onde tem um serie de palmeiras, acho que não me enganei?

A ria um dos meus locais habituais de fotografia, muito boa escolha.

Of course it is always worth going to unknown towns or villages searching for their unknown treasures.
Great photos like these are even best than a pot of gold.
