Being in Alcacer do Sal this beach is about 70 km away. It is a rocky place and it allows good photo opportunities. I left at 5:30 am and managed to arrive before sunrise when I like to photograph the most, either because of the light or the lack of people.

The sea was strong on this day but the tide was going down so I had to wait a while until I could go down the roughly 200 old wooden steps that give access to the beach. some wind and about 6 degrees made it a little difficult. Knowing the location I positioned the camera where I wanted and used the tripod that the waves covered up to 5 cm.

I think the light was ideal in bluish hues which gave me a feeling of calmness against the force of the sea beyond the rocks. It was hard, it was cold, humid but I think it was worth all the effort. It is not by staying at home that you get landscape photographs.
