PHOTO WALK carried in English
Friday 2019 September 27*, 5:45-7:45 pm (Sunset: 7:24 pm)
Due to its not very obvious access, this place remains an undiscovered gem. We will see the only Portuguese palm species and one photogenic forest of native pine trees. We will descend a path to Antelope
Canyon stile sandstone formations. On the beach we will see algars (vertical cylindrical holes in the limestone caused by erosion) and a great variety of fossils, as it is seen nowhere else in the Algarve. We'll cross a natural tunnel to the next beach (which has itself an "island") and move to our "hidden spot" where we'll shoot arches, low tide pools with anemones, and enter well lit caves one leading to another and then to another.
The guide will be José Romão, a conservationist biologist author of the Nature Photography book "Cape Roca". He will provide information on the life forms and geological motifs that are encountered as the walk progresses, drawing attention to potentially photogenic motifs and giving photographic advice. Shoot by yourself or with the assistance of José Romão and ask the questions you want.

Notebook and pen, if you want to take some notes or write down my tips.
Bottle of water for you to drink (we do not provide anything).

As we will be near the cliff, there is always a risk of falling rocks.
The rocks lined with green algae are slippery.
