Brighton / Spring 2014

We visit Brighton quite often as it is a place where we met and had nice time 🙂

I love the beach, atmosphere and architecture of this city.

Let me show you my best documentary shots ever 😉

The Royal Pavilion is an exotic palace in the centre of Brighton with a colourful history. Built as a seaside pleasure palace for King George IV, this historic house mixes Regency grandeur with the visual style of India and China.

Ponta da Piedade / Nature photography

Ponta da Piedade is a group of rocks formations on south Portugal,  near Lagos on the coastline of Algarve.

Consisting of yellow-golden clifflike rocks up to 20 meters high, they are one of the most famous touristic attractions of Portugal. Several grottos in Ponta da Piedade can be visited by boat.

Praia dos Careanos

Praia dos Careanos is the third beach we have visited. It is located on west from Praia da Rocha and Praia dos Tres Castelos in Portimao, Algarve. Rocks there conceal secret caves, chambers and passageways.

Portimao, Algarve – First glance /May 2016

Algavre on the South of Portugal is the paradise we have found – more about it later on – just wait for sunsets xd

Our Epic trip 2016 – Portugal, Spain, Morocco and Gibraltar started in Portimao which is located just 70km West from Faro. The main attraction and most popular,written in guides place is Praia da Rocha:

Nevertheless, the place we found was not Praia da Rocha at all, it was Praia dos Tres Castelos that charmed us with beautiful rocks:

Isn’t it beautiful ? When we saw those rocks from the above, we just headed there 🙂

Audley End House and area

Saffron Walden is a small town located in Essex. Actually it is in boarder of three counties: Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire. It is well known for market and medieval buildings. This wealthy area just 40mins away from London is rich in colorful historic buildings and victorian gardens.

Audley End House is the largest 17th century country house just outside Saffron Walden. In summer, there are shows of horse driving and riding in traditional victorian style 🙂  Audley End House – English Heritage.

In winter, you can always enjoy my winter landscapes of this place.

Littlebury, on the other hand is a small village between these two places. It has no shop, but one pub – at least xd And the buildings are small and cute 🙂
