Serra de Água - Madeira - Portugal




It's seems Machu Pichu in Peru, without ruins, but this paradise is located on the island of Madeira, Portugal,
where we can see "waterfalls of clouds" allways moving. It is an impressive spectacle offered by mother nature.

Sunrise in Alqueva, Alentejo - Portugal

FROM HELL TO HEAVEN - DO DESERTO AO PARAÍSO
Alqueva was an old project that took many years to be completed. The word "Alqueva" derives from "fallow" which means "land set-aside" or "desert", which in fact is in accordance with the geological characteristics of the parish, dry and very rough soil due to drought; this problem was one of their greatest obstacles in this development.

Alqueva foi um velho projecto que demorou muitos anos para ser concretizado. A palavra “Alqueva” deriva de “alqueive” que significa “terra de pousio” ou “deserta”, o que de facto está em conformidade com as características geológicas da freguesia, de solo muito seco e áspero, devido à escassez de água, sendo este problema um dos maiores obstáculos ao seu desenvolvimento.
Now, in this previously dry desert area, we have one of the largest lakes in Europe which was not created by God, but by mankind. The success was so great that this area no longer has a dry climate and has become a region of rain. This may be a good example for solving problems of drought in other dry regions.

Numa zona seca e desértica temos agora um dos maiores lagos da Europa que em vez de ter sido criado pelas mãos de Deus foi pelas do Homem! O sucesso foi tão grande que aquela zona deixou de ter um clima seco e passou a ser uma região de chuvas. Um bom exemplo para resolver o problema de regiões pobres e secas.

Kaye & José - Amazing Photos

Brief profile on Kaye & José

Kaye lives in Australia and José lives in Portugal. They have never met personally. They developed a friendship on the internet through a site called Whatatop; purely as amateur/beginner photographers. They both thoroughly enjoy their photography and try to capture beautiful and different images that will please viewers, especially those who enjoy photography and art.

Many of their photographs achieved rather high ratings on the Whatatop site. These ratings were voted upon by the Users and visitors who visited this site. It is believed that due to the high ratings of their photos, that the abovementioned site removed their top photos without any notice, which has lead people to believe that the above site is not really trustworthy and can be unfair.

Kaye & José have therefore decided to make a blog to show their photos openly and freely for the enjoyment of viewers. “Freedom” is a very important component in the field of photography and art, which allows people to show their own creativity. Without personal creativity, there would be no fine art or photography in the world for people to enjoy.
