Albufeira Beach at Dusk

Sunset or dusk is a magical time of day, when the sun has set but there is still a little light in the sky. I wanted to photograph a sunset on my holiday to Portugal, but I knew the phrase “rises in the east, sets in the west”. Portugal is in the far west of Europe and we were on the south coast, so we were unlikely to see the sun setting onto the sea as I did in Sardinia. So I decided to try to use the soft light to create a landscape and headed in the direction in which the sun would set to find a vantage point. This was taken just after our meal at around 9pm, looking down the beach towards the centre of Albufeira.
