    ~~~~~~~~~

    This near-perfect beach was considered one of Europe's best by The Sunday Times, and ranked number two in The Independent's list of top 10 Portugal beaches. Close to Sintra, and just 15km (9miles) north of Guincho, it is wedged between tall cliffs and has clean blue waters. It is no longer a secret and gets its number of sunbathers, but beyond the cliffs there is plenty of space and seclusion.

    It is always so great to shoot at stunning location as Adraga beach near Colares is, however trouble always is to pick one or two from the series of great shots you make. Weather was very changeable and rather misty, mysterious and wild at the same time. Portugal is blessed with such a dramatic coast that is a joy to visit and photograph.
