Close-up


Jake has provided the word close-up for inspiration for our Sunday Post.

You already know that nature is always close to my heart, so here goes...
An Algarve stream
A beautiful stream somewhere in the Algarve, on a hot summer's day.
And now for the close-up:
Rocks surrounded by cool, clear water!
For those who know the Algarve, can you guess where I took these photos? Let me give you a hint - it's another Algarve gem, but probably much less well-known than this one.



To see all the other interpretations in this Sunday post challenge, check out the comments' section at Jake's prompting post.

    1. Definitely, unless too many people decide to vist at the same time! Then it can get a bit crowded and noisy.

  6. I'm envious that you found a stream with water in it at this time of the year, the river in Alte is hardly flowing. Thank you for the lovely photos.

    1. Hehehehe, I did feel a guilty pleasure when mentioning winter, as it's snowing even in S. Africa! In the Algarve we had 40degrees C on Friday. I'm in the north and it's much cooler, with the met office promising rain for tomorrow!

  10. Hi,
    I just wanted to say thanks for visiting my blog and following. You have beautiful pictures here. Since I have never heard of the Algarve, I'll be looking it up as soon as I leave here. :)
