While having a short week holiday in Algarve with friends we decided to leave Portimao at 4:00 am and drive to Lisbon to get this sunrise shot (above). Before our short trip to Portugal we spoke about getting this shot but never really thought we would do it. We arrived just in time for sunrise and to be honest we were very lucky to get one of the most colourful sunrises I have seen in a long time.
After we had the shot in the bag we spent the day in a busy Lisbon but realised very quickly that we are going to need to come back to appreciate this beautiful city with its wonderful inhabitants. Friendly people, great food, beautiful country. Thanks Portugal!
