Boca do Inferno is Portugese for Hell Mouth. Sounds like a nice place to visit, eh? 😉 It’s pretty much a deep chasm where the seawater crashes onto the rocky cliffs, creating striking water shows! I really enjoyed this place, even though it was just a short stop on our pretty packed day tour!

The composition of this photo is all about the zig zags! I love the layers, the shapes, the colours, the contrast of the yellow with the blue yet cloudy sky. Such a gorgeous and inspirational place!
Portugal’s nature is much greener than I’d expected. Beautiful, lush greens and trees make for very pretty sights. The big boulders in between give me the feeling of a really old landscape and it simply drew my attention.
