  luisafonso / © Luis Afonso      Project : The Atlantic Light
Portugal is a tiny country in the west coast of Europe. It is only 218 km wide and 561 km long, but has an Atlantic coast of 832 km. If that isn't enough to explain why Portuguese have a special relation with the ocean, its long history sure is.

I don't remember the first time I set my feet on the ocean's sandy shore - I was too infant to remember... - but I know exactly when I first introduced my wide angle zoom to the temper of the sea. It was a beautiful late afternoon in the Spring of 2006. From that day on, I kept on returning several times and my love for seascapes never ceased to grow.

What you'll see here is a journey of learning for me and - I hope - one of discovery for you. In the process, I refined my composition skills, my editing knowledge and, above all, I discovered that to capture great photos in this discipline it's crucial to go out only when the light is right. "First, light", Joe Cornish says, and I can't agree more. And it's that light I want to share with you here.
