NIKON D300, Nikon 12-24, HDR in Photomatix
While staying in Porto a few weeks back…I had a great time walking around this area in the late afternoon taking photos. One shot I wanted was the Dom Luis Bridge at sunset. When sunset arrived the sun was not in a great photo location, so I skipped the bridge opportunity and shot the city that night. I had a 12 PM flight the next day, so i knew I could wake up early and take a few sunrise shots. I was staying at the Pestana Porto Hotel and luckily it was off season and they gave me a corner room on the third floor with a balcony on both sides! It was nice to wake up and set up on my balcony and shoot away! This was the view from my room! The sun was rising a bit to the right so I quickly snapped some shots. With such an old historic city…such a view is very sureal. After taking some balcony shots, I headed down to the street for a few more! Porto is a lovely little city! Next visit…maybe the winer cellars??? Enjoy!
