📍Location: Ponta da Piedade, Lagos, Portugal⁣ 🗺Location Accessibility- Just put Ponta da Piedade on your GPS. It is a big area with amazing views from every corner. There is a free parking right at the entrance by the lighthouse so it’s very accesible. ⁣
⏰Time: 9:30 AM ⁣
📝TIP: If you want your blues to be more vibrant , the lighting in this spot in Ponta da Piedade is better in the afternoon as the sun would be behind me instead of in front (and slightly right) of me like in this photo. However, keep in mind that this area is big and there are many views to shoot in many different directions so the lighting will vary. I was very happy with this light so didn’t return to try again later☀️
