Oysters pickers


Few weeks between October and November are the best period for collecting oysters in the North Sea. On low tide, one can pick the clams with bare hands, having few hours before the sea level raises again. In 2011 we went in Mandø, a small island by the west coast of Jylland, in Denmark, connected . . . → Read More: Oysters pickers

Sunrise in Møns Klint

møns klint, at 6.07

The 23. march 2012 was a neat and dry night, and I went again in Møns Klint, circa 130Km south of Copenhagen. Møn’s cliffs are oriented to East, so the first sunlight paints the white chalk in red and orange. That day, the sunrise was scheduled at 6.04 (CET time).

Madeira – West and South coasts

Cabo Vermelho (N. Sra. da Boa Morte), 429m)

As said, Madeira has no natural beaches. Large part of the coasts are actually cliffs, and the lack of plans in the most sunny area has meant that every single horizontal field was used. Some of them are near the coastal line… and some have no road nor trail to approach. Only a lift.

Madeira – The old road ER101, on the north coast

antiga Estrada Regional 101

Nowadays, Madeira has a very good road system, modern and well maintained (except the slant of the roads, even the highways….), but almost all the most important ones have only few years. In particular, the new road that link São Vicente to Porto Moniz, in the north coast, was finished in 2006. Until then, the . . . → Read More: Madeira – The old road ER101, on the north coast

Madeira archipelago – Ilhas Desertas

Madeira is an archipelago, indeed. In all the previous posts, I referred to Madeira as an island, and actually the largest one has the same name. But in some photos one can see other three islands nearby in the ocean, called Ilhas Desertas, or just las Desertas. Here from Ponta São Lourenço:
