The seascape on top was taken Praia da Ursa in Portugal. It’s a hiking adventure to reach this little-frequented beach, but the effort is rewarded by superb scenery that is dominated by huge rock formations at the beach. The photo on the bottom was a long exposure at sunrise on Praia do Camilo, Lagos, also in Portugal. There are a number of small coves and little beaches which can be accessed if you’re prepared to climb, or to swim, or to boat around. Both places offer good snorkelling opportunities, fascinating rock formations, and sea grottos.
Water & Land

The photographer called the photo on the left “Water, Land and Sky” and says it is one of the best shots he got in “paradise.” Whatever warm tropical place where he snapped this incredible image, we wish you could kick back and relax there. The picture on the right is called “The Dark Gorge” and was taken in Lammeröfen, Salzburg, Austria. You can see where this was on the map.
“Serenity II” on the left was taken at a 60 foot tall waterfall near Plotter Kill Preserve, New York. On the right, the “Waterfall Detail” was taken at Cullasaja Falls in North Carolina. This falls was also affectionately named “Broccoli Tower.”
This scene can be found around the Net named Blue Paradise or Azure Paradise, but the actual location is not stated. Nevertheless, it looks warm and soothing, a great place to kick back and relax. If you are somewhere cold or stormy, we wish you could visit here to hear the waves crashing and feel the wet sand between your toes as the sun smiles down upon you.
Fire & Euphoria
“Line of Fire” on the left was snapped at sunset in Pellinge which is an islet outside Porvoo in Finland. “Euphoria” on the right is another seascape taken in Finland. This time, however, this shot was captured in Porkala which is a cape outside Helsinki.

Most times, water on the rocks is soothing. However nature can always match any mood. Her sounds of rushing water are sometimes more of a tempest’s roar. The photographer said of “Devil’s Churn” on the left, “You see, it’s not just an incredible natural attraction, it’s more than that — it’s the way I saw it: dark, foreboding, gloomy, etc.” It was taken in Devil’s Churn State Park along the Oregon coastline. On the right, this picture is called “Seascape” and was taken at Park Beach, Tasmania.

“Fall River” on top was taken at Kuusamo, Finland. It looks like a spectacular place to get away from it all during the fall season. The image on the bottom was captured at the Island of Madeira, Portugal, and is called “Days Gone By.” The golden rays of the sun play over the rocks and water, looking like a lovely place to reflect on life.
